DLC 2 - World Drop

Guns, Love, and Tentacles - World Drops are items that drop from any suitable Loot Source, within the Guns, Love, and Tentacles DLC, in addition to their dedicated sources.
There are 8 weapons, 2 shields and 4 Class Mods in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles - World Drop pool, so for farming a specific weapon it's best to seek out its dedicated Source.
If you still want to test your luck, you should equip a Shlooter Artifact or All-in Shield to increase your Legendary World Drop Chances.

Suitable Loot Sources within the DLC:

  • All Enemies:
    Bosses, Crew Challenges, Generic Enemies, …
  • All kinds of Chests
  • Diamond Loot Room
