When I went to the Torgue vending machine using Torgue tokens to buy a Torgue Double Penetrating Unkempt Harold, the very few times it showed up, it didn't have a Torgue grip on it.
I think I farmed that machine over 50 times to get one with a Torgue grip, as the stats are better (i.e., 2.3 Reload time). I would have liked to buy the first one I saw, go to Marcus' store to buy a Torgue pistol grip, modify the gun, and save myself 3 hours of farming in the process.
I don't care how, loot drops, vending machines, breaking down owned guns, a weapon parts store, special character skills, etc., etc. It would be nice to modify the weapons, especially the scopes.
I like that idea. Parts like capacitors scopes ect could be dropped, bought or rewarded. It would be cool for this system to allow the player to alter weapons their own way. Like adding a capacitor to a Jakobs, or giving individual guns parts or accessories not normally found on a manufactured one, (Such as giving an Elephant the accessory allowing the Skookum prefix for example).Maybe aftermarket could be a manufacturer, only applying to weapons altered in this way. They could have rarity for parts, and maybe even legendary parts or E-Tech Fins to make stuff crazy. Its an amazing but ambitious idea, which is the very reason it will likely not appear in a future title.
What is a man?! A miserable little pile of secrets!
How can you ruin a random loot system in which 99% of what you find is total crap?
99% total crap? come on now. you are sounding like the sort who refuses to give anything under orange the time of day
there is a difference between a gun being crap (which implies that it is totally unusable) and it not being the best gun in the game.
you sound like you want all of the best stuff but are annoyed that there is effort involved in attaining these items.
if that's the case, you might as well just have it duped for you.
being able to easily construct perfect loot in a game designed around a huge variety of random loot destroys the premise of the game. why would anyone bother with random loot if they can just go ahead and construct perfect gear.
you could always get the PC version and a gear constructor and make everything you want that way.
but you are talking about taking the looting out of a loot based game. i just wont work without changing a core concept of the game
Crazy? Crazy with low prices on Wind Brahmin. You buy one!!
