# Shipment Gear Math

I was just wondering about how much the "drop rate" would be by buying gear from shipments (like stun cuffs), equivalent to actual farming.. I've always heard that they are worth it, so I decided to do the math (go to the end for the answer).

With 1400 crystals, you can buy 28 energy refreshes of 50 crystals. 1 refresh has 120 energy, so 28 refreshes would be 3360 energy. 50 stun cuffs for 10 energy each would be 500 energy. 500/3360 is about .15, which means a 15% drop rate.

************What this means is that buying gear for 1400 in shipments would be the same as having a 15% drop rate, and in much less time. ************

I think the average is supposed to be a 20% drop, but I'm not sure. Essentially, this is an amazing deal because for a very similar drop rate, you don't have to wait however long it takes to farm. Most people already know this, but if you don't, instead of buying refreshes for gear like stun cuffs/guns, just save up to buy it from shipments, because it is a much better deal.
