Default What are Good Weapons for Axton

and how does everyone find them. Currently I'm level 26 and having an incredibly difficult time in lynchwood managing to kill the high hp enemies. The Lab Rats in particular are taking almost all of my ammo just to kill 4 of them. I know it's not endgame but where the heck did you find good guns at this stage of the game? All the vendor items are still level 22-23 and do horrible damage and the guns I'm using now just aren't cutting it either. It's very frustrating using level 18-19 weapons because the RNG generator has decided I don't deserve decent one's for 7-8 levels now.

I must be lucky then.

Same level as you, and I just found a few great purple weapons from the vendor by Crimson HQ's. Other than the few purples I just bought, most weapons from drops and vendors have been bad. Sometimes I have to keep weapons for 5+ levels, which sounds like the same problem you're having.

You could farm chests. In the highlands there is a chest just outside of town under the bridge on a scaffold. Might be lower level than what you are looking for, can't remember exactly.

Just check YT for good farming spots and grind out some decent weps. Also, check every gun vending machine, you never know what you might find.

Good guns? Any of em. Unlike in BL1, each class in BL2 doesn't really have a specialization in certain weapon types. Sure Zero does snipers, but none of the other classes have such massive preference to certain weapon types.

I got a bandit gun from the quest Loggins gives (friendly buzzard pilot in the Dust) it is just like the glorious havoc from BL1 so it is BADASS. You may need to just kill a bunch of bandits to get it though. I can't remember the name of it but it looks a lot like the havoc.

Don't use vendor weapons. They are crap most of the time.

Personally I find myself using shotguns and snipers most of the time when I play with Axton. This is kinda unusual for me because in BL1 I never used that much shotguns at all. While here in BL2 I can say that my primary weapon is a shotgun oO

Every so often you will find a purple item in a vending machine.. quite often you will find a blue item so yes they are useful to look at.. just look at the deal of the day as its the best item in the shop.

As for what weapon to use.. try torque ars and pistols and rocket launchers. Also keep a good shotty handy as well as a sniper rifle preferably one with acid damage. Oh and for goodness sakes dont forget nades nades and more nades...

Try Marmaril farming in Sanctuary. He can give some surprisingly good gear sometimes!
Of course, this is assuming you're playing on PS3. I hear that the spawn rate for him is uber low on PC...

Vendor weapons are spawned the same way most drops are. The only difference is you see more weapons drop than you normally look at vendor items, which increases the chances of finding a good item.

Most vendor items are horrible, but, really, most weapons gained in any possible way are horrible. It isn't a vendor specific thing.
