his energy is massive but he did not have many M4A1, that's explain why he is still weak compare to @Lana, he used to be stronger than Lana weeks ago.

From what i have seen, it appears that only those people who read/use the forums have many of the guns. Everybody else in the game has Zero or One maybe Two of the guns. Since i started participating in the forums i now have 15 of them all from the same location. I started to farm them when i turned level 30. I seem to get at least 1 a day. Its random, one day i got 2 really fast, and then nothing for 3 days. The next day i got 1.

Lol. I would love to see a screen shot of you farming them and have 5 loot bags sitting in front of the building. I have gotten 8-10 in one day, and 3 - 4 out of 1 full bar of energy, but not

Hit building --> loot received

Which blue dumpster in the junkyard? There are 2 of them - one small which is actually called 'blue debris box' and one big, to the right of it, called 'blue scrap box'.

I don't have access to the other place yet, but would like to get my hands on that weapon. :>

But thanks for your time Kirk. For future posts/guides it might be beneficial to refer to this yunkyard location as 'blue debris box' which is actually what it's called! :p

may it be that the drop rate has fallen heavily?
i farmed the shooting range for 3000 Energy and got NO m4a1 ?? is that possible ? normally it drop 3-4 but that days its horrible low o_O ?

khung003
11-06-2011, 05:51 AM
There is no evidence for this but you may find this useful.
Dropping rate may depend on the number of people who loot at the same time.
Millions players play this game everyday, at a certain time, hundreds players may do the same as you do. If hundreds people loot that place at the time you loot that place, the chance for you mostly none. Just mind the time, try when no one try and you will get a lot.

Note: Americans surely the majority in CC game. When all of them go to bed, the dropping rate for you should be highest. After reading this maybe thousands US people will not go to bed tonight :D

Max Power
11-06-2011, 07:57 AM
I have 63. My best was 4 in a row. Of course, then you go 20 times without getting one.

I think it is purely random. To suggest otherwise would mean that Funzio has engineered some sort of strategy into it. Given their track record with development in other areas, do you think they would really waste time with that?

Anything related to strategy or frequency or time of day is pure speculation based on fantasy. IMO, of course.

khung003
11-06-2011, 08:28 AM
lol, I have 110+ , but that's someone fantasy not mine, getting bored of doing things repeatedly, I stop farming that about a week. (if I did farm, 200+ M4A1, who knows?)

I'm currently burning all energies for the hardest looting place of the whole CC game or the most stupid bug of Funzio developer, don't know which one or both.

11-11-2011, 05:24 AM
Junkyard is pants for payout of M4A1
Boardwalk is far better.

It really depends on time of day I find.
I have my secret but won't tell. I can still get 1M4A1 to 3 tries at Boardwalk, but I've stopped as it feels like an abuse now. I prefer to use my energy for completing maps, makes me feel like there is actually a goal to this.

I don't care what anyone says, but they surely lowered the success rate to loot this item now. From my daily odds before to now, there in not ANY comparison.

fatacad
11-22-2011, 04:29 AM
You guys are idiots. Haven't you ever heard of probability theory? just because you cant hit the loot for a while doesnt mean they have some elaborate mathematical equation that the determines the loot outcome based on "time of day" or "how many people are getting the loot at that moment". Anyone who's played blackjack or poker knows that sometimes your hot, sometimes you run bad. You can flip a coin for eternity and, although unlikely, its possible you'll flip nothing but Tails. Relax its not a conspiracy, its probability

i've been doing an experiment for the last 4 days, keeping tab on my "jobs completed" stat and the number of M4A1s obtained.

missions completed: 135
M4A1 looted: 31

CONCLUSION: for every 4.4 missions, i received 1 M4A1.

if you prefer using other metrics,

energy: i expended 595 energy to get 1 M4A1.
experience: i gained 189.2 experience per M4A1.

of course, this is just a small sample. i will keep you posted as i continue to monitor my stats. i should get more stable estimate with larger observations.

going at it for 7 days now. looted a total of 42 M4A1s- that's an average of 6 a day, not bad, right? i did 229 missions, so on average, i had to do 5.5 missions to get 1.

10 - 15/day.

amazing!

i'm limited by my energy (have to log in every 3 hours). so naturally, my efficiency is ~50-70%. i think probability of drop is the same for everyone. it's just a matter of how much you tap the shooting range (which is determined by a- your energy limit and b- frequency of login).

khung003
11-26-2011, 07:08 PM
I don't loot at 1 place only, I switch place when needed, sometimes you got nothing at sr but got multi at jy. I prefer jy because the energy consumes much less, 1 per 3-5 tries at jy is far better than 1 per 2 - 4 tries at sr.

Last week (from Sat to Sat), I increase from 118 to 205. But because I limit my mobs at 350, and I got 130 sawn-off shotgun, I have no reason to loot more M4, so I focus on new areas, just visit back several times/day, but still got 30 more.

Don't focus on 1 place, because the dropping rate up & down. when you feel is lower than your expectation, switch. both places are lower, stop, save your energy, try it later. that will give you more M4.

When i first started at farming them at level 30 i used the junkyard. From level 30 to 50 i got around 40 M4's or so from junkyard.

Perhaps i will try junkyard some more, since the boardwalk isn't dropping a lot for me. Cool idea Khung

Junkyard
Blue Scrap Box - Hide Supplies
57 Energy

Farming means you keep clicking on the blue scrap box and hopefully you get the item. You can rinse and repete the process to get more of the same item.
The items have some hidden % to drop and only Funzio developers know what it is. Sometimes you get two in a row, other times you get 1 in 20 chances and sometimes it doesn't drop for a day of trying etc...Its all luck. Time of day doesn't matter, number of mafia doesn't matter for farming, your timezone doesn't matter.

Hope that helps

An item is straight % chance to drop when you farm.

I just post somethings about that yesterday, not sure which thread.

Luck is 1 feature for dropping rate, but since I can get at least 10/day in 1 week, luck does not affect me much.

(In computing, the computer processor cannot generate the real random number, so engineer must fake the random number mostly base on time clock - so there are no real luck with anything processed by a (nowadays) computer processor)

At the end of the day no-one really knows for sure exactly how it works.

Based on the simplicity of this game I would argue its just a straight %, nothing more nothing less.

junkyard has been a huge disappointment.

in the last 48 hours, only 7 drops.

Blue Scrap Box, Hide Supplies, 57 EN
I've hit like 2 times this morning and no m4 a1...

I go to the boardwalk and I got 3 M4 A1 in like 5 tries! :cool:

i have about 1300 energy, been hitting the 200 box for the last 2 days. I have yet to get one in the junkyard. I am gonna just start hitting the shooting game in the boardwalk instead.
I just started hitting the 57EN box today and no luck there so far yet.
Ugh!

Yeah, you were hitting the wrong box before. I never had any luck on the other box though, so I gave up. I got my first 3 M4A1s at the boardwalk today. It took me about 20 hits to get them, and I only managed to get in that many hits because I gained a level.
