How do you think they'll fix rocket launchers?

We all know they sucked in the first Borderlands. They were the most ineffective and most useless, right next to pistols. They need to do a lot more damage probably have a bigger damage radius too. *kisses master race SMG*

The Helix Launchers were actually pretty awesome. Especially with Brick. And after you learn the reload trick, you can fire some even faster than automatic weapons.

Faster travel time, maybe knockback effect, larger proc size would all be nice.

3D explosions, as opposed to the 2D ones that the enemies can just walk in front of and be perfectly fine.

Is tc joking? Neither lawn chairs nor any type of pistols sucked.

Judging from the gameplay videos, they improved the hit detection and increased the damage.
The only other problem launchers had was when some minute amount of cover would completely negate the damage.

One time I went and used one of the multi-rocket launchers and fired it at a huge wave of attacking enemies. >_> Should have just pulled out one of my other weapons instead since it would have had better results. I hope they make those things meaningful this time. An overpowered rocket launcher may be a bit too much to ask for but I'd at least like something that won't make me dread it being my last weapon on hand that I can shoot something with.

Reality can throw you some curve balls that statistics can't predict. Best be prepared for them. :)

You obviously haven't found a Masher revolver in the first game TC

I mean holy ****, an Unforgiven Masher is just scary, especially on my Mordecai.

Welp he thinks smgs aka the most OP, easiest to spray and pray, are the best. Obviously he's gonna dislike weapons that take skill to use.

I'm guessing he was referring to the repeater pistols, not revolvers.
