In comparison, BL1’s pistols compared to BL2’s are a much more diverse and deep well of styles than what the sequel has to offer. I’m not sure if I want to demand BL1 style sidearms for any sequel, as I’d rather see what they move forward into(personally something more in-depth than BL2).
I dunno, comparing BL2 Jakobs revolvers to the six shooters of Dahl, Jakobs, Maliwan, Atlas, and Tediore is comparing apples to oranges. Same goes for BL1 repeaters to BL2 Dahl, and BL1 MPistols to BL2 Vladof.
To answer your question[quote=“Adabiviak, post:5, topic:1557533”]
What about them isn’t present in BL2?
BL2 Jakobs revolvers are all fast firing and non elemental. I don’t know if I can find much more else to say other than that. At base, that is what they are. That’s ignoring they’re a blast to play with any other subjective details, but that is what they are.
BL1 revolvers do have the standard recoil and handling differences you can expect out of any other class of weapon, but in addition to that they can be elemental, shotgun spread, or your wrist-snapping pocket sniper. I know that isn’t a LOT more bullet points on the side of the box, but their overall power and diversity allows those traits to stretch a long way.
Really, I think if there’s anything that people want it’s the true power of the BL1 style revolver. It feels good and looks cool. And works. Really really well.
For repeaters and machine pistols, I prefer having multiple manufacturers with their own characteristics and takes on each weapon class instead of having one manufacturer apply their entire aesthetic on an entire subclass.
