Just to preface this, this isn’t a “How do I UVHM” topic, there are many topics and youtube videos about that.
Been playing BL2 for awhile now and finally made it to UVHM. I went from putting down the Warrior without much difficulty to dying to the first set of Bullymongs you run into in the game. It wasn’t pretty. So I went around on the internet, found a bunch of tips and now I’m getting further into it. At 54 and struggling, but I’m making progress.
The main question I have here is this. Every guide, how to topic and video I’ve seen says to use elemental weaponry and to stop using non-elemental weaponry because elemental weaponry “scales better”, with little more explanation then that. I understand what that statement means in general, that the gap between elemental and non-elemental weaponry will get bigger and bigger as I get higher level and get higher level guns. What I don’t get is, even if elemental weaponry scales better, if I’m not actively spec’ing for increased elemental damage, is elemental weaponry still better then non-elemental?
Currently I’m fooling around as an OC/BFF Gaige, spec’d as such
In NVM and TVHM I mostly just ran around with Jakobs guns and blew everything’s head up with Anarchy stacked. Between the sheer damage and Blood Soaked Shields with a Turtle Shield, everything else died and I was basically invincible. Now that this isn’t working, so I’m trying to swap to using Elemental guns to see if that helps, but will that matter without going down Little Big Trouble far enough to get Wires Don’t Talk and other elemental damage boosting things? or is there some other mod that just makes elemental superior?
