Ten years ago, Gearbox famously launched a new loot shooter border areas 2 with a catchphrase: “87 bazillion guns.” It was clearly a joke. However, the latest entry in the series, Little Tina’s Wonderland, a similarly eye-catching figure recently surfaced. This week, a player came across a piece of gear that he said had a one in 85 billion chance of dropping.
Little Tina’s WonderlandReleased in March for consoles and PC, it continues the trend of the series agitated mood and random weapon drops. Apart from fantasy-inspired repression, wonderland makes some changes to the standard border areas, including some behind-the-scenes changes to loot drop rate; are the highest level legendary weapons It is rarer than in 2019 border areas 3For example.
beside the legendary drops, wonderland have the ability to spawn enhanced gear with permanent additional modifiers. If you’re playing in Chaos mode—a challenge setting that applies a number of difficulty modifiers to the game—there’s a good chance you’ll find Chaotic gear that has higher damage than standard gear. Then there’s Ascended Gear, which is considered the best tier in the game because it has higher passive stats than normal. The border areas Streamer moxy I came across what players believe to be the rarest item in the game: a combination class mod It has both elevated and perfect stat rolls.
The Amalgam class mod is a highly coveted item as it provides five random bonus stats compared to the three you usually get with most class mods (even high-end ones). The version Moxsy found border areas mod, many RNG modifiers: Ascended Warlock’s Amalgam of Glorious Purpose. He also rolled with “perfect” stats for each of the five slots.
His reaction in the moment pretty much sums it up: “Woooooaaahhhhh. Woouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!”
Seriously, look at this stat: 29.7% bonus all damage, plus a 49.% bonus to spell damage plus another 27.7% bonus to area-of-effect damage, 59.3% chance to critically hit with spells or abilities. It also dealt extra damage to Moxsy’s primary (Spellshot, 52.6% buff) and secondary (Graveborn, 26.3% buff).

“I was very lucky that the mine rolled with all the damage stats,” Moxsy told Kotaku. “They can provide both defensive and utility information.”
For Moxsy to come across such a rare find is luck in the dark reserved for lottery winners. on officer Little Tina’s Wonderland disagreement, players examine code and other game data to evaluate and trade key learnings about everyone’s shared eternal quest for finely tuned minimum maxing. passive stats for wonderland appears to be gear so-called “clusters” which defines groups of stats that cannot appear together on the same piece of gear. For example, according to community research, if you gain a movement speed on a shield, that shield may not increase your companions’ critical strike chances; those statistics exist in the same cluster.
one the most definitive theoretical summaries of wonderland It’s a courtesy that the weapon is rare border areas YouTuber Permanent CanadianWhere does the “one in 85 billion” figure come from:
Yes, I have a headache too. Thankfully, both Moxsy and ConstantCanadian broke down the math for me:
- There are six classes wonderland. High-level class mods usually give bonuses to both your base and mid-class. Because there are six classes wonderland, Amalgam had a 1/6 chance to drop as a Spellshot in the early stage, and another 1/5 chance to roll as a Graveborn in the second stage. that’s it 1/30.
- By spreading all five points evenly, the chance to get three skills works 1/243.
- Remember these clusters? Achieving perfect stats in five categories breaks down as follows: 1/19, 1/14, 1/11, 1/8, and 1/5—or all together, 1/117,040.
- Rising gear has 1 percent or so 1/100chance of falling.
- Multiply all these numbers by 100 (“for the percentage,” Moxsy said) and you get 0.00000000117%. 1/85,233,160,000.
“Moxsy’s Amalgam is the rarest item wonderlandbut so is technically any other Amalgam,” ConstantCanadian said kotaku. “Think of it this way: There are 85 billion different possible variations of Amalgams, and Moxsy got it.”
So the infinitesimal fall rate is not the matter itself, but a the flawless version of it Created for the character Moxsy. However, he noted that this formula technically ignores some extreme weed variables, such as the RNG weight applied to class-weighted skills. As a result, Moxsy estimates that the drop rate for this Rising Witch’s Glorious Purpose Amalgam may indeed be closer to one in 26 billion, but this whole another can of beans.
“At the end of the day, it’s very difficult to accurately calculate exact probabilities,” he said. “But that’s the consensus at least One in a billion for a custom Enhanced Amalgam class mod.”
Gearbox representatives were unable to provide any specifics when reached for comment.
In terms of pure numbers, anything with three commas is certainly impressive, but it certainly marks a change. border areas. The series has always teased players with a kernel of hope—the notion that by playing enough or fighting the same special boss over and over again, you might eventually come across the gear of your dreams. (Moxsy said the hardest items to find border areas 2For example, some of these rare finds are a “cakewalk” compared to others. wonderland.”)
“The Borderlands is all about chasing that rare piece of loot, and it’s pretty exciting to get it,” Moxsy said. “It’s obviously very rare.”
It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about one in 26 billion or one in 85 billion; at that point, we’re squarely in the realm of Number Big. With these drop rates, there is no way to deliberately hunt for a piece of gear. It’s pure luck. Immortality is short of inventing and playing wonderland forever, there’s no way to guarantee that you’ll get a piece of gear with these odds. Plus, while the stats are certainly awesome, you won’t be able to that is very superior in battle.
“Is it worth the grind?” ConstantCanadian said. “Absolutely!”
