    -Tri shot - - - - - -Dropped by a Stump mini-boss, Guardians and DR-1's

    "(Named Charater)" means they start with the weapon
    A name with "P-" before it means they can purchase the weapon from the Fabricator

    You cannot remove a weapon from a Guardian corpse as Jack so you would need your allies help if you were to go for their salvo/trishot.

    Mini-Bosses only spawn in at waves 5,15,25,35,45.
    Bosses only spawn in at waves 10,20,30,40,50.

    Only dropped by allies:
    The easiest way to get the Lancers done is to Play split screen or with a freind in a private game. Set the wave to 41 so you have enough scrap immediatly to make a forge before the wave starts and have your human drop a weapon, by holding his right or left D-Pad button for 7 seconds.

    Struggling to find:
    If you're struggling to find the boss you want, I recommend you start your own private game on wave 10 with in split screen or with a friend as a normal character and you as jack with the Ai turned off and keep getting killed until you get the boss you want then use the human player to slaughter the desired boss. (the same can be done on wave 5 if you want a miniboss weapon)

    Waves 6-10 (16-20 etc) tend to either be DR1's Gaurdians snipers and all other bot enemies with very few swarm enemies if any at all or Scions, Hunter Elites and only swarm allies, it tends to stay static for that 10 wave set unless you lose a round. if you're struggling to find specific swarm do the above solutions set up but be on wave 9 (19,29 etc) for the best results for specific swarm/bot weapons. it is random wether it changes over or not so this may require multiple round losts.
