    Make sure you are hitting the right level salvages for the blueprints you are looking for. If you have the first 2 tiers done then they only drop from level 8 and 9 salvages. The drop rate for these is 2% so hitting 100 level 8 salvages with no print drop is normal. just keep hitting them they will drop again. hope this helps

    I got 2 more tier 3 BPs yesterday and today. I didn't do much level 8 salvage killing either.
    I say, don't force the game to give you one, just kill a few and stop. Next day, do the same.

    It's 2% for Tier 3 prints man. On average you should get ONE for every 50 salvage 8 or 9's you hit. You can go 100 or more without getting any too however.

    Enjoy playing salvage pirates...

    I have a few questions for you before any reasonable answer can be given.

    What level salvages are you hitting? 4-5, 6-7, 8+?
    Have you completed all of one tier of blueprints? If you have completed all of the Tier 1 blueprints, you can hit level 4-5 salvages for the next 10 years and still receive nothing.
    How many total salvages have you hit? Are you hitting 5 a day or 50?
    Unfortunately, players repeatedly “bubbling” each other are abusing this system.

    i found that focusing on 1 teir helps by hitting 7 and 8 you are spliting 2 tiers thus hurting your hunt figure out which prints you want first if you do not have shockwave L yet i would focus on level 6&7 sal. if you already have it and want some of the tier 3 stuff hit level 8&9

    Are you kidding me? The whole blueprint system is HEAVILY SLANTED AGAINST YOU!!! You are not 'supposed' to find enough blueprints to make a complete gun for several months! Yup, it's true! You are hitting 8,7,6,5,4's. That is all 3 tiers. Each tier you will have 4 active guns that you can get prints for...12 active guns. Each gun will have between 5-8 prints needed, average 7. So out of the possible 84 prints you can get you need to get the 7 or so for 1 gun only...less than 10% of the prints you get will be the ones you actually WANT. Then factor in the 2% drop rate....let's do the math and see how long it will take you to get that gun you want....

    2% drop rate = 50 salvage hits for 1 blueprint
    less than 10% will be for the gun you want
    you need on average 7 prints

    50 * 9 * 7 = 3150

    So after you hit 3150 salvages you MIGHT have the gun you want if you get the average. You could get it a little earlier or a little later.

    How many salvages did you say you hit? Oh yeah, 120 per week. 3150/120 = 26.25 weeks or 6.5 months

    So keep doing what your doing and in just over 6 months you MIGHT get the ONE drac gun you want.

    My suggestion is to pick which blueprint you want and work exclusively on that one. For example if you are looking for shockwaves then focus on level 6-7 salvages until you get what you are looking for. For me, i had to complete all of tier 2 before i finished the weapon i wanted. Seriously, it was the last one. I was hitting 75+ level 6 salvages a day. I consider myself lucky that i did this in a matter of one month.

    Sorry man...didn't mean to come across upset at you. Not in the least! I'm am VERY upset about the blueprint system however. I try to explain the horror of it whenever someone posts about not finding blueprints because they deserve to know what is going on.

    what do u mean horror all u have to do is focus on a tier to increase your chances seems simple and not at all a horror also every aspect of this game is geared toward spending alot of time to make it last longer, people who want to blaze thru everything need to pay for it, impatience is kixeyes greatest money maker

    well if what ive read is right the chance is like 2% of getting it so if u say u want tier 1 blueprints u should get 1 blueprint every 50 lvl 4 or 5 salvage u hit, if your not focusing on one tier then u raise the difficulty of tring to find a blueprint, tho u could just be very unlucky hopefully next update they will add a streak breaker to help out with this

    As I remember it find 36 types of weapons in the Intelligence Lab, but can not remember the total number of parts it is.
    If people log in to take 5, 10 salvage every day, I do not think he has done tier 3 weapon within 1 year.

    attack the salvage to get Blueprints (playing games from Kyxeye for several hours everyday) Blueprints waiting for you in salvage, use your time to find it, you need a little patience.
    I will say to Kyxeye, we do not have many salvage to attack, even if we only play Battle pirates throughout the day.

    Intelligence Lab does not say to us: buy canon soon, soon, soon
    but I have done, Mortar D71-L is the first type of weapon I buy.
    Mortar that D73-R I like it, but I can not find the first party for weeks, so how can I buy it?

    Kyxeye - Important we can find the first parts in all types of weapons in the Intelligence Lab, then think of us at Complete Instantly!
