I’m getting really fed up of constantly looking at numbers on item cards and using them to compare things, only to use the item and realise I’ve been lied to. The same with skills and anointments and so many other things.
Picked up this gun today, with a level 16 VH:
And noticed the underslung shotgun dealt good damage. It had double the number of projectiles of other underslung shotguns I’d found, so I thought I’d give it a go.
“6 shot” my arse, the bloody thing eats two ammo per shot. That’s three, I repeat, THREE shots, before it’s empty and I need to wait for it to regen ammo.
This is a “3 shot shotgun that deals 13x20 damage for 2 ammo”, but once again gearbox numbers decided to lie or just give bad information.
Honestly, I’d have been fine with it consuming double ammo, if it’d had a 12 round magazine for the shotgun, or I’d have been fine with it being a three shot shotgun, if the description had told me that. I just don’t like being lied to.
Anyone else feeling like this?
