To anyone who thinks being able to turn off the modifiers while still getting the increased loot bonus would be “cheating” or anything of the sort. Kindly rethink. It’s a video game. You’re meant to have fun. And not everyone’s idea of fun is the same.
Eventually, mods are gonna get made for Borderlands 3 that will allow people to turn the game into their perfect version of it. But that’s not a reason for Gearbox not to move in this direction too. If the player base is making mods to give people more options, then that means it’s something that the player-base wants, and Gearbox should move to this end.
