yes unless you got a orange weapon from a chest from playing through the game. i didnt get one orange weapon though 3 playthoughs so i had to wait 5 hours per weapon but that beats the hell out of fast traveling to reload chests to hope to get luck. o i did that for 2 hours with out getting one orange weapon with this i just turn on my xbox and wait for my orange weapon

I think ofay is getting at the hazards of leaving an old xbox on for 25 hours. What I meant in my reply is that it looks like you don't need to get all 5 orange weapons back to back for 25 hours straight. You can wait 5 hours get the orange weapon then shut down if you wanted to and comeback later to do it again.

I just wanna say, as you guys are arguing this fact, I just got a Orange Police Baton. So, guess that makes 8 weapons so far?

What are you getting at?

To the OP: have you tried it with other characters instead of Purna? Or do you need that jackpot skill for it to work? Reason I'm asking is cause I've been trying to get some level 50 orange weapons and I haven't played through as Purna.

Eh, all I'm getting at is it's easier to play the game and get the items than complain about items not dropping in a thread.

I dunno, I'm thinking too much, I need to not do that...

Ah I'm with you there. I played with 3 partners and 3 of us got the achievement by the end of Act III. I don't get all the complaining to be honest. I've probably found 15+ orange weapons in total, and I'm playing as Sam B with no skill to increase my odds.

Oh wow, this works. Thanks, I didn't think I would ever be able to get this last achievement.

I used Sam B. for this. I fast traveled to the church and stood on the upper balcony for 5 hours and fast traveled to the bunker.

I'm curious how you determined the necessary 5 hour wait time. Did you trial and error with 1-4 hours and consistently found 5 hours to work?

No he is correct, should have been "math is not your strong suit is it good sir" but I tried to make it funnier by using basic Internet lingo of adding an s when not needed since he didn't realize that 5 items with a 5 hour gap each equals 25 hours of your xbox sitting on and doing nothing

This.

I have found at least 12 orange weapons, both from crates and from dead bodies, either ones already there or people I've killed. I am Sam B and I was level 34-50 when I found them all. Everyone else I know has trouble finding them, but I found them so many times. I found all 5 in the same playthrough with the same exact character, before playthrough 2!

Maybe I'm just lucky.

This doesn't seem so practical though, and I also just got this without this method. I think what I'm trying to say is, if you want this be dedicated and go mash some zombie heads in. I understand how this can be helpful, but burning your Xbox for that long, not to mention the cost of running the electricity for that period, just seems impractical.

I'm not sure how people can play Dead Island without finding any, unless bad luck or rushing thru the game ???, i found 3 so far still in act 2 level 28 with Logan 1st play thru, I'm a bit of an adventurer and like exploring,i did find 1 that didn't count, "mission from the nun" orange sledge hammer, probably a glitch....

Roundabout pointing out that while this method may work, it's not the most efficient. And yeah there is probably someone who's gonna read this thread and not realize that it's wait 5 hours for 1 weapon

why all the hate? the op was just trying to help people out. If you already have the achievement, why even look and comment? jeez!

btw: this helped me out. 4 playthroughs and only 1 orange weapon. This method, and I got my needed 4 weapons. Thanks deathmule!

its weird to me that people are having such a hard time getting orange weapons. there are multiple quests which give you orange weapons as rewards (clearing out the graveyard in moresby for instance, and another one or two in the jungle). with two playthroughs everyone should have this no problem at all.
