    Offline disables any hotfixes, I guess you would now have to uninstall the patch and also go offline to go back to day 1 droprates? Legendary coms do not drop at all in offline for some reason btw.

    Finally got the fourth weapon slot today in my solo game (co-op is way behind). Fuck me, but they make you wait for that. No idea why - if there was one holdover from the older games I'd have dropped, it would be the gating of weapons slots.

    I know that Halo/CoD players may have trouble with numbers as high as 4. For them, 2 may be achievable, but 3 is aspirational and 4 is off in the lands of make-believe. But Borderlands isn't really playing to that crowd. I've been playing fpses since Wolfenstein 3d and Doom. I can deal with numbers as high as 7, even 8. Just give me all of the weapons slots from the outset, you cunts.

    Yeah I so hoped they'd finally scrap that nonsense. It adds nothing, it is only a nuisance. Why not just have 4 from the start? Why make it worse on purpose?

    While doing some testing I realised what makes snipers seem so weak compared to BL2, they have a much lower crit bonus.

    BL2:
    Regular crit bonus: x2
    Sniper crit bonus: x4

    BL3:
    Regular: x2
    Sniper: x2.4

    And that's only after the 27 Sep hotfix, before that they didn't have any bonus, doing just the standard x2.

    Up d-pad: Sniper
    Down d-pad: Shotgun
    Left d-pad: Pistol
    Right d-pad: SMG or Combat Rifle

    I've been using that setup for years. I tried cycling through weapons with Y but it just wasn't the same so I'm back on "classic" controls for weapon switching

    Hmm, they have increased the frequency of coms from Katagawa from zero, to stuff all, in my experience tonight.

    That's good to know. I hate using the Y button to cycle weapons.

    3 hours I've been on this today and nabbed 4 legs. Much prefer how it is now. Finally upgraded from Moxxis Bouncing Pair to Storm Front grenade.

    It's fantastic to lob into a constricted room and light it all up with electricity.

    Genuinely thought Billy the anointed one was gonna be a pain in the ass because he seemed inescapable... and downed me 3 times near instantly. 4th go and realised I just had to 'benny hill' while cycling elements on him.

    How does this run on the xbox x? I'm getting an xbox in the next week and I'm thinking about getting the Billy Big Balls one as B3 on the base is a little jittery.

    It's running really good on pc right now ... until I hooked up the Xbox pad and tried to play on the tv. Ran like a juddery piece of shit. It's was lagging and freezing like crazy. Turnes the pad off and went back to k+m on the monitor and it went back to normal.

    Is this a thing? Wtf?

    @crashVoodoo There's been all sorts of weird glitches on my mates xbox. Sound cutting out, map glitches, cursor moving up instead of down, feedback being non existent.

    Still, it's compelling regardless. Hopefully they'll fix it

    Just beat him again with my 2nd character (Moze) and he was super easy. Had a good but not great gun and mostly ammo skills. With Amara I had more damage and health skills and it was awful, he killed me 2 times after a long fight each. This time he was dead in like a minute.

    Similarly, Graveward. The first time he was an absolute monster bullet sponge, taking abuse almost like a raid boss. Took 10-15 minutes. This time, about one minute. Did they nerf them or something?

    @DrStrangelove I believe they have retuned a few bosses a bit, yes. Killavolt got most of the attention, as he was outright bugged before, but I think there's been a lot of general fiddling with boss stats.

    Good to know, they're not too expensive now. I think the extra stability will be worth it

    Have reached the capstone in Moze's ammo tree yesterday so unlimited ammo now. Not much later found a Butcher, that's a shotgun that shoots only three pellets but the fire rate is 8.5/s. It's a savage weapon with the downside that it eats through your ammo in seconds, but I've got unlimited ammo. This is madness.

    The Quasar legendary grenade is my shit. Wish I was playing as Moze for infinite grenades, it's hilarious watching mobs ragdoll everywhere.

    Ran through half of the bosses last night to farm the super rare legendaries. Yikes, my Zane is not built for Mayhem 3 final boss. Was doing the rest handily up until then. Loudmouth was dropping about 3-4 annointed legendaries a run though. Might just farm him up a bit.

    Is eden 6 *that* bad? I've just arrived there. I spotted earlier folk suggesting it took a long time to move on from it?

    @Vortex808 Are you still rocking the laser-sploder? It lasted me a good 6 or 7 levels before I replaced it.

    I've enjoyed it but it's a bit large with offshoot maps. However its a long as you make it. If you want to whizz through them the main story quests are quite quick. I've wandered and taken my time with it...

    :-D

    I am indeed. I'm lev 23 now though, so it's not quite having the impact it did at 20, but it's still a lovely thing to have in the armoury when times get tough!

    It'll be winging it's way to Duff in a few levels time I guess.

    It's almost a shame the weapons don't level with you or I'd never part with it! Hopefully RNG will be kind and I'll find another awesome one to replace it with once it's reached it's end.

    So they apparently greatly nerfed Billy and Graveward but it seems they also greatly buffed Troy. He's practically a raid boss now. All the random instadeath is annoying enough, but he took like 2-3 thousand bullets from my best legendary that just rips through everything else. Come on.

    I beat Killavolt first try tonight - not too tough, and I also beat Traunt on Athenas without much difficulty too (despite him previously beating me a few times). They weren't easy, but far from impossible.

    "Pets no longer push the player around" is the best fix yet.
