This poll is now closed.
Some of you may remember these topics from pre-release. The latest one:

Now that the game has been out for a while, I'd like to compare the two.

Which game, IYO, had better assault rifles?

BL1, if my memory serves me well, had some pretty awesome ARs. The Ogre and the Serpens, for example. In general though, the ARs were pretty monotonous and boring.

BL2 gave guns in general better feels. Every gun "feels" like a gun, if that makes sense. The different manufacturers' styles also really show. That being said, no legendaries felt as amazing as those from BL1.

Thus, my vote goes to BL2. The improvement upon the gun type as a whole outweighs the downgrade in legendaries, IMO.

Borderlands 1 by far. Borderlands 2 does have some okay assault rifles (i.e. Jacobs Triple Barrel and Torgue Spinni Gun) but they are few and far between.

Ajax ogre gets my vote.
They're not going to say no because of the implication.

Borderlands 1 by far. AR's seem to have gotten the shaft this time around. SMGs tend to have a higher rate of fire, faster reloads, do more damage and clip size is roughly the same (except for Bandits obviously). And Maliwan and Hyperion don't even make any, I mean how sick would've a Hyperion AR with a laser beam accuracy have been? I almost never use them, unless it's a Vladoff (or E-Tech). I can see if they did more damage then an SMG but for the most part they don't. Jackobs (single shot, really?) and Dahls are pretty much useless with a Gunzerker as well.

I voted for 2, based it as a whole rather than one or two pearlescents from BL1.

They may be outclassed by smg's but I think as an entire group they are better than what I found in BL1 pearls and legendaries not withstanding

Even looking past the awesome BL1 legendary ARs, there were awesome ARs to be had.

This took a perfect parts roll, but I'm glad I found it:

But even beyond that, there were plenty of regular ARs that you could use at 69.

With very few exceptions, any BL2 AR worth using on 2.5 has either red text with it or it consumes two rounds of ammo. And even those are not much better than passable on 2.5.
