Bringing them up to par with the other weapons would be good. I haven't seen a whole lot of them used in videos and its difficult to see if they've been buffed sufficiently.

I adore the Helix launchers. If I could only bring one weapon from BL1 into 2, that would be it.

As for other variants, I would like to see a launcher with proximity ammo. The rounds could detonate as soon as they were within a foot or two of a surface, with a nice AoE explosion. Or napalm type elemental rounds that cover an area with flaming, acidic, or electrified goo.

A lot of people doesn't seem to know it, it's just hard to hit the crit spots with them. Also they were awesome in Borderlands but I don't mind the buff.

What I really want is a larger ammo pool though because you need a regen COM to use them as a main weapon in BL1.
You are going to have to show me some math from in-game play to prove to me they can crit.

I can record something if you want. They can at least crit on Crawmerax but I'll do some more testing though.

Yeah, I know for a fact rocket launchers ran crit, on Crawmerax at least. I did a solo run on him a couple weeks ago, and critting with a helix was the only way I could take him down. I was really surprised when I saw the red text popping up saying I had landed a critical hit.

Rocket launchers were just a weapon I used when I ran out of ammo for my other guns... I hope they make them do more damage this time around

I've completed both PT1 and PT2 in BL1 (+ craw) with rocket launchers only as Brick. It was a fun ride, and it really kicked serious ass.
So don't tell me that rocket launchersin BL1 was useless.
Sure there were some missions that required alternative thinking, but that is also a fun part of it
