The odds are stacked against Destiny 2 players to get Spire of the Watcher cowboy hats
After the launch of Spire of the Watcher’s latest dungeon, players ran eagerly with the sole intent to add a cowboy hat to their Guardians outfit. Several datamines hinting that dungeon would be western-style and Bungie confirmed it hours before the dungeon was released, so players immediately started to use it to add it to their loot pile. Despite the numerous times played by players that complete the dungeon, the cowboy hat remains an rarity, and it’s happening to everybody.
The player for Destiny 2 took Reddit to show their findings. While the results of Reddit user Sunder and Flame are not accurate with official findings, their numbers are backed up by the collected data collected by websites Light.gg, which tracks the drops from Destiny 2 players and the time of year they receive items. So far, the Warlock hat has the most chance of falling, followed by the Titan, and then the Hunter falls short of its rarer cowboy hats.
A few players knew that cowboy hats would be a huge selling point for Bungie to invest in the dungeon, and therefore made them harder to obtain. Some are even sharing that they were uncovered for the dungeons exotic, and the Hierarchy of Needs bow, quite before the ruins hit the ground, and they are still trying to loot those armor pieces.
The armor, weapon, and exotic drops are all RNG. Sometimes it’s faster than others, in which people can get it on their first drop, and others have to go through it 40 times before looting it.
Nevertheless, when we compare the armor drops of the Spire of the Watcher to the Duality dungeon, all the armor pieces are roughly the same size. Of the most, 34,51% of Titan players have earned the Deep Explorer helmet from Duality, and 33.92% have earned the Deep Explorer Gauntlets. That’s a factor of 22.25% who earned the TM-Cogburn Custom Cover cowboy hat from the Jack of the Watcher; and 10,12% who earned the TM-Cogburn Custom Gauntlets.
This is very bad there. If Bungie had lowered his loot drop chances for each armor piece, it would be better if the number was more closely aligned. At least 68% if it weren’t for the most part split. It seems that the Spire of the Watcher hasn’t been out since more than a month, but it does help with the research.
Unfortunately, it seems like the Finals players have several more Spire of the Watcher dungeons to complete before they can saddle up their sparrows and then ride into the sunset. This is not the last dungeon left behind behind.
