whats with the drop rate in the crafting event boxs ive just opened 20 MK V exterminator boxs and didnt get 1 pattern at all 

so im asking what is the chance of getting a pattern from Xeno boxs as the AXIS ones are guaranteed to drop some patterns

    For Xeno, its the same as always. M2/3 patterns are heavily skewed, while M4/5 are nonexistent.

    Seem like drop rate is higher if you open nore than 10 box at a time

    placebo effect , it's the same for every box , just give you the impression it's higher if you open them in bunch

    Why would it be...

    Each box as a given % to drop each item and it doesn't change if you open multiple at the same time.

    Even if you say it , it has never been proven or comfirmed.

    Well I do not have that problem.
    In every 5th mk4 box is a pattern and every 10th mk5 box is also a pattern dropped

    That's what I never liked about the pattern drop rates for Xeno tech and below-- it amounted to fortune in order to draw a mk 5 pattern, and if you weren't lucky enough, you would be facing a rather daunting hunt to get that particular component.  Some people are just very blessed.  Thankfully with the Axis faction and above, the components can be measured for each drop and you can plan accordingly.
