This is supposed to be a feedback and suggestions thread for items that are widely regarded as bad, underpowered or otherwise underperforming by the community. Just add an item to the post that either has not been adressed yet or that you feel like could do with a different change, describe what is wrong with the weapon and how you would go about changing it. Just to start it off:
- The Maggie. The issue with the Maggie is a rather easy one: It does not do enough damage after the nerf. Even if all projectiles hit you are only looking at about 1300ish damage per shot which isn’t particularily great. Chances are, you are gonna miss a bunch of your bullets too, due to the spread. I suggest the base damage to be raised from about 215x6 to 350x6 which would grant you about 2100 damage if all projectiles hit. This would put it about on par with the Duc at close ranges but not quite outperform pistols like the Unforgiven or the Kings/Queens Call for mid-to long range crits. Please, it’s just a shame that what used to be the best Jakobs Pistol in Borderlands 2 has become the worst one in Borderlands 3.
- Malak’s Bane: It uses too much ammo, particularily in shotgun mode. Reduce the ammo cost in Sniper mode to 1 and maybe make the shotgun fire mode actually draw from the Shotgun ammo pool rather than just deleting all of your sniper ammo in seconds.
- The Lob: Haven’t found one myself but I’ve heard from reliable sources (and I would indeed consider Joltzdude reliable) that it is currently bugged and does barely any damage, far less than is listed on the item card. Might wanna look into that one.
