loot question with couch multiplayer

  • So I own the game on the ps4 and I have yet to figure out exactly how loot sharing works with 2 player multiplayer. From what is seems every other item I pick up goes to the partner and the same goes for every item they pick up. Is this how it works or is it more complex than that?

    Also a 2nd question. Is there a way to keep the new skill stars from showing up on player 2 every time they log into the game?

    Loot sharing in local UEE games is more complicated than just alternating who gets what, but things happen so fast that it often appears to work that way. I'll briefly describe it a little more to help clear it up. :)

    If you look before you pick up the loot, you will see each item has a player tag on it.


    Yes! When an item is created for a player in a local party one of the things the game does is decide who that item is for. This assigns the loot to that person, and that means it's more likely to be appropriately tailored for that character's class, and will go to their inventory no matter who picks it up off the ground. This helps keep the action going, and reduces the time it normally takes to distribute treasure.
