Borderlands 3 Gun & Stats

Ever had that moment when you have a gun you really like the way it looks but you cant really use cause its stats are terrible compared to that ugly hyperion puffer fish pistol?

I would love it if you could loot for weapon stats rather then loot for guns. That way you can have a cool looking weapon that still does the job.

But stats are still tied to their brands and weapon type. So a jacobs pistol stat mod that you found cant be attatched to a hyperion weapon, or a jacobs shotgun. Only to a jacobs pistol of your choice.

Or a weapon building system. Somethin!
