    @adamasunder12 It's a quest-specific gun given to you for a single mission. Actually... if that was your best gun, then you're severely under-geared for the next boss.
    Not my best gun by a long shot (ha) it was just the fun thing I had right now and was really enjoying using it.

    I think my favourite so far is the Doom double-barrel shotgun with Amara. Butcher was great too with Moze, but is underlevelled now.

    As for playthroughs, I've switched to just doing the main story in normal mode. Completionist will make you OP for normal (I think I finished it at level 45 or so the first time), and after just doing the story I'm about level 35 but side missions are still level 20 or so, so they're a waste of time. So story only in normal and then completionist in TVHM where everything scales with you.

    I also store a lot of level 50 rocket launchers in the safe which new vault hunters then steal and sell to afford SDU's, the filthy cheats

    I'd like to get to level 50.... Only just dinged 34.

    I have a nice sliding scale of epics and legs for my next chars to use.

    Todays hotfix:

    Vault Hunter Adjustments
    Amara
    We addressed a concern that Alacrity was only rewarding players one point worth of bonuses even if the player put in more than one point. In addition, we wanted Phasegrasp to be more accessible to all weapon types and play styles, so we doubled the range to grasp an enemy.
    Putting points into Alacrity now awards a reload speed bonus per rank
    Phasegrasp can now be used on targets further away and the cooldown is now instantly returned if a player misses
    Moze
    The Bloodletter class mod was creating some overwhelming synergies for Moze so we increased the delay and decreased the recharge rate of the shield to compensate. This should help encourage the intended use of this class mod, which is to heal shields manually, not automatically. Means of Destructionís re-trigger delay was adjusted again because the change limited other builds beyond creating infinite grenades. The infinite grenade bug will be addressed in a future patch but we wanted to enable other builds that use Means of Destruction so we dramatically reduced the re-trigger delay to a reasonable number.
    Bloodletter Class Mod
    - Increased the Recharge Delay by 150%
    - Reduced the Recharge Rate by 50%
    Addressed a reported bug with Close the Distance so the Action Skill Augment will now deal the intended Shock Damage
    Means of Destruction now has a re-trigger delay of 0.3 seconds
    FL4K
    The Leave No Trace change last week to FL4K was to forcefully inject the functionality of a cooldown into the ability. However, the value that was added was never the intended the value. We dramatically lowered it to retain the promise of the ability but with a cooldown that still allows players to gain ammo without dramatically removing a core aspect of a weaponís gameplay loop.
    Leave No Trace now has a re-trigger delay set to 0.3 seconds
    Zane
    Death Follows Close will correctly update several Kill Skills after unlocking this ability
    Weapon Hotfixes
    The Lob's projectile tick damage is now 60% of base damage (up from 20%) and projectile speed decelerates faster to increase chances of hitting the same target multiple times
    Creeping Death damage increased by 200%
    Carrier damage increased by 60%
    Gunerang damage increased by 20%
    All Sniper Rifle Zoom Levels have been slightly reduced
    Long scopes on Jakobs, Children of the Vault, and DAHL Assault Rifles have also been slightly reduced
    Anointed Parts:
    - When Zane swaps positions with his Digi-Clone, the damage gained is increased to 130% (up from 75%)
    - When FL4K hits a target with Rakks, the target now takes 100% increased damage (up from 50%)
    - The Anointed part "Increased damage vs Badasses" no longer heals the player and now correctly adds bonus damage to Badass enemies
    Bug Fixes
    Pain, Terror, and Agonizer 9000 have been adjusted to have an increased chance to drop higher quality loot
    Addressed a reported bug with Dynasty Diner that could potentially halt mission progress for some players
    Addressed a reported concern that some players fell through the floors in various boss arenas
    Modified enemy spawn level discrepancies reported in the later parts of the campaign
    We noticed that some enemies were spawning at lower levels than expected in the later parts of the campaign. Players should no longer see enemies that are dramatically lower levels than other nearby enemies in certain areas.

    I like the reduction in sniper scopes. High zoom levels always feel like a disadvantage (also in BL2, where I avoided one of Zer0's skills because one of its effects was to increase zoom level)

    It seems that aspiring vault hunters aren't picky and will also loot level 34 gear, so make sure not to collect any valuable stuff in there. Just sayin.

    @DrStrangelove 9x scopes are indeed horrible, I can't get my ads sens low enough to make them usable.

    The lazy way of giving cash to your alt is play your main for 10 mins killing bosses or whatever, you now have a lost loot thing full of purples and crap legs. Your alt is now rich. I have not actually used that lost loot thing for its intended purpose yet, mine is permanently full of stuff I didn't want to pick up.

    So now I've finished the game... TVHM or Mayhem? What's the fastest path to level 50 (currently 44) and decent gear?

    The fastest path to both is Mayhem, but in my humble opinion it's less fun than just TVHM. Either way it won't take long until you reach 50.

    If you're looking for perma-lootsplosion then Mayhem it is. I just think that waters down the effort and joy in finding great stuff. Mayhem basically screws up game balance in return for instant gratification.

    @DrStrangelove If I used Mayhem to get to 50 quickly, would that mean that TVHM quest rewards would all be at level 50?

    Yeah, TVHM always scales with you.

    You were right not to spoil it. I enjoyed the shit out of that whole lead up to the fight...the actual boss fight was a bit annoying and a died a couple of times specifically on the one attack that also destroys all the adds :-/

    You can do both, despite what I read somewhere else Mayhem mode is immediately available in TVHM.

    Console players have to replay the entire storty in TVHM before mayhem is available, idk if this a bug or intended.
    Mayhem itself is just poorly designed, you just quit/reload in 2 seconds (on PC anyway) if you get a stupid roll. Diablo 3 and the torment/rifts system is a much better way of endgame development, than the mayhem roulette.

    Thinking about it, I have a suspicion that the PC way where you get it right away is the unintended one. And it's much more delicate to remove a mod that people are already playing than to add it for the others. I don't want to be the guy who tells the PC gaming community "sorry you can't have that anymore, I'm sure you'll understand"

    I got Mayhem on PS4, as soon as I'd completed the standard playthrough.

    Yeah but also in TVHM? You always get it in normal mode, but in TVHM PC players get it and console players apparently don't.

    Sorry, misunderstood. I've not ventured into TVHM yet, so I don't know. I've just farmed upto max level in Mayhem, then started another character. I want to have multiple max level characters to take through the forthcoming Halloween DLC.
