I wanted to start a new thread for discussion of all of our personal favorite “off-meta” or underrated weapons in BL3. By “off-meta” and/or underrated, what I mean is that you won’t see many people using the weapon in common builds, and the weapon does not appear in the TG listing, even though it might appear in the “Second Cut” list.
BL3 has gotten a little bit stale for a lot of the hardcore playerbase, and so this is the time to try out weapons that are not super-commonly used in the meta builds for that particular VH. The goal of this thread is to help folks discover new weapons and/or combinations to try.
Attn Mods - there is already a thread for “underrated weapons,” but it has not had activity in more than a year, so I started a new topic instead of necro’ing the old one.
Post your choices here, indicating any or all of the following (among anything else you want to explain about your pick):
- Weapon name
- If the weapon requires certain prefixes/anointments to be effective, list the prefixes or anointments needed
- Vault Hunter/s on which your weapon excels
- Why the weapon is good
- Why the weapon is off-meta or underrated
Let’s discuss and discover some new weapons and combinations!
