So I been playing borderlands 2 & the presequel for a while and as time passes by, I see nothing but people running only gunzerkers in bl2 or the lawbringer in TPS. For me personally this gets old fast and ruins the depth of the game. I know a lot of people love to use very porwerful characters but for us hardcore players this ruins our enjoyment of the game. Gunzerkers can literally stand infron of a ultimate badass and just dish out damage. While in TPS, nisha can literally shoot to heal, tombstone, and dish out absurd amounts of damage. Leaving other characters to be left in the dark. I play the commando in bl2 and every time its a gunzerker using the pimpernel and Ahab combination. I barely see anyone play zero or axton. Does this bother anyone else? Lmk
I don’t play with random players, so no. That’s just me though. I can see it being very irritating though - I will admit to getting board with Sal’s “gunzerk for 60 minutes” game-play, so I usually do something else. Or I’ll play Sal, but try out different weapon combos to make life more interesting.
I suppose you could ask people joining your game if they have a different character they can use? I’m sure some of them will be like, “We’ll I’ve got two other Gunzerkers I use as mules…”
I prefer solo play. When I co-op, it’s only with my daughter. I may do more co-op when I get around to moving to XBone, but I really enjoy overcoming the challenge on my own, and I don’t have much faith in randos.
I also only do solo, but that is because I can’t stand random people coming in and messing with my quests.
I played Zer0 exclusively, until recently when I started Gaige while playing with my wife.
I used to have friends that played, but they moved onto other things. I play on Xbox 360, I’d probably gladly play with someone once I trusted them. So far I’d play with everyone in this thread.
Is it sad that I am more protective of my game, than I was of myself when I was doing online/Tinder dating when I was single?
That just made me chuckle. Maybe I’ll get a mic one of these days and co-op with you. Is your Zero OP8?
I find gunzerkers very boring. Just point gunzerk and keep on shooting. Minimal skill is required to play him. I use to love him for that reason.
I really enjoy playing with other competent players, it gives borderlands more depth to its gameplay than meets the eye. But randos really hinder my enjoyment with the game, especially when fighting raid bosses.
In the last 5 games I’ve joined there hasn’t been a single Salvador, haha. I’ve seen 2 Kriegs, 3 Gaiges, 2 Axtons, and 1 Maya. So no Zeros.
Same kind of thing with TPS. Last 4 games I played were 4 Clap-Traps, 2 Aurelias, 3 Handsome Jacks, 2 Athenas, and 1 Wilhelm. Nisha is the only person I haven’t partnered up with.
Maybe XBox One just has different mind sets.
I don’t care who my co op partners play as, as long as they don’t mod.
I’ve played with the legend him self chuck80, the creator of deputy sal, he was playing as Maya. I used to play sal a lot but now I go between sal,axton,Maya,and kreig. I don’t play with randoms tho. If I wasn’t on ps3 I’d gladly co op with a lot of the forum memebers.
Personally for me i see nothing but gunzerkers on the ps4 and it really gets old after constant zerkers just using the ahab pimp combination. Literally one shotting everything. It ruins the enjoyment of overpower levels. Its something I have a beef against.
That would get tiresome. I’ve had some really good groups lately on BL2. I’ve only had one game where it was just a sprint for loot. Everyone else only takes what they need. If they don’t want the Legendary they leave it.
In TPS it’s a very different story. If you help someone kill the Sentinel then they kick you as soon as you defeat it. That’s enfuriating! It’s happened every time! Which is like 7. Now I won’t do the Sentinel with people. I always give priority loot to the host. Once they’ve scavenged through it, then I’ll pick through the remains.
Yeah, I’m a fellow Axton player myself and I play on the PS4 and I use to love playing co-op even with randoms on OP levels but the amount of Sal’s that I come across using that Pimpernel+Ahab combination, Double Norfleets or have a ridiculous BAR number and do tons of damage, completely ruin the fun and have forced me to start playing solo.
Nisha I have never really seen as much of a problem. Compared to Sal, she is a lot more likely to go down and her damage isn’t as high as Sal’s. I can still enjoy myself with Nisha(s) in a room. If anything, I see more Jack players on TPS than Nisha.
Personally, I never play with randoms…always people from my friend list (which also means that I play solo a lot )
And so far, everyone has been well-behaved
No ninja-loot, no Shamfleet, No pimp/RL trick
Might change when I move to PS4 or PC
Does that mean you’re on 360/XB1? Because I know this guy…
I’m on PS3
The console is dead though, I will have to move on… Haven’t decided yet if I join the “PC gaming master race”
Oh.now ps3 isn’t dead.
I still have to deal with it till I save enough for a car and a new system lol
Same boat here buddy… Newborn babies are expensive, so the new shiny gaming engine will have to wait
If only you played op8 more or I had good op2 gear. I’m about to acquire a lot of new gear if you decide to take other characters to op8, but that’s off topic.
