    So...I found an orange shotgun that when reloaded is instead thrown into the air, where it flies around shooting people all by itself and then homes in on somebody and explodes. It even chases down bandit aircraft. I also have a sniper rifle that questions my morality, physical fitness, and personal hygiene whenever I shoot someone. I understand some of the endgame gripes, but...this is awesome.

    That sniper sounds great! I got that shotgun, didn't like it much--leaves you too exposed while it searches for its targets.

    Me and Mildred tried to take on Hyperius the Invincible today (or whatever his name is...). It didn't go well! Even after she duped me her ridiculous gear, we could barely get a dent in him. So we're looking to recruit help to take him down! Also, we need to know how his resistance works--I'm sure I could find the answer if I googled it, but I'd rather hear it from someone here... or I'll google it eventually.


    Edit: oh, also, am I the only one who's XMB--massages especially--takes RIDICULOUSLY long to load? Only difference between last time I used it and now is that I downloaded the Store update--don't know if that's the cause. Whenever I try to send someone a message, it takes anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes for the message window to appear. Sometimes it takes a while to exit the XMB too. I've never had it happen before.

    Game isn't worth playing. The loot system is just too unfair to warrant playing. Buyers remorse of the year.

    If anybody around level 22 wants to play, add me on Steam: ChizFreak

    I'm a Bloodshed-based Zero. But I can change to sniping if necessary.

    I'm probably sticking my foot in something, but what is the gripe about the loot system -- low drop rate? I think this is balanced out by the ability to swap gear between your players via claptrap's stash. I actually have a set of 4 oranges level 5-10 that I transition to each new player I start as their jumpstart kit, including a level 4 infinite shot pistol that is great for a bunch of low level challenges (shooting bullymong projectiles, etc). Each of those items was originally found by a different character on a different playthrough, but now all benefit.

    Well said.

    I can't live with the shame anymore, so must confess....

    Was co-oping terra with blaine... Well we were on our way to co-op terra & i was not expecting terra to be waiting for us. So I jump down the hole and run towards the horn and terra pops up behind me.... I'm like oh **** I'm on the wrong side of terra.... Next thing I know I'm flying of the cliff. Good thing Blaine was able to stay alive till I got back into the fight.

    So now you know my secret shame.

    Swapping oranges still doesn't make up for the lost funfactor when it comes to loot, and they screwed over the game by making it so that you certain bosses were pre-disposed to certain drops. So instead of just playing the game, people farm certain enemies over and over, then move to the next one, rinse and repeat. Also, you can't defend the drops from Terra and The Warrior. You just can't.

    How does the level dynamic work? Do I need to be the level of the weapons I'm being given?

    To be able to use it, yes. If you want I could power level you up to 50. I'm taking the SATs tomorrow and then I need to work, so I won't be home until at least 7 EST.

    That's fine there's no rush. And I don't need to be power-leveled I just wanted the information.

    My GT is DiogenesSinope7, BTW.

    Yeh, you dont like this game no one cares! If you hate BL so much why the hell would you message on the 'Official Borderlands 2 Thread' oh an' a loot generation system that can spawn a million different version of one weapon that manage to keep the people playing even after completing the game multiple times is not realy a 'lost funfactor'....

    p.s. to y'all that play BL on ps3 im looking for the legendary axton head that drops from vermius

    Just saying, it could be done in splitscreen in both the first and second games, making it essentially a smaller bank.
