Question about weapon specialization

#1daveslasherPosted 11/20/2012 10:08:06 AM
I just started playing this game last night, i love the first borderlands weapon specialization system. But in this one it seems im free to use subs/pistols/shotguns/launchers without any real penalty. Am i correct?

no weapon specialization in BL2. anyone can use any weapon proficiently. some excel with certain weapons

IE: zer0 has a skill tree for sniping. most of the perks affect all guns, but some are specific to sniper

Badass ranks replaced the skill system. Though it should be mentioned the badass rank system isn't as customizable as it may first appear...

It just makes it so that you can't just put everything into Gun Damage or another trait. Tries to keep it balanced although there are a few things out there that can be exploited.

Also hope your BA ranks don't get wiped out.
