Heya KI, I was working on Bonnie Anne's second promotion, and I was trying to get the wheel-lock whatever it was, and I went through, what, ten ships and still nothing. Is this a bug or just bad luck?

Question before I help you, are you on to Marleybone yet?

I would say that it is bad luck (extreme bad luck at that). My first question would be are you getting the "did not collect" message? If not, you may want to check your map and quest instructions to ensure you're in the right location for the quest (despite what your quest arrow is telling you -- in fact, that could be the bug, and I would like to hear back from you if this is the case).

If others have problems on this quest, please let us know.

This happened to me too; I had to fight nine ships to collect the Wheel-Lock for her sniper rifle. I was about to quit then I collected it after seven deckside battles and two broadside. I think the drop rate might need to be adjusted...

Whenever I am having trouble getting ship drops, I check my Map to be sure I am fighting the correct ships/enemies. The Map always has showed me which enemies will likely give me the item I am looking for.

What I would do is wait till I finish Cool Ranch, get the Santa Oro, then try again.
