View Full Version : STOP beating yourself up over the BTSU gloves

They will drop, stop farming for them doing the same mission over and over again, just try and keep doing various black tusk missions not the same mission all the time, it will drive you insane!!

They will drop but best advice i can give is don't expect them to drop, if they do than it's a bonus.

I am not posting this screenshot to rub members noses in it, it's just a good example of the drops for doing various missions and not even thinking of the drop, please note that the missions i done was not all black tusk missions as i was not chasing the gloves:

On a side note i do use the gloves and don't really benefit from them that much as i use assault turret and seeker mine so i have to either get some status effect bullets on one of my weapons (normally my pistol) or shoot a fire barrel to get the gloves to proc......but i can't be bothered tbh so at present i am farming for alternative gloves.

Don't get me wrong they are good gloves but not good enough to drive you insane when they don't drop.

Motto: Play the game as normal, if they drop they drop, if they don't they don't.

I now have 6 pairs.
1 set from doing an elite black tusk territory control - boss drop
1 set from Lincoln memorial invaded - random drop
4 sets have dropped from me doing a specific thing, but this does not guarantee them: camp white oak on story mode, then immediately after, camp white oak on normal. Does not work every time, but has given the best result in getting them than anything else.
Also don’t fall for the old ‘if you equip the sharp shooter, play only on challenging, and kill the camp white oak boss with it they’ll drop’ nonsense, equipping a specialisation does not change the RNG, changing the difficulty however DOES. You stand a much better chance of them dropping from doing one specific mission if you change the difficulty every time.

Any exotics I don't need I ask the players in the group if they need it and if they respond I drop it for them.

I have given away over 15 pair now, I enjoy White Oak just for the fun of playing it.

I am sorry to say if your building a seeker mine explosive build, the BTSU gloves are really good and itís a must have item. If your saying they are not good I would think you either donít know how to use them or your explosive seeker mine build is not up to par. Itís worth the grind IMO.

Yep, just do missions. Targeted farming will not work in this game with how RNG functions. The gloves are great for building hybrids with decent health/armour/skills and damage. I agree with you about not being that important on certain types of skill builds.

@cn5555ic Do you run a BTSU Seeker build in the raid?

The first part and boomer I have ran my seekers build with turret and it works quite well. The other parts not so much.

My BTSU seeker build is mainly used for heroic missions and solo play.

Yeah, I use it on Boomer with Pulse and Spotter and it's good for managing adds. I wouldn't use it on any other boss fight but I would for the transitions between them -- although I tend to go with Jammer/Oxidizer for the dogs and heavies in the between sections. Thanks for the answer.

Did you even read my post, ain't got a clue how it got to this and to be honest it's quite insulting.

They are good but situational at best. It's wrong to make an assumption players don't know how to build without more facts. The normal turret /seeker build combined with tech support, rooted, terminate can do all content. Mine are in the stash. So don't think they are a game changer and just play the game for fun they will drop. That's what the OP was saying.

Most of my exotics (the mightily high number of all 3) have dropped unexpectedly.

I had the BTSU gloves drop after playing White Oak on story mode and then hard mode straight after and it was only the 3rd time I'd ever played it, I didn't expect them gloves to drop. After that about an hour later I had the merciless drop on the Washington Hotel on Challenging. Yesterday I saw the DCD on a daily and thought..hmm why not? After killing Blades the sweet dreams dropped.

Not sure what to think about the Sweet Dreams because I don't use Shotguns or SMGs. It dropped unexpectedly anyway and I wasn't even sure how to get it in the first place. Just a bit of RNG luck I suppose.

Last night after not seeing an exotic drop for Yonkers, I did WOL and they dropped which I dropped because I already had them, moved straight to the daily challenge mission (DCD) and the Sweet Dreams dropped at the end. Talk about feast or famine.

This is madness. I've done White Oak about 40 times. No gloves.

I've done what the OP suggested. Didn't farm for them specifically . . Done all the heroic missions each week, killed random open world BT bosses, done the strongholds on heroic.

NO GLOVES. 🙈

Honestly think my games broke at this point 😂

I appreciate post and sentiment of the thread, Riflemania.

It might just be my superstitious side, but I believe - and play as if - RNG can hear your desires. As soon as you convince yourself you don't want it, *plop* there it drops.

Good luck to those still looking though!
