So I've been playing through Borderlands 2 solo and have been enjoying the hell out of it. At this point, I've put about 19 hours into my Commando and a couple hours into a secondary, and am basically tearing through every thing that I see like a hot knife through butter.
At this point I am Level 18, spec'd towards the Turret barrier (which I don't really use) and have been primarily using shotguns, which may be part of the problem. The shotgun that I have has been my main weapon for a few levels now, a Hyperion Corrosive Shotgun that does 74x14 (just over 1000) damage, with a 8% chance to corrode for 50 damage per second. As I said, this thing tears through everything I've seen, and makes even Hyperion Robots look like an absolute joke.
That specific weapon aside, there is also the fact that the Missions I have am receiving are always 3+ levels below my current. For example, I just received a side mission from Lilith, and despite being at Level 18 the mission that she gave me is Level 13, which immediately makes it's difficulty Trivial. Is this a normal thing for everyone else? The enemies I see aren't quite as low, but are still low enough to not be much of a challenge, usually ranging between 2 and 4 levels below me even if they are the first I have received in an area.
It feels really off to me, having things be this easy so far. I'm honestly hoping that I come across some random difficulty spike at some point just to make things more interesting. Hell, at this point I think I'm going to stop using that shotgun just to help out with that problem. Has anyone else been having this issue?
