New player here, just finished first campaign and into first dlc. Level 63. Never played the borderlands series before so please excuse me if this is a stupid question, but I’m trying to wrap my head around gun power.
I have a full set of legendaries from various things like trials and maliwan takedown and bosses from campaign, obviously for fun I tried mayhem mode of like 1-2 and while enemies are tough, it’s pretty doable .
For a laugh I went into a trial (the one with the dinosaur last boss) on mayhem 10, and of course my guns couldn’t touch their hp or even make a dent, but for some reason iron bear EASILY destroyed then. I made an iron bear build with 2 rail guns and auto bear and sat him on the last boss on mayhem 10 and he crushed it easily.
Now I loot some legendary guns from here and they are mayhem 10 legendaries and I think “sweet, mayhem 10 guns will allow me to kill mayhem 10 mobs” but nope. The guns are just as bad as my current ones, almost no difference.
How am I seeing people with mayhem 10 guns that have 10 times the damage of my mayhem 10 guns on YouTube ? Is it really because they are only 2 levels higher than me?
Any explanation to help me figure out how this system works would be appreciated and sorry for the long post!
