    I bought a gas booster. Ran about 15 missions, found 8 phones (4 regular crates with 2 phones each) after opening 60+ crates.

    I watched videos when I could for extra unlocks and spent about 100 gold for some extra. After a few missions unlocking all 9 crates with no phones I stopped spending gold and just went with the standard 3 unlocks.

    Without the gas booster can't say I would have noticed much difference, which is likely exactly how this event was planned.

    Edit. Just ran another 10 missions. 30 crates total. 6 phones from 3 regular crates.

    ive found 14 phones playing about 10 xp missions. Seems like every other one i'm finding 2 radio's from bronze crates.

    I have yet to see a golden crate radio (I haven't seen one in a LOOOOOOOONNNNGGGGGG time) but I'm having positive results thus far.

    Good return for me too.
    And that's saying a lot, since normally I'm not getting any while others are cheering their winnings.

    OneVoice Member Posts: 132 ✭✭✭✭ how the blazes after 6 supply missions I've still got 0?!

    The previous 4 posts are all positive so getting a bit miffed.

    Well maybe it is the luck of the Irish, but in four challenges I received 9 phones! Sweet!

    Now I am wondering if I should burn through all these radios or save them in case this will be tied to a future event....

    9 missions so far, 33 crates opened, NO radios. Crate types opened: 22 "regular", 7 silver, 4 gold.

    Where is the honour, the voracity? NG should be ashamed but, of course, they aren't. It's all "my luck", right @Terminates ?

    @Vudnik I'm sorry :(
    I have been complaining about horrible radio drops for a while, but I do it secretly with my friends lol My luck has always been horrible. I know some people have had awesome radio drops so I guess it totally depends on luck. I think I'll stay away from playing lotto for a while ;)

    Glad I had some cheap gas Challenge maps to run... Good return. About 10 missions and got 15 phones. One gold crate at 6 phones really helped the total. Hope to see more of those!

    I can't complain. The increase in number of drops and amount in the crates both...nice event. They should have done this immediately after releasing the new heroes. I hope its a new event that stays in the rotation!

    I got 3 for 23 gas (3 challenge + 1 equipment mission) one was from a wall walker. Better than nothing!
    Edit: that's pretty much how I ended the day. But today it's raining radios since after midnight EST. Just goes to show ya, random is as random does.

    Don't worry to much about getting phones! Spent 70 today for 2 maggie, 2 glen and 32 (2x) of abraham! Thought it was supposed to be good chances of them too!

    Does anyone know if gear, supply, or xp missions all have same radio drop rates? Or is one better than the other?

    Hi. Joined a few days ago.

    It seems some of you people have literally the worst luck in this game. I got 6 radios back to back this morning from the radio weekend event! What? I also got 2 epic survivors from 5 radio calls and a rare one from just one call a while ago, which is equivalent to getting a legendary.

    I feel scammed now getting a rare from 15. Jesus, no.

    I have noticed both an increased rate and amount per reward. I have emptied my tank twice today on challenge missions and have earned about 15 radios total (read as 6 missions).

    I recommend if you are radio hunting, do some non-biased exploration missions. The radio rate is marginally better than in xp/tomato missions.
