I’m currently a lvl 53 mech on UVHM (just reached sanctuary) and decided because i’ve ran through this game 1001 times before, to only equip green gear and weapons until the end. No idea if it’s because it was only the Southern Shelf and the bandit camp before reaching Sanctuary, but it’s actually quite doable thus far.
Heck yeah, especially at the ‘end’ game. My rules are mostly to “force” me into using the highest possible variety (for better or worse) of weapons and gear in the game. Between this, and using the OP levels to buff weak weapons, nerf overpowered weapons, and allow me to scale enemy difficulty on the fly, I think I’m getting the richest experience the game has to offer.
