I’ve always wondered, “With all these different guns and customization parts WHY CAN’T WE CREATE OUR OWN GUNS?!”
I’ve put well over 200 hours in this game, and while having a list and bank full of legendaries is cool and all, being able to create your own weapon would be that much more fun for me.
Rerolls and tweaking weapons is nothing new in dungeon crawlers or looters such as Diablo and Path of Exile, but why hasn’t it been introduced in Borderlands, the original Loot and Shoot?
The concept is quite simple, have a gun smith in Sancturary where he can melt down pieces of weapons into materials needed to make your own gun. Created guns can have their own flavor text with modifiers being added can be either randomly generated, or rerolled into choice based on materials given. For instance
Increase Melee damage - Materials required:
10x’s Legendary’s with Anointed “Melee Damage”
10x’s Epic “Increase melee Damage”
15x materials Legendary or lower
These of course aren’t set in stone numbers, but you get the idea. With enough farming and enough time put into the game you can make your ultimate gun built for your build specifically.
Of course the Gunsmith can be extended to other things besides guns such as shields or grenade mods. Hell even a Eridian Smelter that can reroll your favorite relic mods. But regardless a gun smith I feel would step this game into the right direction.
So what do you guys think?
