I’ve recently been playing about with Mayhem modes 1-12, getting legendary loot and whatnot. But I’ve recently found out that weapons also scale in Mayhem Mode. (E.G - A M10 Lob will be stronger than a M1 Lob)
I get the feeling that they want us to slowly move up the Mayhem Mode levels, but is there any way to skip levels and quickly get powerful gear. Like, places to farm, weapons to look out for, and which level of MM to start on.
(UPDATE!) - I have recently bought the Handsome Jack DLC, and I’ve been doing the Scraptrap farm. So far, I’ve gotten 2 O.P.Q Systems, 2 grease traps, 1 Iceburger and 1 Nopewpew. All M4 level.
But now it seems I’ve hit a roadblock. I figured that since i have M4 gear, I could make the jump to a higher level. But on M6, I couldn’t even finish the Scraptrap farm. (But i did get a M6 Nopewpew) And the only two bosses I’ve found that i can farm somewhat reliably on M6 are Gigamind and Killavolt. (And i only get 2 legendaries per kill on average with many of them being either artifacts or class mods) I could barely even hurt Graveward or Traunt.
(UPDATE) - I’ve gotten past the above roadblock for now. I have gotten a M7 O.P.Q system, I’ve gotten a Monarch and I can now farm Gigamind, Traunt, Killavolt and Graveward pretty reliably on M10.
Despite that, I’m probably gonna leave the event fore the sole fact that Mayhem 2.0 seems to be broken. And not in the good way. Out of all the legendaries, only a few are viable in M10 due to the increased health, armour and shields. And the increased loot rarity doesn’t seem to be as high as M10 makes it out to be. (For a 12500% increase, I’m not seeing many extra legendaries)
Plus, for such a popular event with guns like the Yellowcake and O.P.Q. This probably won’t be the last time we see the cartel weapons.
