Feeling a little excluded just because of my weapon preference

Jacobs have been my go to weapons throughout this whole playthrough. Normally I’d find something that looks decent, but doesn’t end up performing as well as the Jacobs I was using.

Yes you need to get crits, but they’re insanely strong when you do. My revolver is often one shotting maliwan heavies with a crit to their power core and the gun is mid 30s against lvl 40+ enemies.

Edit: oh and by the way the revolver is non-elemental.

What did I walk into…Should have just kept this door shut

In BL3, Vladof have sniper rifles with a secondary fire that is a Shotgun.

You CAN use Vladof shotguns.

I have a level 13 Torque Masher in my inventory right now.

It is Blue Rarity, Corrosive element, 37x5 damage, and fires five 37 damage projectiles as a single grenade like projectile that sticks to the target and explodes a short while after.

It’s a non-traditional Masher, but it’s a Torque Masher nonetheless.

EDIT: @sehenry10 tagging you since you also mentioned having not seen an Elemental Masher in BL3 yet.

Wow, dude I can get you are upset that elemental revolvers are not part of the games core loot pool, but what do you think this thread is going to achieve?

Accept that the Dev teams made choices over what weapon types to design parts for and try enjoy the game using alternatives until you get to endgame whet you can farm the select items included in the game that seem to match your preference, or simply play something else.

I’d love to have seen Maliwan heavy weapons so you could have awesome charged railguns or things like the BFG from doom, but I’m not gonna sit here and ignore the entire rest of the game which happens to be awesome.

Maybe in future DLC you will get your wish.

I have one of those! I got a LVL 50 Blue Rarity Torgue revolver that shots all 5 rounds at once. I’m probably gonna pass it along to my Moze, once I do my playthrough with her.

I will say that the trick revolver is probably my favoritest gun ever, solely for the reload

There’s only 1 reply option on posts as far as I can see, the one on the lower right. Where’s the other one?

Is that the unique RNG Jakobs pistol? Legit only used that for the reload animation despite having a better Masher lol

It’s a shotgun that shoots cannonballs

yes, yes it is, though to be fair, its RNGness just makes it more fun to use

Not while I have a Jakobs shot Gun thank you very much.

He’s just trolling.

How is it trolling? I stated that I understood his viewpoint and shared similar feelings regarding other neglected weapon types. I get he is bummed.

The part you quote is specifically to do with the combatative tone he took towards some early responses. Thats not really going to incite meaningful discussion…things just descend into mud slinging.

Apparently I need to post this here too:

Go easy on one another. You may not understand or agree with another user, but that’s no reason to get into an argument.

It’s not trolling; it’s endless argument about the semantics of what constitutes a Revolver as opposed to a Pistol, which were separate weapon categories in BL1 but merged in all subsequent games.

Time for all to move on, I suspect - the discussion appears to have covered all possible angles at this point.

That’s mostly on me for not being clear enough I’m not good with typing and clearly putting my thoughts out.

Oh no nothing broken I just would like BL1 styled maliwan elemental revolvers, balanced of course to be less powerful than a jakobs but with the benefit(benifit?) of extra armor damage,shields damage or flesh damage (plus those neato effects and death animations plus I love fanning the hammer on the revolvers in BL). Hope this helps.
