PlayStation3 "Resident Evil Revelations 2" online event thread
18863Name:Tomahawk2017-04-30 12:39:53
I actually pulled 2 rainbows yesterday doing V-3. In no time at all. 2 separate sessions. Very short sessions. Nothing I'm going to use though. I'm fairly happy with what I have so far, so long as it gets me through the next ws. Which will be tough for me at level 60. I suppose it depends on what the last few missions will be.

Darkstar: if you haven't sold or destroyed the lower lvl weapons you were using when you were finding rainbows, try using them again and give it a little time before you decide whether it changed anything or not. you are an awsome player in my eyes so it really shouldn't matter whether your carrying weapons leveled below 100.
18861Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-30 09:20:54
Tomahawk; Darkstar again is exactly right. you can find rainbows randomly at anytime using anything you want in any manner you want. my method is merely designed to make it happen faster. but you have to be persistent, patient and have the self-control not to accept a mission unless you find a rainbow. if you want parts it's alot more fun farming those because you do want to carry your bigger weapons and still get an occasional rainbow. so to answer your question it would definitely slow the process which already takes way too long sometimes.
18860Name:Tomahawk2017-04-29 15:36:36
It's no problem, I appreciate you trying to help.
Yeah I'm game to try again sometime.
Question: if I go into the red door before Alex says "sorry, darling" can I then go to store to buy parts or is that as good as "starting over"?
18859Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 14:55:02
here's why i ask. if your really determined to find a rainbow? the right answer would have been one. the last one. Darkstar is exactly right about the playing for fun part. it's not fun just popping boxes for long periods. this method is for the people who are fed up with not getting good weapons and about to quit playing it because of that reason. last night when me and you were doing it together and you texted me that you didn't have the patience for it. which made us start over. i had already passed up two lvl 100 weapons trying to get you a rainbow. i did the same thing with dj and it payed off. he got one inside of 45 minutes. so if you want to try it again just let me know. ( i'm truly sorry you burnt up so much time and effert and still didn't get one).
18858Name:Tomahawk2017-04-29 13:39:10
I'm not particularly fast so it won't be as many as you might think. Also I was completing it when I found 2 or more decent parts that I need, which takes time without evade skills because I can't use my good weapons. I haven't ruled it out. I just don't have much patience for it.
The funny thing is after our brief session the other night I found 2 decent weapons within the first few missions just playing normally.
18857Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 12:46:08
tomohawk; yes you are absolutely right, you should have at the very least found a purple weapon. but let me ask you this. how many missions did you actually do?
18856Name:Tomahawk2017-04-29 10:45:03
I tried it again doing just as you said and had no luck. You say you were getting 10 - 14 rainbows per day. So for my 2 hours I should have something.
18855Name:Darkstar2017-04-29 10:32:58
Sounds more like just luck. My personal recommendation is to just open as many boxes as your patience goes on 5-3 or 8-6 and if lucky you'll find a nice purple or rainbow or...

Just play for fun. I tend to find nice items just not caring if a rainbow drops or not lol.
18854Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 10:03:08
although from the samuri edge up, power wise, opposites attract. carry an svd and you'll attract a muramasa or an 1891. or carry an nsr47 and you'll attract an ak-7 or a highroller. it just blows my mind that nobody else has noticed this. i got my overlord 100 by carrying an 1891 and a muramasa at the same time. i got my banshee 100 by carrying an ab50g and a typewriter at the same time. all while using my basic method.
18853Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 09:40:12
then i discovered that if i passed up the ones i already had they just kept getting better.
18852Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 09:34:51
Darkstar; here's my biggest problem. i have a memory like an elephant. first of all my method wasn't intended to find rares, just rainbows. secondly it didn't work the same way for me as it did for you. all of my characters were already ranked up to 100 before i came up with this method. by that time i had randomly found approximately 5 rainbows. only 2 of which were rares. a mr.train 5 slots and a basalick 5 slots. i've only been playing this game since last august and i have 220 lvl 100 weapons. 85 of which are rainbows. and i've sold or destroyed for parts probably 30 rainbows or more because i already had them. there is a method to the madness. i refined my method by remembering what i was using when i did find a rainbow. the first day i tried it i pulled 4 liberators using the mpm steady as the primary then switched to the p10 steady and pulled 2 coffin nails, then switched to the samuri edge and pulled 3 rainbow tripleshots in a row along with other rainbows and was convinced.
18851Name:Darkstar2017-04-29 07:51:42
Blue - I read your MB post, between the time spent on PS3 and semi fun farming on Xboxone now, It really is just dumb luck to be honest. Not to break any hopes of people that are looking for special rares... but

With confidence what I can say to new players and veteran alike base upon my personal experience, I notice rares tend to drop more frequently when you are fresh and starting out this game, I found lots of purples/rainbows when I first farmed code red on Xboxone and recalled a similar experience back on ps3. As time and hours spent goes on, the rate that rares drop seem to decrrease, nowadays If I'm lucky I tend to find a rainbow muramasa or amr every 3-4 months.

Someone that farms daily and does it a lot will obviously find rares more frequently than someone that doesn't, but in the end I still believe it's just all dumb luck, you either get lucky or you don't.
18850Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 07:21:14
Darkstar; feel free to try my method on, but keep in mind that alot of people don't have the patience or determination to use it let alone watch somebody else use it.
18849Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 03:12:07
one more thing for anyone who thinks this game is'nt intuitive. once you go into a mission everything is set in stone as far as what's in the boxes. if you don't believe me try this. equip 4 amr's and go into a mission and hit all the ammo boxes. they will all be empty. (guaranteed).
18848Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 02:59:12
for anyone who wants to know. i reposted my old method on my personal message board. (it was designed from observations on it does still work on but not for rainbows as intended. but it does still draw lvl 100 weapons provided that particular weapon doesn't have to be a rainbow to be a 100. but if your going off my method is a waste of time and effort because your weapons and perks don't matter off case in point i pulled two rainbows yesterday off while farming parts and carrying two amr's, a muramasa and an 1891. mind you these were bs rainbows. tricksters you might say. however if you do try my method on and start finding rainbow magnums, snipers, and amr's i would love to hear about it.
18847Name:BLACK-TIGER--552017-04-29 02:32:41
Thanks for the information
18846Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-29 02:15:50

Oh, duh. Thanks
18841Name:Iceman-live-de2017-04-28 19:13:42
The rewards you got are for LRC 205 & 206
Capcom send rewards 72 h after event has ended
(when there is no japanese holiday inbetween)
18840Name:Tomahawk2017-04-28 19:02:17
That's weird I got lrc rewards: a bunch of parts but no MP. Oh well, I wouldn't have used it anyway. That better not happen when it's something good though.
18839Name:racoonflitze2017-04-28 13:35:23
The_Bluedevil_68; thanks for your advice! Worked, "let's go farming"
18838Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-28 06:33:43
raccoonflitz; you can go to playstation store and buy add-ons for your parts and weapon chests. i think the maximum is 240 weapons with the add-ons.
18837Name:racoonflitze2017-04-28 05:44:14
Does anyone know why I only can carry 75 weapon parts and only 24 weapons! I just saw on you tube, that some guys can collect until 275 weapon parts and 168 weapons!
18836Name:Tomahawk2017-04-27 15:20:14
Terra? You mean Toma.
I don't have have 3 muras I have 1. My point is that if the game can't even tell what ammo you're using and drop accordingly how could it drop weapons according to your loadout?
Having said that I do still think there's something in what you're saying. I seem to be finding a lot of short range and long range tags. I almost always carry 2 long range+ rifles. One a mura, one a BAR. I just feel a little disgruntled that I find mostly trash when others seem to have a lot of luck. Even when I grind a lot.
18835Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-27 14:36:49
TerraSeeker; you just told us how intuitive it is in your own words. you had 3 mura's, why would you need rifle ammo? my method does still work off i tried it on my son's profile several nights ago and pulled a decimator 100 with 5 slots in approximately 45 minutes. i don't know if that was just a fluke or not because he took his playstation with him when he left so i didn't get a chance to try it again. that's why i asked if anyone who uses my method was still getting rainbows. but the weapons are usually only 4 slots when your off so i prefer not to go that route. usually it's just dissappointing.
18834Name:Tomahawk2017-04-27 08:42:10
Shouldn't your old method still work with deactivated? In theory it should, right? Or did I miss something?
18833Name:Tomahawk2017-04-27 08:37:43
This works for you?
I don't know, man. This game isn't even intuitive enough to drop the right ammo for what your using. I'll have a loadout of 3 snipers and a magnum, not fire a single shot from the latter, and all 3 boxes will drop magnum ammo. That happens a lot.
I tried turning off RE.Net and grinded for over 3 hours last night. Didn't seem to make a difference at all. I got an overlord and 2 decimators but all below 100. Garbage.
18832Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-27 06:53:42
i know i have asked alot of this community already but i need anyone who has multiple lvl 100 characters and a mic and speaks fluent english to friend me on psn so we can try different experiments in a controlled manner. my psn i.d. is the same as here. my son just doesn't have the time because he has a fulltime job, a woman and 3 kids.
18831Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-27 06:26:02
i'm sorry i didn't answer your question properly. you only have to be logged into psn to play online and do your daily missions. although you do have to be logged into in order to play lrc's, ws, and ihc's.
18830Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-27 06:15:36
TerraSeeker; i know it works because i remembered last night when i was trying to go to sleep. when me and my son first started playing this game he got signed into and was trying to get me to do the same but i couldn't figure it out. but we were playing together through the blue door. we got 3 badass weapons that day. he got a purple svd speedshot 100 with 6 slots and i got a rainbow muramasa speedshot 100 with 6 slots in one run. a few runs later i got a rainbow palerider sonicassist 100 with 6 slots. it took me another week after that before i figured out i had to setup a capcom account in order to get on then it took me at least a month before i found out about the forum. and i've been on everyone's nerves every since.
18829Name:BLACK-TIGER--552017-04-27 04:30:09
You can turn off re net for options menu
18828Name:TerraSeeker2017-04-27 01:15:26
Blue how do you expect players to work together when one isn't logged in. As far as I know you have to be logged to play online.
18827Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-26 15:29:52
esmigo; you know how well my old method worked, but this is all i have since they changed it. opposites attract. so if your looking for a muramasa carry an svd or an 1891 or both or visa versa. and if your looking for a tagged weapon, some tags are easier to find than others. longrange+ being the hardest to find. the more you kill with whatever tag you choose the more often you'll see it. turning off does work fast and well but in my case they're usually 4 slot weapons, not always but usually. i do have another idea that i haven't tried yet though. two players working together with one on and the other off i'm thinking that might take away some of capcoms control. because believe it or not they are suppressing the rainbows otherwise it wouldn't matter whether it was on or off. i'm sure that everyone can understand that. either way it is still going to be random but somewhat predictably random. i know i'm making as much sense as a box of rocks.
18826Name:Chayan13xD2017-04-26 12:23:34
The only method of getting good weapons is.
18825Name:esmigo0122017-04-26 11:41:23
Blue , I also think Capcom has changed something, could you post your new method on the youtube channel of someone here in the forum?
18824Name:Tomahawk2017-04-26 09:33:40
Okay so post it in the comments section of darkstar's latest video. Or if not that specify where. You want to help, we want the help. Well, I sure do.
18823Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-26 08:38:55
Darkstar; i was never looking for credit for anything and i'm still not. i was simply trying to help others who don't have the time to farm for hours and hours on end like i do. when i posted my original farming method on my message board i had no idea what the consequences would be. for 2 days after i posted it i was getting messages about how everybody who tried it was getting rainbows left and right. 1 guy even called me a genius because he got 3 in 1 run. then all the sudden it just doesn't work at all. so the last thing i want to do is show this to everybody because they'll change the coding on this too.
18822Name:Darkstar2017-04-26 07:52:44
Blue - I left this messege also on your board here. I'm more than happy to record and test a farming method for you or any other methods you like. Feel free to messege me on Youtube privately or post the method on any of my videos and I'll be glad to record and test it for you with Credit due to you.
18821Name:Tomahawk2017-04-26 06:01:15
Okay tell me how to lure what I want I'm all ears
18820Name:Tomahawk2017-04-26 05:51:47
That's weird; yesterday I got a purple MP and very soon after a rainbow drake.

BlueDevil, you were getting 10 - 14 a day?!!
18819Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-26 04:20:21
Darkstar; i'm so sick of hearing this random bs it's unreal. there is a randomization to it yes, but there's not at the same time. i'm not posting anything else about methods on because they'll change it. it's computerised. somebody programmed all of this. so the computer has no choice but to follow the programming. and they have techs to fix any problems that arise, like my original farming method. this is my last request to you. friend me on psn and i'll tell you how to lure certain weapons and certain tags on the weapons that you get. the only reason i can still do this is because i didn't put anything about it in my original post. if it was truly random i couldn't do that. if it was truly random finding a rainbow would happen as often as finding a damage 10 or a capacity 10 because there are almost as many variations of rainbow weapons in this game as there are parts.
18818Name:Darkstar2017-04-26 02:56:34
Bluel - I don't know what to say, I highly doubt any changes. The rares is all RNG and luck. Just this morning I was farming for 30mins for fun, first run of 8-6 got a MP purple, and then within 10minutes I got another purple drake. Sometimes I farm an hour or longer literally nothing. It's really just either you get lucky or you don't.
18817Name:BLACK-TIGER--552017-04-26 02:29:49
I don't type anything in my message board so I dunno
18816Name:The_Bluedevil_682017-04-26 02:21:17
quick question for anyone who cares to reply; just recently i posted my farming method on my personal message board. within two days capcom changed something in the programming. my question is. was this change for everyone or a personal attack on my profile? because for me, if i try to use my method it's like putting on 4 lvl 100 named weapons. all parts and weapons go green and stay that way. the only way i can pull a rainbow now is to turn off. when for the last six months or so i was pulling 10 to 14 a day on
18815Name:Gapson2017-04-26 00:16:36
Sorry, i forgot, You are always right.

If you ignore darkstar and just let her rant to herself, then eventually she will go away...........its almost like when you listen to the radio and that song you can't stand comes on, just change the station for a while!
18812Name:Darkstar2017-04-25 23:25:18
Come to think of it now I recall Lordpegasus saying something similar along the same lines. Seriously Gapson, your feeble attempts at mockery is second at best. But I love a good debate. Do entertain me.

You can use the message board after logging in with your CAPCOM Account.
