See, BL1 I have gotten too used to Support Gunner. My squad never runs out of ammo.

On this? I'm having to be super mindful as ammo seems much rarer. I have had a few fights where I PUNCH IT.

Launchers are damn fun. I like the variety in them as well - I've found one that has a mortar cannon attachment, one with homing rockets, and one that basically turns me into a GDI Titan.

Also now have the Siren perk that means after I COME ON AND SLAM I do 200% melee damage with a range increase of 75%. I PUNCH IT.

I have yet to find a rocket launcher that had any proper damage to it. Most mobs just shrug off a direct hit which seems Crazy.

Agreed, I shot a Cyclone with my Big Boy Rocket and it did about half HP.

Shotguns feel a lot more satisfying. I like the variety with them as well - I have a Maliwan with two modes that can flush enemies out of cover.

I expect when we get Torgue rocket launchers we will have SOME F*CKING REALLY BIG EXPLOSIONS.

Is it just me or does it seem to be planet/zone related where and when new gun brands appear?

I've just landed on Promethea and haven't been able to do much there, yet - life commitments and work and yeah, alas, doing a thing called being an adult. I probably should have scheduled a short vacation from work to play more, but whatcha gonna do? Am I right my productive, tax paying, living a healthy, balanced life forum members?. Hope to set aside some more play in the evening sometime Wednesday night or Thursday night, and then a big chunk on the weekend.

On Pandora, I've played with guns from the following manufacturers:

- Hyperion (love the shield)
- Maliwan (the one I was rocking could switch between corrosive and shock damage)
- Teidore (got one that did the standard - throw at enemy like a grenade when you reload)
- Vladof (was rocking the auto pistol with double barrel option and was melting but burned through ammo so fast)
- Jakobs (meh, not a huge fan of Jakobs, got a six shooter gifted to me)
- Children of the Vault (aka COV - meh, same as the bandit type in BL2, what I've played with, has been - meh)

I really want to rock with a Torgue. I want to see what they've done with that brand in BL3. Also, I guess you can 'tag' enemies with Dahl weapons. I haven't played with those yet.

Oh I'd say the COV guns have been my favorites. They're basically LMGs. Considering how much shield and health even basic baddies habe, a very large clip is perfect for me.

I've recently found a gatlin version with radiation damage that murders everything.

The cool thing with playing as FL4K is your pet will find weapons chests for you. I pulled up to a hilly, rocky area in The Droughts on Pandora with my vehicle. My pet digistructed on the rocks just above me and FL4K said something to the effect - 'good beast, I see you like treasure to'. So I jumped/mantled up and found the chest that I would otherwise not have found.

Also, the first time I saw my pet pick up a barrel (shock, corrosive, etc.) and throw it at a group of enemies I jumped out off my couch and yelled 'fuck yeah!' - - - I was not expecting the pet to do that. Posted Image

Ran into my first major bug. Got to Eden-6 and i have no in game sound other than my weapon firing and my character grunting when i jump. It started when getting the mission and i can see someone on my echo but there was no sound.

I've tried quitting/restarting. Even did a couple side quests hoping it would fix but so far no good. Apparently i'm not the only one with the issue, and Eden-6 is the worst. I'm gonna go back and do some stuff i'd skipped on the first few areas. Might try and power through tomorrow.

Le sigh...

If there's one thing above all others that pisses me off about BL3 it's that there's no fucking vendor machines or quick travel points anywhere. What the hell am I supposed to do with all the guns and equipment that's dropping?

Spoiler


Thankfully it's Slab time, slabs. Cooking up pizzas was a fun mission, too.

Also a few bugbears about the game:

The lack of vendors is super noticeable. Quite why only having one at the end of a major map is the design choice they went for, I do not know.

On the subject of shit design choices, whoever made it so that you can take damage in FFYL mode can suck a chode. There have been several instances where I'm down. being picked up by our Moze, only for him to be blasted away, for me to then take some form of bullet to the face whilst I still have 70% or so FFYL bar, and then die from said shot.

Thankfully as a brawl siren I can sort of mitigate that but...

So. Mayhem mode, level 1.

I am a Brawl Siren. I am tanky, I have 6k shield and almost as much health. And by fuck am I thankful for Guardian Angel because the amount of damage enemies do in Mayhem is dumb.

My Moze player is re-speccing and just getting rid of mech entirely because it's no longer useful in the slightest.

However we did have like six legendary drops yesterday.
