where does it drop?
Evercast @ 2003-03-02 10:03
By T.I.M. in Foremans Office - The Longest Road
ghelu @ 2004-07-28 16:38
what does T.I.M. mean's hard to beat him?
Hilton @ 2004-08-31 08:15
lvl180+ can solo TIM very easy, problem is low droprate and it`s camped 24/7
Horndesu @ 2004-10-12 00:48
I did this over the weekend and found it not camped and dropped twice in three spawns.
Smacdevil @ 2005-01-05 20:43
Ghelu: T.I.M. means The Incredible Machine ^^
niaq @ 2005-01-16 22:24
lol, i've played The Incredible Machine ^^ its actually real fun :P
i got this for my doc on first drop, and the place we'rent camped... o.O
i now want it for my trader, and wonder if its really that hard to get...
with "low droprate", you mean like less than 1/10, or just that u need to kill him for a couple' times?
zyx21 @ 2005-02-09 23:20
T.I.M. now usually drops both scopes as of a patch a while back.
SyKSti @ 2005-05-18 21:08
I think they modify T.I.M drop rate since last patch. Seems to drop more often now. It's not always camp, but is during busy hours.
zyx22 @ 2005-05-31 18:05
Read my comment, T.I.M. now drops both scopes regularly (AKA 100%).
Kamyn @ 2005-08-30 20:35
what level is recomended to solo TIM now? still 180+?
homelesshigh @ 2005-09-03 21:35
I'd say 140+ is a doddle, a 180+ is pure rape
Kamyn @ 2005-09-12 19:23
thanx, much appreciated
Knuff18 @ 2005-09-22 16:38
Where does it drop nowadays?
mkamon @ 2005-09-24 15:08
soo .. now when the patch 1,6 is real.. u can not get in formans dungeon 100+ lv .. even with beacon warp .. so if u want it go get it bevor u gel >100lv !!
happypitbull @ 2005-10-07 06:53
or find the dyna or named mob that drops it outdoors on Rubi-ka
triggerzer0 @ 2005-10-07 18:29
what dyna/named drops this now?
Glargh @ 2005-11-01 02:56
It seems that a lot of the BioMare stuff were added to the loot tables of really high-leveled mobs, like the Notum Soldier or something. The official forums has more about it.
Cheysey @ 2005-11-30 13:15
think general coronis or what'shisname drops it...
jjones @ 2005-12-02 11:49
General Kronillis, Perpetual Wastelands confirmed drop

It is much easier to take him down now too obviously; a 75ish team can beat him with ease. An engi or MP with good pets can solo him at low level.
Nirh @ 2006-08-03 18:43
I dont get it ? - why is this in any way good ? compared to Targeting Scope - Vision Enhancer or ELLTS ?
Enfsandy @ 2006-08-07 22:37
the ranged inits it gives
Pnunu @ 2006-08-17 00:52
Good guide to the quests in the dungeon that drops the HUD Upgrade:
Xira @ 2007-05-23 14:26
Great for agent twinks :)
mahdi007 @ 2007-07-06 07:00
Xira @ 2007-05-23 14:26
Great for agent twinks :)

Agent twinks? Sorry but only scope for agent twinks (because you can get it on @ any lvl) is a 275 VE.. VEs add to crit, but for agent the AS ammounts to a huge increase in multipliers for AS..

For JAME sold on the other hand.. the inits boost damage quite a bit, and JAME @ 140 has such a low crit it doesnt matter
Nukerized @ 2007-07-15 13:18
ql 275 Targeting Scope - Vision Enhancer's are retarded and pointless, sure you get 8% crit chance or whatnot but your attacks take forever, I'm talking level 15ish twinks, at later levels you can cancle out the TS-VE debuffs and make it worth it but, I am almost willing to bet that two agents the same level with the same stuff on, except for the scopes, that the one with faster inits would probably win, considering theres Concentration witch gives agent all the crit chance he'll need for most of his damage in pvp. (long reply >.<)
Xira @ 2008-01-07 17:27
User Modify Rifle 19 <--- great for agent twinks
Selkies @ 2008-03-08 20:26
The only twink that should use scope is agent for the AIMED SHOT, crit chance isn't all that great when its at low levels becuase you have nothing else to stack it with, granted yes it DOES help tho, TIM scope is used forranged twinks that don't use AS normally so they can go 1/2 or full def and fire quickly, aka fixers who do much better at full def for obvious reasons. JAME is a great way to go for soldier/traders also especially for 45-74 twinks
GruzzyFunt @ 2008-07-02 21:32
Actually Nukerized, the Recalibrate perk from the Made perkline makes you shoot a lil faster, and it is noticable. And if it is agent vs agent, and one of them has a 275 VE, and the other has this, I think the one who can cap AS on him will wil. Also, more AS skill=faster recharge. I would use this scope for maybe a GA fixer who is under level 50, so you can go more defense. But thats just me.
livesangry @ 2009-02-05 20:16
i have this on my lvl 49 fixer :D otherwise i would hit way to slow
lpx @ 2009-12-18 03:05
where do you get this now that formans is lv100 locked? i know reets drop off notum soldier does this drop anywhere else now?
slytha @ 2010-01-12 21:19
general kronillis drops it
Xyphos @ 2010-04-18 17:30
it's always good to see old game content still worth using - I put this sucker on my 150 opifex s10 trader who has a 220 MBC for the inits boost. a few other items and she's now 1/1 on full def ^_^
Xira @ 2010-08-19 02:30
I have on my level 10 agent and I love it very much :)
ruah @ 2011-08-21 23:58
also drops from Diamondine Soldier in EFP
tazerboy @ 2011-09-02 00:25
I think it only drops from T.I.M. Now?
jgrbec @ 2014-11-04 16:11
General Kronillis Drops it... quite hard to kill, took 220 crat + shade.
houserocker @ 2019-09-30 08:47
He's much easier to kill if you bring an Engineer to rip his constant 75% reflect shield! In fact he doesn't really have any tricks besides that, compared to stunning Vivian and warping/massive nanoskill debuff Nirtox.
