I just started a new playthrough after the latest hotfixes. I’ve only played as Amara so far so I started a Fl4k. The game generally feels easier than I remember and I was kinda breezing along as Fl4k, then Gigamind dropped a Hellshock and the game was suddenly in easy mode. I then got a level 15 Breath of the Dying on Athenas, and fun as it is to watch screen fulls of Maliwan shock troopers disappear in clouds of red mist, it makes the content totally trivial.
Did the devs consider how buffing these weapons was going to affect the levelling experience?
