Does anyone else think Blue quest rewards are better than Orange's?

Spent some time getting lvl 50 Blue quest rewards and have to admit, I am having more fun with some of the better Blue loot compared to Orange stuff.

Mind siting a few examples? I admit there's some where there's no Orange equivalent but I can't think of any where the Blue (technically Unique) is better than the Orange.

These are not better in terms or damage output or whatever, they are guns that I simply have fun using (all lvl 50); -

Moxxi Rubi
Lascaux
Heartbreaker
Evil Smasher (if you know why???)
Redundant Fibber (Game breaking but fun)
Gwens Head
Teeth of Terra
Orphan Maker (Especially when used with Salvador + Rubi + Flame of Firehawk)
Teapot
Chulainn
Scorpio
Buffalo Sniper
Morning Star

There are probably more but I can't think right now.

I get bored seeing everyone use the same old Oranges all the time and wanted to see and experience something different.

I hardly have any purple stuff (apart from Love Thumper and Lite Bone Shredder) as I believe Blue should be rated higher than Purple.

A lot of the blue rewards are pretty fantastic, especially Moxxi weapons.

Fun = Make me super strong and near-invincible?

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

No, not at all. Apart from the Fibber I guess.

Some of the Blues are nowhere near good enough to be considered 'super strong' or 'invincible' when compared to Oranges like the DP Herald, CC or Infinity etc.

They just have random fun elements that are cool to play around with

it just depends on the weapon. ive thought this from the beginning of the game.

there are some oranges that are amazing, and some that are kinda meh.

this same thing goes for blues. there are some with incredible unique effects that outclass many oranges.

i always kinda laughed at the people who looked at anything other than orange as unusable. they are limiting themselves and depriving themselves from using a ton of really fun items.

a game that has 87 bazillion guns and people only want to use 30 or 40 of them? seems silly.

cool to see other people exploring the use of and benefits of non orange items. im sure that there are more gems out there that nobody has even tapped the full potential of yet

I mostly use blues/greens/purples. The game feels empty when you're overpowered.

The Lascaux is awesome. I'm wondering how it scales. I'm currently level 44 on PT2 and wondering if it will scale to 50 prior to PT2.5.
