It really is ridiculous. I just hit a boss for 9,000,000 with a Tediore shotgun reload. That's right, nine million damage.
I suppose one could call this game breaking, but I didn't get to this point until well into 2.5 and now I'm really only farming bosses, so it didn't really "break" anything until I was more or less finished with the game on this character. Nothing else in the game that I've encountered comes anywhere close to the damage output you can achieve whilst wearing The Bee, so go out and get one already! It's an amp shield that doesn't discharge when you fire, so every round is an amped round. That means if you have a pistol that fires two rounds at once, both are amped. A shotgun that is 5000x15 with my amp shield? That's an 850,000 damage normal hit per shot, not a crit, and unbuffed by any other skills which may increase damage....of which Commando has a ton.
What do you think about this item in particular? Can't wait to get it, or are you avoiding it because you think it'll ruin the fun somehow?
