@Capum15: That is one sexy-ass shotgun.

Ri-goddamn-diculous as a melee focused zer0. lv45 now and it still shreds dudes up. :| I also have an equally absurd revolver with +100% melee. Deception is so OP once you find bladed weapons.

Got this as a quest reward for the "Firehawk" cult quest chain on "True Vault Hunter" difficulty. The nova continually procs until the shield recharges, so in a firefight you're basically putting out waves of 12k damage every couple of seconds around you (as long as your shield is still down). Seems to be a rare reward from what I'm reading.
Got this as the quest reward for the "E-Tech" weapon intro quest second time around. Basically works like the needler from Halo, and packs a wallop.
Got this from Michael Mamaril (the first time I saw the guy, finally). 835 damage plus 883 fire damage for a SMG at this level is NUTS.
Got this from a vending machine for like 75k. My go to weapon, and it looks great too.
Put this in here just for you lower level people, to see how crazy the damage output can get, haha. 49k damage at level 37 :D

Well my Level 50 Golden Keys unlocked two sets of two purple sniper rifles...which I rarely use. They're nice enough though, I guess. I pulled this legendary off of the final boss of playthrough 2 with the Vault Hunter relic, though. It shoots a huge cluster of exploding shells in a random pattern in front of you, good close range shotgun that will see a lot of use.

@peachesrcool: Holy f**king shit. That's an amazing shield.

Found this monster when I was level 23. Still rocking it now at 28, and I expect to be finishing up my first playthrough with it.

The SMG is a sequel to the Hyperion Bitch in Borderlands (as in "the bitch is back"), and it looks like it gives you ammo when you pick up a weapon type. For example if you have the gun in one of your four weapon slots and pick up a launcher you'll gain launcher ammo.
 
The important part of the shield red text is what comes after the elipses, namely "... sting like a bee". Float like a butterfly (keep a full shield) and you'll sting like a bee (high amp damage, low shield charge use).

To infinity and beyond! Now if only I could find a sniper rifle with infinite ammo...

#162 Posted by SgtSphynx (1266 posts) -
Well, I was correct in my suspicions about the IED Boosters for this...
Wasn't quite expecting this though...
They go flying out toward whatever is attacking you. You have to be really careful though, I got caught in a field of about nine of these boosters, meaning 27 shock boosters, put me in fight for your life, but since it killed all the enemies around me, I had no choice but to die.
#163 Edited by Capum15 (4811 posts) -

Moar pictures!
 

 Sadly, I replaced my previous fireball explode-y shotgun with this monster (I put the old shotgun in the bank though, never letting that go). A friend I've been co-oping with used a golden key and let me take this. You get three shots before reloading (takes...four ammo per shot, I believe), but fires 17 bullets. And then you throw it like a grenade. I've been wrecking with it. Literally sniping Rakk from across the map. With a shotgun.

 I've also been sniping Rakk (and other things) with this. Replaced my previous Maliwan sniper, but now with electricity! I can also stab things.

 Two ammo per shot, with a box scope, and 86 rounds in the dual-barrel magazine. The barrel also rotates as you fire. Goes through ammo really, really fast.
I've gotten a few more weapons I've been using since I took these. I'll put them up later if I remember to take a screen of them.

Still love this game.

Finally finished second playthrough, and started farming bosses for oranges, so far todays haul has been good:

My first Terramorphous solo kill
This is how gunzerkers solo Terramorphous
That asshole the Warrior refuses to drop Conference Call after dozens of kills, but at least i got this
A perfect shield for Health focused Gunzerker, with some class mods, relics and this my health starts approaching 90,000
#166 Posted by _Zombie_ (1462 posts) -

Got my first orange gun the other day from the slot machines in Moxxi's bar. Pretty kickass Tediore shotgun that homes in on the enemy when you reload.

#167 Posted by chilibean_3 (1622 posts) -
Used this guy for a while. Looks pretty slick, I think.
The first time I hit all Borderlands symbols on the slots.
#168 Posted by MB (11973 posts) -

I just became insanely overpowered. An amp shield that adds +51817 damage to every shot and has no amp drain...yeah. The Bee isn't that great as a shield, the capacity is about a third of what I normally use...but now my fully automatic explosive gatling gun his for 63k (normal, non-crit, non-slag damage...yeah.)

If anyone playing on Xbox wants a copy of this, let me know. It's ridiculous.

I went through the game again in True Vault Hunter mode and hit 50 just before the final boss the second time around. Now every enemy in the game is 52-53.

Are you solo'ing the whole thing? What class are you playing and what's your build?

#175 Posted by MB (11973 posts) -

@Napalm: I played through most of the game with at least one other person...solo'd very little of it. I'm playing a commando, here's my current build but I haven't respecced since I hit 50, and may do so soon. Also, Impact is at 11 for 44%/33% and Battlefront is at 10 for +60%, from my class mod.

I saw yours in the Trading thread...it's still very, very good though. To give you an idea how much damage I'm doing when fully buffed with my turret out and the target slagged, my 12,000 damage pistol crits for 465k. That is....ridiculous.

I'm not playing that class, so I'm not sure what I'm looking at. The little I can gather is it looks like you're built for raw damage output and crowd control? Doesn't look like too much in terms of self-survival, are you doubling up with a Siren?

#178 Posted by MB (11973 posts) -

@Napalm: Exactly, played almost the entire 50 levels with a Siren. However, I have several points in skills that regenerate my own health and I don't really have any trouble on my own thanks to the turret.

I'm playing through as a Siren and they made this class a ton more viable solo. She can spec'd to be a pretty decent crowd controller or health support role if going multi, but she still has her own damage output that is useful when taken advantage of.

#180 Edited by Tennmuerti (8003 posts) -

More Terramorphous goodies:

Kinda on the low dmg end, i've seen this rifle with 16k. Oh yeah, why is it good? It shoots 5 lighting bolts in a spread per shot!
Now the Terra legendary class mods make perfect sense, look at all the fire dmg. Also it's a Roid shield, a Nova shield, and fire imminity in one!
Thus ends my Terra solo farming (for now), this is his last orange
#181 Posted by MB (11973 posts) -

@Tennmuerti: Are you going to switch between the Hide and the Bee like I am? I really need both now I think depending on the situation.

Also...I got the same Commando class mod tonight but I'm not sure I want to give up the one I already have. I mean, the Terramorphous one is clearly better, but I'm going to have to respec in order to take advantage of it. At least all of the skills it augments are towards the top of each tree....I have a feeling I'm going to be losing some skills that I really rely on in order to use that class mod, though.

#182 Edited by Tennmuerti (8003 posts) -

@MB:

The Bee is only going to be strictly for boss farming runs for me, not normal play. It's too OP and does not suit my Gunzerker playstyle. As for what I will use normally, it's a tossup atm for me between the Hide, Neogenator, and I have another Anshin purple shield with 9k hp and 40k shields. A gunzerker partially in health build can get a lot of milage out of health buffs.

Terra's class mod, it's a tossup, 2 of the 5 skills rely on going deep into Gunlust, they are starting skills but you need the mid level gamechanger skill to use them properly, and filled to the brim is not that important, so i'll only be using 2 out of 5 of those skills currently. So it basically becomes do I want an extra 8k health (closer to 15k with buffs) or 35% dmg from purple class mod. I'm going to have to look well at my shields/mods when I wake up tomorrow see if any other builds and combos work better then the setup i've been running.

(ooh just got an idea, OR i could go 11/26/6 with 2 points to toss around, get all bonuses, but then my playstyle will have to change from reloading to juggling 4 gun swaps) i might be too lazy for this tho even if it's a neat idea

Going to be aiming for the other legendary class mod tomorrow, to see what it's like.

Siren + Hide + Terra class mod would be pretty sick tho. Some of Siren's best skills are low tier. Plus all teh FIRE.

(i've been up for 21 hours now)

zzz...

#183 Posted by Barrabas (325 posts) -

I just really like the look of this sniper rifle. Also with this gun I've now had at least one E-Tech version of every type of gun. So there's that.

I'm not that far into the game by any means but i did find this Vladof AR that i just think looked so cool.
I went through levels 20-26 with it, it served me well. But i sold it :(
 
It was a blue and it did around 136 damage with fire damage as well. I don't have a picture but it looked so damn cool to me that i went ahead and drew it.      

   

 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
I'd say it looks pretty close. I also want to know if the sketch looks okay, I just started drawing the other day.

#186 Posted by BasketSnake (1158 posts) -

What's left to do when you finish new game + besides the end-game boss? Work on your badass rank I suppose and try to get better loot. Are there more end-game bosses? I'm googling now!

#187 Posted by Tennmuerti (8003 posts) -

@BasketSnake: Kill Terramorphous. All other bosses scale to lvl 50+ as well so you can kill them for loot. There is also Vermivorous the Invincible which is close to Terra in challange, but is too much of a pain in the ass to spawn imo.

#188 Posted by BasketSnake (1158 posts) -

How was the DLC scaled in Borderlands 1? Could you play that at new game + difficulty? I'm googling, I'm googling!

The DLC scaled poorly if you had already cleared the game twice when you started it (shitloads of high level Crimson Lance, you not having any DLC gear; pretty much boned if you didn't have specific overpowered corrosive weapons), but worked fine if you were midway your first or second playthrough.

Got this bad boy from a vending machine. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it.
 

It's basically a homing MIRV tesla. Using it indoors is basically instant death for everything around my target.

That's really nothing. With The Bee, my shield adds 51,817 damage to every projectile a gun fires...that includes shotguns. To break it down into numbers, a 3,500x15 level 50 shotgun with no other bonuses or elemental damage or anything would hit for 830,000 damage per trigger pull if all of the pellets connected. That's if there were no crits and the target wasn't slagged and I didn't have any other bonuses. Against a slagged target that's 1.6 million damage per pull of the trigger...

It's game breaking in some people's eyes. I just call it fun as hell. At this point The Bee is a must-have shield for anyone farming bosses in 2.5. Some choose to only use it during boss encounters, because it doesn't exactly offer great protection or anything. It's purely about raw and ridiculous damage output.

Yep, whenever it activates it sends out 6 or so additional tesla generators around itself just like a MIRV. It's glorious.

Speak of the devil, I just got a similar type of grenade yesterday. Down in the Rat hideout.

The grenade spits out child grenades which fry anything within the zone of influence, then the child grenades explode giving additional electric damage.

Hah! Seriously...as if I don't think about Borderlands 2 enough as it is, I made the mistake of browsing through this thread while at work today and was hit with the sudden urge to farm some bosses for loot. Great stuff, keep 'em coming people! It's going to get a lot more interesting soon as more people hit 50 and start farming high end purples and Legendaries, I can't wait.

I finally found THE gun for me.

Orange Vladof sniper rifle. Huge fire rate, fully automatic, low recoil, high clip, insane crits, oh and also fires 3 bullets per shot/round. When gunzerkering I am basically spitting hot fire out of what is essentially a gatling sniper rifle.

A gunzerkers wet dream. I want to have sexual relations with it just looking at it.

THAT'S MY JAM!!!

It's everything I want out of a gun. /snif it's perfect.

@MB: I used the bee to farm the shit out of Terra. Even 2-3 player version is cake now for me, tho 4 player Terra can wiggle his ass a bit too much and extend the fight or even kill me. But i'm not using an optimal spec for him. And still no drop of the gunzerker head I want. :( I must have vendored 50+ legendary class mods by now.

#199 Edited by StarvingGamer (7995 posts) -

@Tennmuerti: Also fires 3 bullets for the price of one right? Fuck, that would be so amazing for my Siren. If it was Corrosive it would be purrrfect.

EDIT: And to actually contribute to this thread, I don't have it, but my Gunzerker friend picked up the orange grenade drop from Boom which is essentially 20 grenades at once. Most encounters there are so many explosions filling my screen that it's almost impossible for me to shoot anything. It makes me feel so useless until he drops because he blew himself up with his rocket launcher and I instantly rez him with Phaselock.

I really need to use grenades.
