Weapon help please

What is the best smg at op levels apart from the sand hawk as I’ve already done the hermit mission at lvl 72 so not much use at op5.
One that is farmable please

You can always reset UVHM and get it again. The good and bad touch are good, Lascaux is alright. The Crit is alright other than the fact that it drops out of you hands once in a while. The Tattler is supposed to be one of the highest dps for an smg also. Plasma Casters are some of my favorite though. Preferably Maliwan and Hyperion plasma casters. The Bitch is pretty good if you hit crits, and/or if you go down a lot.

Easily accessible:
Good Touch (fire), Bad Touch (corrosive), Lascaux (non-elemental)

Farmable, if you have roughly twelve eternities:
Bitch, Emperor

To be honest, the Sandhawk is so good, it’s worth the resets and dashboard farming to at least get a shock variant for the Peak. It is also very likely that it will be faster to reset and do the dashboard farming required to get one than it would be to farm an Emperor or Bitch in shock.

This is from someone whose favorite gun in the entire game is the Emperor. I’m now over 50 Southpaw runs and at least 15 Peak runs at OP8 without seeing an on-level Emperor drop, and in all of my time playing this game, I have never caught an elemental Bitch, despite farming BNK3R hundreds of times just for the fun of it.

The Bitch is probably the best “farmable” SMG, apart from the Sand Hawk, but getting BNK3R to actually drop it can be a…well…Bitch.

I’m playing as gaige and have skilled for anarchy so the bitch and getting crits with over 100 stacks is almost impossible, but I’ve never tried the plasma casters to be honest all I do is sell em, is their a particular one you would recommend?

Thanks I’ll look at that, does the rest do anything to your level or does it just reset the missions back to the start of uvhm ?

Resetting UVHM just resets the missions back to the beginning of UVHM, it has no impact on your character’s level.

Maliwan or Hyperion Brand Plasma Casters are what you would want.

Oh great then I can reset and get myself an op sand hawk yaaaaa :grinning:

Oh and can you still do the reset at op8 ? Hope so coz its sand hawk time if I can

Yes, you can reset even at OP8. Just make sure you accept the mission (Whoops) that rewards the Sand Hawk at OP8 and not a lower level.

I thought I was unlucky, even I have had elemental bitches fire and corrosive though I was farming for the sham

Ok thanks I’ll do just that, probably spend more time down and dead than alive but the sand hawk is worth the effort
Sorry another question, can you reset more than once as long as you complete uvhm story mode ?

I am part way through UHVM at 57, and I have the option to Reset, haven’t even got Sanctuary to fly off yet, so you don’t have to finish the story to reset, useful if you want to farm for different variants to the same weapon that comes early in a DLC story mission.
