    I love about this game that I'm still discovering weapon synergies all these years later. I was halfway through a Claptrap quest in Bunkers and Badasses that gives you a unique pistol at the top of your inventory, and I was trying to complete the quest before starting the new DLC because it always annoys me having that one useless gun you can't drop- but after some light wiki-ing I realised it's massively powerful when paired with single shot explosives like the Hive or Flakker.
    Holy crap, the Grog Nozzle is one of the best weapons in the game. It doesn't even occupy a backpack slot because it's a mission weapon. It is standard practice to start that mission and never finish it.

    And it's great anyway without guns like those. It's basically instaheal when doing any damage with grenades or skills or whatever. On top of that it's a slag pistol, so useful on the offensive too.

    It's best for Salvador who becomes near-unstoppable with the Grog Nozzle in the left hand.

    @hedben2013 Ah right cheers. Yeah it was a bit confusing. The penny dropped after the 2nd or 3rd cutscene I started by going somewhere!

    @Mayhem64 Why are you playing it on 360 when you have an Xbone?
    I played and blitzed BL2 on the 360 when it was originally released way back in 2012. All DLC, all achievements etc, and I think Zer0 and Salvador up to level 72 each. Everything I did with the game (and indeed BL1 and BL Pre-Sequel) is still sitting on my 360, I haven't needed to put anything relating to the franchise on my One yet, because I did it all back then on the 360.

    BL3, hoping that I have time to play considering that I now have a six month old daughter AND Gears 5 is also out September, will be the first game from the franchise I will play on the One.

    Great idea- I've never done a Gunzerker in BL2, for some reason he didn't appeal as much as the others but with the new start at lv30 option I'll have to give him a go.

    @hedben2013

    Sal is notoriously overpowered with the Grog Nozzle, to the point that it's considered cheating/exploit by some. What you do is have the Grog Nozzle in your left hand and not let go of the trigger. His ammo regeneration easily outdoes the GN's ammo consumption, any damage you deal heals you instantly, and enemies are constantly slagged so suffer a severe damage boost. Of course you can use something else if you find it too easy.

    It's kinda fun to experiment with gun/gear/skill combos for gunzerking, it's a science in itself. One of my favourites for ludicrous damage is two Lady Fists + Bee shield.

    Finished the campaign in 1 as Mordecai; moved straight onto 2 as Zer0. Kinda wish I'd changed style but I love sniping too much.

    Zer0 is also a stealth/melee character, so aside from being good with sniper rifles he's pretty different to Mordecai. More of a ninja class than a hunter.

    I really need to play some of the other characters, I'm always Zer0 because I like the sniper tree, but I don't melee and very rarely use his skill. Currently I'm sniping from a distance and then rushing in with an awesome rainbow SMG I found.

    As has been said above though, the new ability to jump in at level 30 should help with trying out some new classes. I don't think I've ever used Krieg for example.

    I'm quite enjoying the phaselock thingy of the siren. Especially now it can restore some health and also has a slight AoE to it.

    His ghost mode is pretty cool. Enjoying letting bad guys pen me in, shifting behind them and shotgunning them in the back.

    Gaige is pretty fun if you fancy a change, stack anarchy, get a fibber and shoot everywhere but at your target.

    So definitely looks like currently if you only have the backwards compatible version of BL2 for 360, you can't play the new DLC. Typical. Have to see what my options are, everything is installed, just can't see it present. Somehow get a cheap HC to install maybe.

    @Mayhem64 It's on Game Pass at the moment, or if that's no good for you, I've got a physical copy I'll sell you for 7.50 (assuming you're in the UK). Message me on xbox if you're interested.

    Mate HC is like 6 for two games plus all DLC at 1080p60 (or 4K and HD textures on X/Pro) with a field of view slider. Definition of a no brainer.

    Yeah had a look there and saw it was down to that price for the next four days. Tempting. Just means I have a game sitting with a few achievements unlocked and the rest not even though I did them already. My OCD hah hah...

    It does say on the spiel, "For Borderlands 2 or Handsome Collection" so... suggests you don't need HC to play it...?

    Typical - I went to play the new DLC last night and PSN was down. So I couldn't download my lvl ~60 Zer0 and instead started with a lvl30 Gaige.

    I need to get back into the swing of things with BL and the lvl30 guns feel awful, but Gaige seems like a fun character :)

    I decided to buy HC heh... anyhow, once it's up and running, I'll load my level 61 Zer0 up to remind myself what skill trees I had set up, and put the layout here for anyone interested in how I eventually spec'ed. Plenty of legendary weapons in my arsenal mind you...

    @dsmx thanks :)

    Although I play so intermittently these days (real life getting in the way) I've no idea when that'll be. I'll drop you an invite next time I'm on

    @GoatApocalypse
    First time of playing ?
    It is rather great.

    The 3rd also looks wonderful but the release date is no good for me.

    Does anybody know if this is 3 going to support pc Xbox cross play?

    Mate has a one X and I have pc. Only reference I can find is articles saying the ms page used to state cross play but it's now been removed.

    Are others here picking this up at launch or waiting till steam release?

    @DUFFMAN5

    Yeah first time. It's better than 1 I think. Just cannot get my hands on a corrosive shotgun though, which is frustrating.
