When I played it back in the day to the hardest playthrough on Mordecai, I remember having many weapons to choose from, I could still die but I still had sustainment, and it was just difficult enough to be enjoyable but not op like Iron bear right now in mayhem 10. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think this was the best balance ever. TPS actually was not bad either. I can not even point out what made them balanced, those games just were. BL2 restricted you to slag, grog, everyone used the most powerful weapons like harold, bee, at some point despite their build focusing on something else. There was decent variety, but there was overlap with a lots of weapons and gear. It gets a lot of praise, but I think that’s just the sheer content and story talking. Feel free to speak your thoughts if you thought they weren’t as balanced as I remember, or if you know why they felt more balanced.
Add Pre-Sequel into the question. Was Pre-Sequel endgame balanced?
