I know its probably been said numerous times by now, but there are some extremely bizzare an just down right stupid design choices in Bl2. For players that stayed until they end of the party I’m sure Bl2 will go down as 1 of the most frustrating games in history, which brings me to my first question.
Why is Ultimate Vault hunter mode so ridiculously hard to the point that most weapons don’t deal enough damage to counteract the enemies health regeneration.? You can say you don’t have to play uvhm, but if you wanna experience the full game you were forced to play uvhm. Uvhm makes the vast majority of weapons completely useless, which brings me to weapons.
I love the vast weapon selection in the game but some are just stupid. They entire tech weapon their in trash past normal mode, they can’t crit so why don’t they do ridiculous amounts of status damage. What’s with Hyperion weapons starting off super inaccurate, that’s just bizzare, I don’t even use Hyperion snipers because of this bizzare design choice, why use a Hyperion sniper when there ate vladof snipers and jocobs… Why are cursed weapons a thing? The first time I used the bane I didn’t know wtf, why does the chullain self slag, why do certain shotguns shoot away from the crosshairs? Why do we have horrible exotics like anything rubberized, the emperor is bad, the Thunderball fist is bad on tvhm and uvhm, which is a shame because its fun to use, the logans gun is okay, but just OK, all the Jacobs weapons that have a cap on their fire rate, and loads more bad guns, that are cursed, have fire rate caps, ridiculous gimmicks, are just low dps
Why are the vast majority of pearlecent weapons bad? My first was a storm and that sniper was so bad it was unbelievable. The storm may have been good in normal mode, but from what I hear it can’t be obtained in normal mode. I haven’t found any pearlecents that are worth using, why do I get gold and especially blue rarity weapons that are way better than my pearleacents, I found a god finger, but the stupid gimmick makes it so its not a very viable weapon…
I’m no veteran, I gt 2 op8 an a lvl 45 zero, my issue with this is why do I have to do 9 3 storyline playthroughs per character in order to get to uvhm? Its unbelievable that I can’t just start off in uvhm.
Why do certain characters do ridiculously more damage then others? I don’t have a gunzerker, I gt a siren, a mechromancer, and a assassin I’m currently leveling. I started off with a siren because I heard she was weak compared to Salvador, an I’ve always been the type to choose the weaker character, and have that character either on par or almost ridiculous like the top dog, because in most games all characters are on par with eachofpther whether u know it or not, but not Bl2.
What’s with Gaiges loss of accuracy, she’s significantly needed by this, after 150 anarchy stacks I can’t hit anything, I will even go as far as saying she’s just as vid without anarchy. Having high damage potential is great but what’s the point of you waste half your clip trying to shoot smthng, I guarantee its easier to just slag, then 2 shot, rather than trying to slag and missing, then you go into second wind and lose anarchy or die because you have so much anarchy you still can’t hit anything.
Why is slag even a element? Why do I have to slag a target then switch weapons to deal more damage? Why don’t slagged targets just take more damage period
Why are the raid bosses so difficult? Why would you have bosses in the game that can’t be solod unless yours god or smthing?
I get it, its a raid boss, raid bosses have to be difficult, but man, why even give a quest you came complete unless your Salvador of bore zero.
Why does zero lack skills that help boost his defenses? Why is melee zero not a option past normal mode unless your some kind of savage beast. Playing melee zero was fun, but unfortunately its just not smart on higher level difficultly.
If I gotta repeat the campaign several times then why can’t I skip cut scenes? Why do I have to listen to the same NPCs say and do stupid stuff during a cut scene? It was fun and cool at first, but give me a option to press o to skip.
Why can I only carry 39 items? That’s just not enough, an why is they amount of ammo I can carry so limited(especially sniper ammo) If we can carry more ammo you wouldn’t have to spawn in multiple enemies in a raid boss fight.
Why aren’t there more dual elements guns in Bl2? The chullain is so cool, and actually pretty strong, buy the self slag makes it not with using, so much so that I didn’t realize it was dual element until I saw a video my Vinylicpuma on youtube, which brings me to my next wonder…
I always wonder why can’t I carry health packs, I get having 99x health packs would be op, but why can’t I carry 3?
If certain gear has a special effect, then why isn’t there a section on the weapon card were it says
by the way, this gun heals you why isn’t there a option to flip the item card were it would show a list a special effects? This is okay for the ps3 version, but the handsome collection should have had this. I was literally on ultimate vault hunter mode with my second character before I watched a YouTube video by vinylic puma that explained that all moxxi weapons heal, I would always sell because I always had better gear, an had no idea they heal and get grenade damage bonuses, I was on ultimate vault hunter mode with my second character before I realized this, I would always use MIRVs that seek out enemies and return health, I know I’m a noob, I’m dumb, what ever, I just never knew, imagine how I felt(so noobish).
Why is other no weapon lvl system like how the contraband skyrocket scales with your character, why can’t I make weapons I love relevant again? Why can’t I mix and match weapon parts? Why do I have to go farm a current version of this gun that may have bad parts…
What’s the point of having a shield compacity of 4 million an 500,000 health if I can get 1 shotted and go down to 1400 health, 1 shotted, not even a clean shot, but you get 1 shotted and health gamed. Now am I really supposed to believe that 1 shot frim your basic mobb enemy can do brought 4.5 million damage?
What’s with all the bizarre nerfs? Why Nerf anything that makes THIS game easier, especially since its not centered around PvP.
Why does Gearbox like to troll the player? Gearbox trolls ppl from bizzare needs to having weapons in the game that just strait up try to kill you, I haven’t even begun to complain about everything wring with this game, I love Bl2, it was one of the ps3 games that defined who I was as a player, but that was on normal mode. Tvhm was fun also, but uvhm is just ridiculous, I’m tires of typing but I wanna talk about 1 last thing
Op levels and the promise of better loot… Now if the weapons I find scale, but they enemies scale even more, is it really better loot? If I’m playing op8 then why am I getting op7 and op6 weapon drops, how does that qualify as better loot? Why introduce op lvls and polerize the community? I’ve lost a lot of friends because they can’t hang with they insane difficulty spike, an I’m not willing to go back
Look, I love Bl2, I’m no veteran, just a casual player, I say casual because Op is kinda the norm now, and its weird if your under leveled, but I dnt think I will buy another Gearbox game, Uvhm op8 is up there with some of the most difficult fps`s I’ve played, a lot of stress tears and cigarettes smoked went into Bl2 and the game is still far from perfect, no more nerfs, how about buffing Tech, how about buffing everything, but even with all that its still probably one of the best games I’ve played, and I’ve played a lot of games, I’ve started in SNES when I was 2 years old, I can put borderlands 2 in my top 15 out of the hundreds of games I played, I only complain because I care about the game even if I’m a casual noon scrub, or maybe its just op lvls making me think I’m a casual noob, either way I do love the game…
