In anticipation of weapon buffs coming in the future hotfixes and patches, I’d like to post a list of some of my favorite guns that are under-performing and need a buff. There are a lot of weapons that can benefit from a buff (devoted, creeping death, ripper etc.) but I’m just going to post some weapons that I find fun to use that I personally would love to see get a buff.
Headsplosion. Awesome gun, that doesn’t see much use. Give it a little umph
Ice Queen. Speaking of snipers, Ice Queen is a pretty sweet concept for a sniper and I’d love it to be viable. Umph it.
Masterwork Crossbow. It’s a skill weapon; how about we reward the player a bit more for their skill with it? It was super exciting weapon on release but it fell off hard. I want an unseen threat tier masterwork crossbow- umph me daddy.
Bekah. Add it to the loot pool on someone or world drop. I want some Bekah love and no one would complain about moar Bekah.
Sawbar. You tried, but it’s definitely not there yet. Give it the lob treatment; reduce the range at which it activates it’s special effect and enhance the dmg on the special effect by… well, lob treatment. Give it some love.
Fastball. Not a gun but bro, it’s the fastball. I’d love to hear that POP with the insta kill dmg when on level again. So damn satisfying. Needs to happen, not even up for debate- I don’t care if it’s not mayhem viable, I want to POP some dudes while I’m lvling at least.
Hellfire SMG. I know you don’t want to just re-create old classics and want new things, but how about DOT dmg buff through the roof as tribute to BL1. It’d be sexy, don’t you think? You know you want to.
Crossroads. Just un-nerf it.
Boomer. It’s cool, give it some umph. Probably need quite a bit of umph.
Crader’s EM-P5. Excellent concept of a weapon that pairs well (thematically) with Zane. How about a little more umph?
D.N.A. You dun goofed on this one. Feels like shooting static at enemies without the shock. Where da shock at? Needs some love.
Butcher. Un-nerf it mang.
Hellwalker. Give me some pellets or something. Gun is cool, let’s step it up a notch. 25 pellet roll? I think yes.
Heart Breaker. I like the gun and I’d love to use it but it’s so weak; I don’t need a big buff to it or anything but I’d like to use it if it drops while I’m playing, you know what I’m sayin’?
Sledge’s Shotgun. Don’t really have a suggestion but it’d be kind of neat to actually be able to use it a bit more- maybe make it on par with the Garcia? Naw, I have no idea but I like sledges a lot and would like it to be more viable. Probably a shot in the dark with this one but I love the gun, I just have a hard time ever finding the opportunity to use it. Moar pellets ?
Baby Maker. Consumes too much ammo on throw and needs a dmg upgrade.
Alright, that’s what I have off the top of my head for fun guns I like using that I’d like to see made more viable. Again, this is a for fun type post in the midst of the hype for future updates in patches and hotfixes. Fun guns I’d love to see get some love <3
