I certainly hope not. I never played online because of this. I don't understand how anyone could enjoy playing the game with nearly infinite shields and a one shot gun. Boring... Also, it defeats half the point of the game, which s searching for better and better guns.
Space Penguins From mars Consume Human flesh. ( It tatses good.)
Since modding weapons last game had to do with hacking your save file, perhaps gearbox should set up servers dedicated to only storing gamers' save files. Save information is only loaded into system cache to load the game. in game saves write back to online servers.
Although it will suck when servers go down and you cant play.....
