If I need a good weapon any time in playthrough 1 then I'll use it, if not I'll just wait til the 2nd and use it once i reach Sanctuary. It's only a purple item anyways might not even be a gun for all we know.
I don't even know how the sharing system works so I just figured that other people were assuming it would be in because it was in the first game or something.
No, no, no. It WASN'T in the first game. It has been confirmed to be in the second.
Oh ok then! So I guess that means that no one knows how it works lol
Watch the gameplay vids with Randy Pitchford commenting(The Maya/Axton and unveiling of Mecromancer). He has stated that there is a storage box that is shared between all characters. You put in an item, any of your cahracters can use it. It's pretty straightforward "how" it will work.
