You can just use Cheat Engine to give yourself 255 keys if you really want them that badly. I tested it out with an alt, the chest drops are good but nothing spectacular. The problem is that the drop rates in the game are dog shit so people keep turning to the chest trying to make up gear deficiencies. It is not uncommon for someone to be use a decent weapon for 10 levels because they never find anything comparable. Most of the decent guns come from slots or quest rewards.

It doesn't help that killing most of the bosses results in the loot flying forth as if you just burst the worlds biggest pinata. I've seen an orange go into unreachable lava LOL. They still have not patched loot being underneath the world texture either.

I don't know, I like BL2 but there is a lot of stuff that grates on me just like the first game. At least this time its not related to the port itself I guess.


Yeah, I find I'm not really enjoying myself as much as with the first game, and a large part of that is that the loot is just shitty. Not just the drops, but the weapons themselves.

I find a sniper rifle with ~ 350ish damage, and I find it with Acid, Fire and Electricity, and it's basically the same gun. Then you find one without any elemental damage, and you've basically run the gamut. But for the next ten levels, you'll still keep finding that exact same gun, only this time it does 3 damage more, has one less shot in the clip, and 2 tenths of a second more reload time. And in their book that counts as a unique gun...

In BL 1, you'd find that gun, but with 2x Acid, or 4x Electricity, and it was genuinely a different weapon because of that.

Moxxi's slots have basically stopped giving me anything worthwhile. That's a seriously good place to upgrade when you're in your teens or early 20s, but after that it seems to become kinda pointless. Every weapon it drops is way inferior to what I've got. I only use slots to get more Eridium now.

As for drops, it's strange. My Siren keeps finding fuck-all in drops. Like literally every single chest I open, or every single boss I kill, all I get is green trash.

My Assassin, on the other hand, is dropping blues and even purples left and right in the exact same missions. He's even found two oranges already. So why the big difference?

I'm beginning to wonder if there's some kind of bug in the drop code, where if a character that has played multi and is now playing solo is getting drops as if still in multi but just with one player. And a solo-only character just gets drops as if playing solo.

I mean, it's literally night and day between the two characters, and the only difference I can tell is that my assassin has only ever been played solo.


I wanted some more keys to see if I can get a decent gun for my Siren, but eh, I'm just twinking stuff from my assassin to her.
