Robotic Self-Preservation System

Post by Pangloss » Tue Oct 07, 2008 3:23 pm

I’m looking for this to upgrade the starter pistol but have had no luck finding one. The internet said kill “mechdogs”, and I’ve killed about 200 doing solo missions but have never seen one drop. Should I be killing something else instead? Or am I just terribly unlucky so far?

Be sure to roll missions on all chaos, you'll get robot mobs eventually. They're pretty common.

The low QL stuff can be get by hunting the bots in Warton Valley (clans) or the green floating thing in Galway Shire (omni).

Or rolling all Chaos mission and hope you will get the bots, but its kinda luck-base.

btw, i never see a mechdog drop that thing before.......or I kill too few of them. :P

I just spent 45 minutes killing the bots outside Rome and still no luck. It’s theoretically possible that I’ll find one at some point, but the knowledge that Snarfblatt has a 100% drop rate is good to know. If I can’t find one soon, I’ll begin camping your spawn point.

I got 2 out of 10 kills on the bots (Lackey lookalike, just bigger) at Warton Valley, RK1. Doesn't take me long tho, just hate to chase after them.

While the green floating thing do drop (in mission), but is very very low from my experience. I notice this when I was hunting for the nanotube and the 2x shouldpads stuff.

Mechdog, non for me so far.

You seems to have problem getting this preservation system, while I always have problem getting the notum chip/fragment :lol:

Best place to hunt for engie pistol parts are the technoscavangers outside of newland. They have a fairly good drop rate and can drop the brain that you'll be needing for future upgrade.

Tried the bucketheads in Wartorn Valley for a bit and got 2 Techno scavenger brains, but still no Robotic Self-Preservation System. I’ve had a Notum Fragment for a long time, so this is getting frustrating. I’ll give Newland a try and hope my luck changes.
