Want purple and orange items without having to kill a single enemy? Once you get to "New Haven," head to the save/transport post by "Scooter" and save your game. Then, there are two red chests and three silver chest in town; four of them on rooftops and one that the claptrap rescue opens for you. Simply loot them all, keep what you want, sell what you don't want, and then save your game. Log off, then log back in to repeat the process. Check all the vending machines each time as they will offer great items as well. Th following is a rundown of the loot route from at the save/transport post near Scooter:
Red Chest #1 On the roof of the building directly right of the save post. Head to the side with the yellow barrel, jump few times and you are there.
Silver Chest #1 From the save post, turn directly left and go up the stairs, proceed in the same direction, cross the wood plank and then jump the railing to the other building. Turn a slight right around the corner.
Red Chest #2 From Silver Chest#1...some tricky jumps, but not too hard. Just look out to the red tarp hanging over a little platform and make a running jump to land on the tarp. Then turn around till you see the Red Chest, make another jump (not too high or you will get caught on the red tarp over the chest and fall off).
Silver Chest #2 After completing the Claptrap Rescue this Silver Chest will be in a small shed across the courtyard from the Bounty Board (you just have to crouch to get in there).
Silver Chest #3 From the save post go forward and go up the stairs where the dollar sign and arrow are. Jump on top of the washing machine, then on top of the roof with the big antenna. The Silver Chest is behind it.
