Lootology 101 BL1 (Original and Remaster) Edition

This is intended to be a master guide list for the various guides to Borderlands 1 loot (mainly gear and weapons). Some of these have been ported over from the original Gearbox forums, and some are still in the murky depths of the Wayback Machine. If you have a thread that you would like to see listed here, post below.

Ta muchly!

I would also like to thank @Scottes, @Szyslak, @ense7en, @U1849KA, and many other old forums members for being our testers way back in the day.

Speaking of that, I did find many of the tests that I did back in the day on the original Borderlands 1.

Goddam I was looking for some of these :acmaffirmative:

I tried looking through the wayback machine myself for a few lost threads but I didn’t have the patience to wrap my head around that thing.
