I know every game has a meta and all weapons wont be viable late game. But most rpg’s or similar games only have about 400 items in the entire game and still has about 50 viable gear for end game. So if you look at that ratio and look at borderlands 3, 1 billion weapons to only 10 being viable is absurd.
They should’ve made some viable green or purple gear as well. If not, then it shouldn’t be in the loot pool late game. It’s crazy most people know their slogan “1 billion guns” and think there will be diversity but in reality your left with only 10 guns.
I’m sure people can say “turn your mayhem level down or you can still use them but it’ll take longer I do it all the time”. The point isnt to make the game harder on yourself on purpose or make it easier, that should naturally be in the game without me tweaking things.
This game wasn’t perfect but definitely on the right path with mayhem 1.0 there was more diversity and alot of builds and weapons viable. They should’ve kept that formula and expanded on that. So far mayhem 2.0 has been a let down. I hope Gearbox can get this game back in a good state soon because it’s not looking good right now.
