Hyperion guns are crap, because their default accuracy is too bad. To make them worthwhile you need something with a LOT of ammo (i.e. a machine gun, but I haven't yet seen a Hyperion machine gun), or a sniper rifle (they just sway a lot in ironsights)
I've yet to find anything decent though. Struggled rescuing Roland because I didn't have any corrosive, explosive or shock elemental weapons. Eventually just spammed this infinite-ammo pistol I had after dying twice.
Haven't even found any slag weapons yet! I went 10 levels before I found an SMG. ._.
Well, I've always been a fan of high-accuracy guns (because let's face it, what point is there wasting bullets trying to shoot a bandit if they all miss?) especially since I prefer sniping from distance, but I'm also a huge fan of elemental weapons and my Hellfire SMG is omgomgomgomgomg.
The guns all look a lot different in Borderlands 2 though, so I may end up trying other guns just because of the different aesthetics. Some of Maliwan's stuff just looks plain ugly, for example. I'm also a fan of the Tediore 'walmart' description so I'll probably find amusement in throwing a full-clip disposable gun at people for the lulz. despite it probably wasting all the ammo I'd have.
Mmmmm, that sounds like fun. Super accurate AND elemental? Lethal. I'm not going to use the key til after any and all level cap increases come out.
Well, apparently the guns you get from the golden chest are purple-tier guns ... I'd recommend waiting until level 50 to unlock it, but that's just me.
And I've made my mind up. I'm totally rocking Hyperion and Maliwan guns, though I'll probably use everything else just to see what pops up.
Well, the only thing that matters is Gaige, I suppose the Premiere Club items are just meh.
Well, there are only two video game shops in my town; GameStation and HMV. GameStation was sold out of pre-orders ... I got lucky at HMV. I don't know what I'm going to get, other than the game and I got a poster (which I finally put up today when I got some blu-tack for it). o-o
There should be something equivalent there. Gearbox has a list. Gaige =3
I'm in the UK. No gamestop here.
I'll find out on the Friday when I get my xbox copy whether I have codes for Gaige or not.
From what I understand, what edition the game is under doesn't matter, so long as it's from Gamestop or equivalent.
On the PC version: yes, because I pre-ordered it on Steam. (though apparently it unlocks on FRIDAY? WTF, Valve.)
On the Xbox version: not sure. likely no, because I could only pre-order the 'regular' version as all the limited edition/vault hunter edition ones were sold out by the time I found somewhere to pre-order it.
... I only wanted Gaige, anyway.
