Weapon/Medic Shops are useless

You know its true.

I have yet to this day found 1 item worth buying from the gun/medic shops minus Skins.

What happened? these shops are only good for selling stuff now.

BL1 I used to find good stuff to buy all the time.

This is my only complaint so far.

Money is spent on ammo and gambling that is it and dieing.

I rarely found much worth buying in EITHER game. Most my money went to SDUs in BL1...

I've seen the occasional really good shield, or nice rocket launcher in the shops, but it's mostly fodder. Although, upon starting PT2, I was spending a fortune at the shops to fast track my survivability; Because, once you start PT2, you quickly realize all your gear sucks.

I've found plenty of good blues and purples in the vending machines.

they're not useless, they're good for selling stuff :3

I'm still surprised that there's no secret vendor like there was in BL1. No secret themed room either. :(

Eiher that, or they're REALLY well hidden.

What's done is done, it feels so bad. What once was happy now is sad.
I'll never love again. My world is ending.

Not useless at all. I normally check them whenever there's one nearby, and every now and then, they offer a good item or two. Maybe not at lvl 50, but at least while leveling. That's all I need really.

I do not suffer from insanity. I enjoy every second of it.

I found a good one. For me at least. It was an assault rifle with +50% melee damage. I'm playing as Zer0.

BL1's shop was vastly superior in items offered.

BL1's shop actually offered oranges from time to time, where BL2 you barely see blues.
