We have a pet class in BL3. Their called FL4K. Moze is a Gunner with a Mech Suit - totally different fantasy, totally different style. I’m against making the character-classes more like each other.
And, yeah, much as I love having pets and FL4K is my favorite in BL3, Gearbox isn’t that good at making pets (yet, I have hope, and it’s a difficult job, despite what one of the GBX devs said about it not being that hard). Granted I come from the best pet classes in the gaming world - World of Warcraft, Demonologist Warlocks and Beast Master Hunters - where even they still have their significant problems.
I enjoy Moze wearing her suit, I’d rather see that fantasy strengthened than have Iron Bear become more of a pet than it already is.
