After playing BL3 to lvl 19 now, I have the distinct impression that BL3 is no longer the gun-centric game as previous BL versions. This especially goes for any solo marksman…marksperson. I took great pleasure in honing my controller (PS4) skills in past BL games to use the more controller-centric guns because ultimately, controller skills are the most unique skills an active player brings to the game. In other words, individual manual dexterity plays an important role in active gaming, where as pets, shields, etc are passive gaming elements. Some of the BL guns require more active controller-oriented skills (ie Jakobs guns) versus passive elemental damage. BL3, in my opinion, has taken on too many passive modes that take the fun out of any would be solo finesse gunslinging. Soloing speed and marksmanship are not in BL3 (in particular confronting bosses). Given that now you need group players, drones & shields (Zane), Pets (FL4K), heavy-armored mech & berserker auto-fire (Moze), and siren magic (Amara) to defeat major bosses, finesse sniping is no longer really a strong part of the game….if it is there at all. Zero….where art thou?…hello?? I find it sadly ironic and very disappointing in a game that has built/advertised a strong reputation for gun variety and options (advertised especially in BL3), that marksmanship alone no longer cuts it. First person armor, pets, group effort, and magic…..second/third+ (group) person shooter? *le sigh* If you have had better luck on a solo gun build (not shored up with anything else) please post vids and/or make suggestions (constructively nice please)! Thanks in advance GO JAKOBS!
