      I tried farming in the boss arena near the Desert Housing Complex for about 10 minutes with max Drop Rate chips at level 28 and didn't get a single Machine Arm. I did get 4 Machine Torsos, 3 Machine Legs, and 4 Machine Cores though.

        Route C (as 9S): Machine Arm Drop (in Abandoned Factory: Underground Area) from Cult Machines. Required 80%+ Drop Rate Up Chip

          You can farm machine parts by soing the Parade Escort quest and making sure to fail it, this will allow you to consciously spawn the higher level enemies that reliably drop limbs

            While working my way through the lower factory levels as 9S in route C to collect the locked chests I got over a dozen machine arms with 50% drop up. I haven't tested this enough but this might be a good place to farm for arms.

              another great spot to farm would be in the White City that Adam built. the boss area becomes an endless wave of small and flying machine.
