I usually get really really really lucky in normal, somewhat lucky in TVHM, and I get a few good things here and there in UVHM. On normal I always have great luck finding extremely good weapons that it makes my playthrough 100 times more easier.
The most recent experiences with luck was while playing BL2 on normal mode while I was like level 20. I had a loot midget spawn twice in the same area. The first time he dropped this legendary corrosive grenade that did 12k damage and around 1k damage per second when someone gets corroded. Talk about making my normal mode 100 times easier! It killed normal enemies in one shot almost all the time. I beat the Bunker in less than 30 seconds by just spamming it with that nade. The second time he dropped this legendary incendiary weapon that did 400 damage with an insane fire rate and burn per second for that kind of damage that it initially does.
Just today I beat normal on BL2 and I moved on to TVHM, and you know that place in the beginning where Claptrap gets his eye stolen? Well on the left is a room with lockers and a toiler. I opened the locker out of randomness and I find a legendary infinity pistol that does 1.3k damage! That made my night. I never finished BL2 in the past, so I’ve never seen such a badass gun. Saved me an hour of farming doc mercy.
In UVHM mode I usually get a good weapon here and there, but I usually have to farm a boss like 20 times before getting a legendary, and probably 60 times for a pearl.
What’s your luck like when it comes to finding loot? This question applies to all the Borderlands game in general, not just TPS.
