I have a pretty potato PC for running BL3. For some areas I’m at a constant 15-10 FPS with frequent frame drops exceeding 4 seconds. Needless to say, precision aiming is just about impossible in these scenarios.
Luckily, I found a Tediore SMG with turret throw, a Torgue AR flamethrower, and a torgue shotgun with increased splash radius. I’m getting by with these weapons for now thankfully, but it certainly is a challenge to play a crit based character under these conditions. I thought about switching to a pet build until some sort of optimization patch comes, but my pet gets wrecked by AOE ground effects like lava pools, and if I don’t deal enough damage to kill enemies, I can’t heal it. I could always try the Jabber and see what happens, but without a pet to tank for me, I would get killed during the frame drops when my character is a sitting duck for 4 seconds.
For anyone having performance issues with BL3, how are you adjusting? Do you have any strategies or tips?
