Soo, here’s a kind of random though. I was going around in multiple area today. Lot of weapon switching, shield switching and grenade switching going around in the inventory and then I started thinking about a game that I never even liked: Diablo 2.
That game allowed you to equip 2 different sets of gear. So instead of having to go to you menu and switch everything around you’d have a 2 sets of gear and could switch between them at the press of a button. While I don’t think this would eliminate time needed to spend switching gear around in menu it might at least ease it up a bit. I think some way of having something similar would be good.
Maybe that secondary loadout would only switch gear that is equipped on the secondary loadout, for example. What I mean is that if as Sal you want to switch between CE Monk and Leg Hoarder you’d just equip hoarder in your secondary loadout and instead of menuing in the middle of a fight (most anticlimactic choice) you press the switch button and it would only change your COM as that would be the only thing equipped on the 2nd loadout. Press again to switch back. If you had anything else on the 2nd loadout beside the COM the items in those slots would change as well. This would ease up a bit on farming requirement compared to the loadouts being completely separate from each other.
Or just have a secondary set of weapons on the 2nd loadout for effectively 8 weapon slots so you wouldn’t have to go switching elements and gear around for different areas all the time, which is the thing that this idea originated from.
