This game has a smaller rarity scale than the first game...

From what I can remember, Borderlands 1 had White, Green, Blue, Purple, Yellow, Light Orange, Dark Orange, Cyan (Pearlescent).

Though they added Pink (Eridium Tech) weapons in this game.

Wonder why they cut down the rarity scale. Think they'll bring any back with DLC? At least Dark Orange and Pearlescent I'm guessing.

BL2 has White Green Blue Purple orange and eridian, only 1 less, cyan was added with DLC.

It's the same number and we get a new rarity this upcoming DLC.

So I'm not sure how you think it's smaller when it's the exact same size.

I say smaller because "Orange" in the first game had Yellow, Light Orange, and Dark Orange. Unless those were added with DLC, I can't remember. I have a few guns from each of those colors so...

Borderlands 2 just has Orange, and you don't see many from random chests, they're mostly all rare boss drops.

because yellow and light orange were the same guns as dark orange but they were weaker

so it was kinda pointless

they were just lower leveled. Might as well make them all "orange"

You think with DLC we'll start seeing Orange weapons from loot chests? I was finding quite a few from chests in Borderlands 1.

Borderlands 2's Oranges so far seem to only be "legendary boss drops", for the most part.

All of the different shades of orange still counted as orange.

Borderlands 2 will have White, Green, Blue, Purple, Magenta, Orange, Light Pink. Or, perhaps, Magenta, Light Pink, then Orange.

Purple and Magenta belong to the same rarity (Purple, according to badass ranks) minus the fact that Magenta is E-Tech.

Light Pink will be added with Captain Scarlett and her Pirate Booty. It includes new guns and a new commodity called a Seraph Crystal, which may or may not be used to obtain them, I dunno.

An enemy called Seraph Guardians will drop them meaning yeah, those Eridian thingies probably.
Bluh bluh.

Just found my first chest orange, level 36 legendary hunter mod. Completely useless to me but it was a nice surprise.

If you don't want it, I know someone who really really does (hint: it's me!).
