    Ultimate mode is so much fun, but loot drops are STILL shite. Haven't even had a purple drop yet, and in fact I've only found one purple up until level 54, and that was in a chest. Why are they so reluctant to give us good stuff? Farming loot midgets is the new way to get the good stuff. Would be great if you could find this stuff without having to use an exploit.

    Considering loot is such a huge part of the game they've got something wrong if I've gone from 50 to 54 and only found two or three things that weren't vendor trash.

    Play Borderlands 1, the loot system is much more satisfying, You are rewarded with nice gear just for playing the game! What a shocker!

    I'm not refarming my Level 50 gear, I can't stomach it. I'll bump old gear to 61 and I'll find the pearls myself.

    I've got up to level 53, but already found an orange off one of the assassins, a couple of e-tech's, and some purples.

    You must all be doing it wrong! ;~)

    Scummy of them to make you pay for a level cap upgrade. But I'm going to do it anyway, and I'll hate myself for it.

    @ecureuil I think they could tweak it to make them a bit more common once you reach the higher levels. I end up relying on keys to top up the quality of my weapons (lv 47)

    @PearOfAnguish in theory, though having got over 120 hours out of the game with no DLC I think I've easily got my money's worth. Plus it's free if you have the season pass.

    Yes it is free with the season pass, but I don't have that and it isn't worth me buying it now. Hopefully the remaining DLC I don't have will be on sale at some point.

    @PearOfAnguish I expect some of it will be in the Steam summer sale.
  • Deleted user 4 April 2013 16:47:33
    @RobTheBuilder you've played 120 hours and never purchased the dlc? You obviously love it, how come no dlc? The first two are fantastic.

    What's wrong with Hammerlock's? I haven't bought it yet, but I probably will. I didn't get the season pass so I'm getting them individually.

    They just need to make the Chests and Vending machines contain better stuff. No wonder the resistance were losing so badly if they had been using the underlevelled crappy greens/whites in the machines.

    @ecureuil

    It's not terrible, just not as good the first two.

    The raid boss was a cheap cunt as well.

    @Pepsipop well, I did every mission on first play through, and still only on my second play through now!

    Plus I'm not in work at the moment so trying to save money for moving to next job!

    @jambii267 only the buy of the day are ever worth having.

    I have found the chests to be much less useful than in the first game. Maybe one in every 20 has something worth keeping, and maybe 1 in 50 has anything superb
  • Deleted user 4 April 2013 16:58:47
    @ecureuil not as interesting characters, not as funny, has some incredibly annoying enemy types. Still fun just nothing when compared to the first two.

    I've been really enjoying getting back into this and playing through the Torgue dlc but I just got to the Piston Blimp battle and it's incredibly annoying. I'm a level 50 Soldier but my turrets have decided that it's not an enemy so wont shoot it and everytime I die it get's all it's shields and health back. I tried using the suggested turrets but got blown up almost instantly. Does any one have any tips?

    Hammelock's is bloody tough!

    Great location, though
  • Deleted user 4 April 2013 17:08:09
    @MatMan562 just stay in the tunnel you start in, you don't take any damage.

    @MatMan562

    I find Hyperion shot guns the best for pistons blimp. Other than that just hide and pop out to do damage.

    Ahh, ok, thanks for that! Sounds like it'll take awhile but at least I'll be able to do it.

    It doesn't take long, I just used average sniper rifle at the exit of tunnel then every time it attacks just pop back in.

    I had a purple corrosive dahl sniper first time I fought him. Suffice to say it didn't last long.

    Made a start on UVHM, Bee + a purple slag SMG are making a good job of tearing the badguys a new one. It must be an ammo spongefest without a Bee.

    Boom-boom dropped a homing sticky bonus package for me, so no complaints on drop rate from me. I'll have to level my Zero upto 50 and pass it on, when my Gaige is maxed. Dropping the decoy along with a bonus package and running like hell FTW.

    So for those of you who've played with all 5 characters - which is considered to be the best/most fun?

    I've only played as Zero and Axton and definitely prefer the former. While Axton's action skill is always good value, he just feels a bit... dull.

    I've tried all 5, but not maxed them all (by a long way with some). I'd rate them
    1 Gaige, lvl 51 started her after completing PT1 with Axton. I'm normally a cautious, hang back and snipe type in FPS games, which is how I played Axton. Gaige forced me to get stuck in, Rambo style. An awesome crowd control character, not so great against big bads.

    2 Maya, only into the teens with her and she's my most recently started toon. The big thing with Maya is, I still feel SMGs are the most useful guns and one of her class mods (Cat, I think) give some pretty big bonuses to SMG damage.

    3 Axton, into the 40s, had more fun with him in PT 2.

    4 Zero, just doesn't gel with me, probably after playing Gaige. In the 20s with him, I'll give him more time and try speccing for Mellee (that type of build sticks in my craw, with there being no mellee loot though). As I say above though, decoy+bonus package=cowardly chaos.

    5 Sal, only at 6 so don't take this review too seriously. Only just started with the gunzerking, but it just always seemed to be one gun reloading while the other was firing, which felt frustrating.

    @themanfromdelmonte - thanks. I know that people really do rate Gaige.

    My Zero is really a sniper/critical hit build, which completely suits my preferred style of play (why I never played as Mordacai in BL1 is beyond me).

    Might give Maya a go once I get Zero to lvl50 (currently at 46)
