Guns in this game have been weird for me.  In Borderlands I'm usually just somebody that wants full auto elemental guns that shoot really, really fast.  I never worry about accuracy much, and do all my fighting close in.  In BL3, I'm using that semi automatic Bekah at medium/long range 95% of the time.  Jakobs is forever sending me guns in the mail.  I've got decent pistols and SMGs, but I never use em.  The one thing I do need is a decent shotgun.  The only one I've seen so far that I like is the beloved Conference Call.  Unfortunately, mine is about 25 levels too low now.  

I had one shotgun that I liked in the entire game, it was a legendary electrical shotgun that chained electricity to 4 other nearby enemies.  The only real issue is that it can kill all the extra enemies during boss fights so you don't have anything to shoot when you have to fight for your life.  Otherwise all my favorite guns were either pistols or SMGs, which I never used in Borderlands 1, 2, or the Presequel.

I have three primary weapons that I sort of cycle between at this point, based on the situation.

My primary at this point is one that's labelled as an assault rifle but, for all intents and purposes, is basically a flamethrower. Not a hell of a lot of range, but it will barbecue basically anything that isn't made of metal in a couple of seconds. Now that I've maxed out the "Bottomless Mags" tree with my Moze build, I don't really have to worry about ammo, either.

I've also got a pistol that I can switch back and forth between Radiation and Corrosive and a Corrosive SMG that I've been melting stuff with.

Unfortunately, for those last two, I think I'm getting close to the point where those are no longer going to do sufficient damage and I'm going to need to start looking elsewhere.

These challenges are getting old. Kill captain haunt 25 times. I'm at 9 and tired of it. 

If it was anything more than a weapon skin I might keep going but I just dont care.

Still plugging away at this.

Completed all the Crew Challenges up to Devil's Razor. Had a couple of Targets of Opportunity from pretty early in the game that I missed, so I went in there (at Level 36) with guns blazing and just sort of stomped through three of them (one on Athenas and two on Promethea) in a total of about 20 minutes.

Have some side quests I might try to bump off before I go try to rescue Tannis.

Also, I wish they'd give us the option to turn the Halloween quest thing off if we're not actually pursuing it. I'm tired of the stupid ghosts all the time, particularly when one of them kills me, there's nothing around in FFYL mode, and it costs me $15K+ to get resurrected.

Damn thing doesn't end till December 5.  Only good part of it is the loot ghosts.

I dunno if I just got lucky with guns/shields/etc or if this game is easier than BL2, but the ghosts are pretty much all that has got me killed in TVMH.  I breezed through one of the harder bosses last night, but then got killed because I took out too many varkids at once and the horde of ghosts overwhelmed me.

Something tells me my temporary hiatus from B3 is a good thing.

I'm irritated with the Halloween thing too. Good thing I have The Outer Worlds to keep me entertained. I probably won't come back to BL3 until after the Maliwan Blacksite thing ends

If anybody needs a hundred shitty Ghost Call orange grenades, let me know.

Send one to me so that I can stick it on my Legendary Item Feng Shui wall in my quarters on Sanctuary.

I'm not the one to complain about orange guns but dang this game has a lot of them. Glad the update increased the gun safe by a ton. I did finally find an infinity pistol. I don't know why but I always kept one on bl2. Don't use it often but glad to have it. 

Oh and this new dlc mission is pretty dalm rough!

Damnit.  Need to get back on.  Buried under a giant pile of shit at work right now that probably ain't gonna let me back on for at least a couple more weeks.

I've been working nights this week.  Hard to do anything other than reset grinding in D2 and then crashing so that I can be to work by 11PM EST.   At least I'll only have to work until 6AM for the last two nights and I'm off duty by Saturday morning.

Just beat the story mode. A little irritated with all the characters they left out from the previous games with no explanation (Salvador, Axton, Gaige, Krieg, Athena, Fiona, Janey Springs, Dr. Zed). Way too much Chris Hardwick talking for my liking. If it's possible for someone to have a punchable voice, Hardwick is that guy.

I couldn't agree more on Hardwick, but I must despise him so badly that my brain didn't even pick up on his voice.

Holy shit - I just Googled who he was in the game. No WONDER I hated the shit out of Vaughn.

I have no idea who Chris Hardwick is, but I HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Vaughn.

Game ain't the same without Scooter.  And it needs more Torgue.  And Tina.  And a DLC where Wainwright Jakobs spends the entire time mocking your enemies.

Tried to solo the Maliwan free DLC on the easiest setup I could do.  Made it to the final boss somehow.  Then got mauled.

The orange drop rate on Mayhem 3 is insane.  I went to my favorite spot on Athenas to collect guns to sell to Marcus so I could buy another bank SDU (next one is gonna cost over $12M).  Went in with 5 guns in my backpack.  After a few runs through, I had 17 additional things stored there, all orange.
