Is it me, or do the Mayhem 10 weapons feel like a joke? I just got back into Borderlands 3 now that a bunch of content has been added and me and my friend have grinded up to Mayhem level 10. While we are having a decent enough time farming the legendaries we want, they seem to do nothing for us. No matter what weapon i use i cant deal any damage.
I’m playing as a Level 60 Zane with Mayhem 10 gear such as the Lob, Sandhawk, Anarchy, Lucian’s Call, etc and i’m not dealing much of anything. Most shots deal about 5-6k damage. Sometimes i’ll get a crit or if i’m just stacking multiple damage bonuses i’ll get 20k. Rarely 50k, but there’s barely a shift in the enemy’s health bar.
However, the moment i pop out my clone with Double Barrel and he has the Lob or Sandhawk, it’s dealing upwards of 500-850k with an occasional 1M in damage numbers and can absolutely melt anything it looks at. Why am i not able to replicate this damage? Why do i have to rely on my action skills to get any kills rather than my own ability to shoot?
