I’ve started 3 new characters in the remaster, and I’m both happy and confused by the starter loot.
The bladed pistol (I forget it’s name and I’m not at my console right now) is pretty awesome as a melee weapon, 500% boost for melee is great.
My only problem is BL1 doesn’t have a stash until Moxxie’s Underdome, and I don’t want to trigger that right away, so I’ve got to keep carrying this weapon even when the base damage is underpowered. I want to keep it for the occasional melee needs, but I’m just using up an inventory slot for something I don’t do often. But 500% buff though.
The 2nd gift weapon is interesting. Two characters have gotten the Hive launcher. Lilith was one, and my Sirens use rocket launchers never, so kinda useless.
The other gift weapon has been the new Baha shotgun. Pretty useful piece of gear for the first 5-6 levels.
Overall pretty good starters, just wish I had a place to stash 'em.
