Hello there everyone,
so me and my friends just completed our first playthrough and took a glance at the Mayhem Mode. We’ve enabled Mayhem 1 just to try it out while starting a DLC. We didn’t feel very comfortable so we rolled back to 0, and i was kinda sad cause i had already bought a Mayhem 1 gun from the vendor, thinking i wouldn’t be able to use it, like in BL2 with the OP system.
Well well was i wrong… and deeply disappointed. So tell me if i’m wrong again but, basically you could get into Mayhem 10, buy all your gear, roll back to where you left off and be kind of a god, disrupting your whole experience?
Many of you might say “Well yeah, but what would be the point of that?”, and i’d agree. Point is, being able to enable the hardest difficulty right off the bat will not only shorten the lifespan of the game by A LOT, but it would also deprive you of any sense of progression through those difficulties.
Am i missing something?
Furthermore, if i’d want to force myself into some sort of self-made progression system through the Mayhem’s difficulties, how would i choose the right moment to switch to the next tier, given that you have no test to pass like the Digistruct Peak was in BL2?
