Finishing up my first playthrough, and I gotta say, I don't know whether to love or hate slag weapons. I'm not saying they're not useful - if anything, they're too useful. In theory, why would I carry incindiary, corrosive, shock weapons at all, when I can just slag the enemy and then lay into them with a powerful non elemental weapon for twice the damage?
The answer, obviously, is to slag the enemy and then further expose them to their main weakness. Slagging bandits and then sending incendiary bullets to their brain is amazing.
But do you think it makes the game far too easy (at least normal mode, not talking vault hunter mode yet, where I assume slag will be NECESSARY)? --- Playing: All games on hold for Borderlands 2 PSN ID: Call_Me_Queequeg
I would judge the game in any way by only considering the first playtrough.
If anything, the first one is just to know the story and game mechanics. The second playtrough is where the game is at. You already know what to do, what you are facing up against, your character is decently leveled, guns are better, etc.
Slag is fine IMO, it doesn't really break the game and it quickly fades from the enemy if you don't shoot it. --- Peelz Isaac Clarke would be a killer in Playstation All-stars
I found an e-tech slag sniper rifle with 2400 atk power at lvl 30 and was so happy because it was way better than my current rifle, then I used it. That thing was a piece of crap and now I stay away from slag guns. When I play Sal I will probably use one for Gunzerking like some people said but other than that hell no.
