This is really the thing with BL2 : it’s mostly full of point and shoot guns from white to purple ( and even orange ). Then you get the red text items where in some cases where you get past the learning curve ( including how to not kill yourself ) they’re the the most powerful items in the game.
Then you have so many others that still require a massive learning curve and you’re left with a usable but sub-par item.
Some find this a cool part of the BL2 cosmic joke - like me. To others it’s an unnecessary speed bump.
