that hammer mother hellen gives you is a quest reward, im pretty sure it wouldnt count toward the "loot" 5 orange. however, if you find them in a chest or on a dead zombie, that adds to the counter. im pretty sure anyway, i dont think they would count that quest reward as loot.

lol i know right, i played DI probably 2 straight months with buddies exploring every nook and cranny of this game. i only JUST got the achievement after hopping back on the game this september, obviously due to that patch. i found my remaining 2 or 3 within that first playthru lol!

Started this game this week and after every achievement but this (and 28 days) only have 3 orange weapons.

And that includes the one I got from arena C getting to wave 54.
Think I'm just going to have to spend ages fast travelling to the bunker.

Lol! Thing is that didn't help a lot of us. I was on about 15-20 hours after completion and even ended up completing with a second character trying to obtain this achievement but only had a total of 2 orange weapons. Along the way I opened every container I seen sometimes spending up to half an hour before clocking in just to make sure I opened everything. I spent a further 15-20 hours (making a total of 50-60 hours) before I obtained a third orange weapon at which point I admitted defeat. I than read about the exploit that made an orange weapon appear. After 16 hours or so I had the final two orange weapons.

It seams that a subsequent patch made the achievement a lot easier apart from those who already had started the game and already had a gamesave where it seemed to make no difference. Therefore, "just open containers and hope you get 1" won't help a lot of players.

I have looted 3 orange weapon and I'm still in act II. The problem is that the achievement progress says only 1/5. Anyone knows why?

-Greetings.

EDIT: The achievement did unlock after looting 4 more orange weapons, so all good :-)

Looting=means finding them. The ''Gabriels Sledgehammer'' that Mother Supperior gives you does not count. They must be found by either

A.The silver chests scattered around the island. (I recomend leveling up the lockpick skill to the max 3 early on. As this dosent mean stealing from others,but opening the chests. Wish I knew this early on )

B-Killing a zombie that has it on its body.


I only need one more weapon for this. I have looked carefully throughout my first playthrough. Now at lvl 42/50 so gonna continue my Logan runthrough to get my few collectibles left and this weapon.

So i might use this guide. Gonna take a break though,been playing nonstop for 4 months.

You can gain this achievement by simply just playing Bloodbath Arena.
It is fairly time consuming, but you can work towards the Bloodbath Arena achievements, level 50 and the basic combat achievements.

Every now and again during waves you will come across a zombie with a 'special item'
it will notify you what kind of special item it carries by the colour that pops up on the screen, (green, blue, purple or orange)

I don't know if it builds up over time when you don't collect it, but don't collect anything apart from the orange.

This is much quicker and safer than doing the 5 hour trick.

Ok Got it 2 months ago.

I still had 4/5 weapons found. I found 4 on playthrough 1,got halfway to playthrough 2 still no luck.

Then I joined a randoms game and killed a zombie. I saw the ''Badass Brass Knuckles'' on the zombie. I quickly grabbed it and the achivement popped.

One of the worst and dumbest achivements ever made. Entirely all about LUCK not SKILL.

wow legendary items are really this hard? when I played this the first time it came out. I had 3 orange weapons before you raid the hotel again. I then got my 4th right before the end of the city, then got my 5th on the first chest in the jungle lab. After that orange weapons dropped like candy from chests. I was even getting them from looting zombies.

I got mine pretty quickly, not sure but I think opening the red chests (level 3 lockpicking) helps as I think i had 3 of 5 from them

I got all five weapons in no-time, without any 3/5-hours wait. I was just playing normally, and opening every chest I came across. Got my last weapon at the shed near Mowen's boat at the lab.

In fact I think I got one in chapter one if I'm not wrong, just randomly. I couldn't even used it - I was like, level 1/2? And the weapon was level 33. It was a surprise to me because usually the level of the loot drops would coincide with one's current level, or at least close to.

Perhaps you joined someone else's game or they joined you and you picked up a dropped weapon or the weapon was set to around their level.

1st:Resort: Crate on the warehouse scaffolding behind the gas station (where you turn three switches)
2:Can't remember
3rd: Bunker #2 After playing arena for a while
4th: Those mini life guard stations on the beach each have a crate in them, found one in the closest one to the lifeguard tower.
5th:Even though i only needed one more i found three in the hard arena in the same game. Two before round 30 and one right after.

That's where i found all mine, i think luck kick in at the wrong time in the arena.
