Default Gun crafting...

this thread is for discussing ALL weapon customization, and any and all possible crafting ideas.

I have retired from the subject until further notice... and honestly you should too... Go look at BL2 previews...

I specifically avoided this thread for a long time because i didnt want to fan the flames for borderlands 2. Im happy with the way it has shaped up and am not disappointed at all in what it has turned out to be as far as i can tell.

Gun crafting could realistically work in the borderlands universe. But honestly it belongs in "borderworlds"
thats it in a nutshell... if you want crafting in borderlands step back and look how much emphasis Gearbox places on not removing the player from the action... then stop and think about how your supposed to build a gun while getting shot at...

i have given an absurd amount of thought towards guncrafting... having been mulling it over for the last 3 years...and im certain it is very much possible to implement a gun crafting system that doesnt "detract" from the game in the way 99% of people who post contrary to the subject believe it would... i have largely kept the ideas to myself as much as i can stand... so as not to pollute the thought pool and hopefully garner perspectives i had not considered..

that said heres the most specifics i have posted to date if your interested:link please keep in mind that this subject has been met with more than a little animosity over the years... if i come across as arrogant i was exasperated so forgive my ego

If they can fix duping, then a definite no to crafting. Last thing I want is for every character to have the same weapons at the endgame.

I think it would kill the whole shooting and looting from Borderlands 1.

i feel the same way man... i tend to be creative in meaningless mediums so i'm all for it. and implementation would have to be carefull to say the least. IF it could work theres a LOT of hashing out and opinions to be considered so this is by no means a one way or the other kinda thread... its WAAAAY open ended

but im right there with you in the either way boat tbh

I didn't vote cuz I'm odd. I just think that the stocks and scopes should be changeable with the exception of legendary parts causations. Seeing as those two parts are wholely preference and not real functionality. Other than that, I'd not want any craftsmanship on the user's behalf to be honest.

I thought it was fine as it was and being able to craft guns beats the looting and ruins the surprise of finding that gun you've been looking for.

Now if you'd said let us trade guns with each other.....
