This is my favorite weapon in the game so I like this change, but how about removing the nerfed crit and accuracy? It doesn’t feel like Dahl weapon anymore.

And as other note, will Wedding Invitation and Polyaimourous be able to spawn with new anointments like 300/90 or URad?

Are you guys sure about this? It was already capable of 60+M if built around :sweat_smile:

Interesting, so we’re buffing unique weapons now. I like this. Particularly happy with the Void Rift buff, as I’ve always wanted it to be good. Will the Wedding Invitation and Polyaimorous be able to keep up with the M10/11 shenanigans? I’m not sure…

The Hail could be interesting if the damage increase is enough. It still has life steal, right?

2 Likes

Yes, 3% life steal for the Hail and 5% for the Crit. Alongside the Heartbreaker, Slow Hand and Creamer, we might have a good collection of Moxxi weapons in the game now. Cheap Tips is technically a Moxxi weapon, but it doesn’t have life steal.

Wow, how do you do that?

Rakk Attack build with all splash bonuses, ASS Void Rift, 60M is against armored foes. Flesh usually hits around 30-40M

Side note, it also pulls barrels towards you

@damien_hine You can do nova spams with Fl4k or Zane in a Rakk or MNTIS build. Add splash, AOE, and cryo passives.

EDIT: Sorry @vCarpeDiemv, jinx

Nice.

Just give its former accuracy and handling back please :sob::sob::sob: bring it to how it was when Mayhem 2.0 came out.

No Polyaimorous or WE buff ? Bummer.

Thanks for the hotfix

Gonna be honest, I think that’s pretty much the opposite of what everyone wanted to happen with that weapon.

The Garcia was much more fun to use when it didn’t have the weird pump action firing thing going on.

Edit: Provided that I’m understanding this change right. So correct me if I’m wrong, but this means that the change to convert the Garcia to a pump-action weapon last year was intentional, that this change didn’t apply in multiplayer and that it does nowm right?

Agreed, this is what I miss the most. Landing a bunch of pinpoint explody crits was so satisfying.

Yes! My main saurian Maurice is back in action! “Yes! You are the heartbreaker and I am the hearttaker! They go in the bag…”

And the Kaosian is getting a buff? Nice!

I love item buffs but we need alot more imo. So many quest rewards and unique items are useless and need massive buffs.
I’m pretty sure the Agonizer 1500 hasn’t been touched since M10 along with hundreds of others. I hope they just start from the top and adjust each item so it can function properly at M10-11.

Pre-buff Void Rift shenanigans

Post-buff Void Rift shenanigans


Note, in first screenshot damage to Freddie was flesh bar, second screenshot was shield(-50%).

I’m super hoping he’s in charge of handing out the Vault Card events with the new DLC. That would be soooo goooood.

Heartbreaker and Slow Hand are both extremely good after they buffed the lifesteal on both. Think it’s 30 and 50% lifesteal respectively now? For Moze running Bloodletter just 1 shot from Slow Hand can heal 200k shields instantly so it’s basically impossible to go down while shooting if shield cap is high enough.
