I just finished the story at level 43, and I left behind a slew of side quests that I’d like to go back to. I just want to verify a few things:
Is Mayhem mode the only way to set the game in a way that all areas scale to my current level? (I only ask this because when I went back to Pandora in normal mode , the starting enemies were still level 3). Basically, I want to fully explore all the areas I missed, and get XP that scales to my level.
If that pink bar above my XP bar fills, will I jump into Mayhem 2 automatically, or do I still have to change it in my menu?
If I stay on Mayhem 1, will enemies continue to scale with me until I reach the level cap anyway (not the mayhem levels, just my current character level)?
Is there anything inherently better about a Mayhem level gun compared to the normal ones? For instance, if I have a normal weapon that does 500 damage, and a gun at Mayhem 2 that does 400, does the normal one still do better damage (everything else being equal). I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t some hidden math in the Mayhem guns that I wasn’t factoring in.
