and level 8 guns that do crazy damage. like the pistol that has infinite bullets, you need to be level 8 to use, and on my level 10 guy, it only does 53 damage. i've seen a vid where it does damage in the thousands to someone who is max level.

my question is, do these people have high ass shields and hp because of their level? or is it hax? weapon damage too.

Higher level gear (and higher rarity) will have higher damage obviously

The high HP and shields will be from a combination of both high levels, rarer high level gear and Badass Ranks

Beat the game last night at 27. I can see how the weapons are so high in damage at higher levels. The gap between level 27 gear and 30 is huge. The warrior dropped level 30 stuff. So did jack.

What you probably saw was an Infinity that required Overpower Level 8, which is actually the same as a level 80 weapon. That would explain the discrepancy in damage that you're describing.

Yeah, that definitely sounds like you mistook OP8 for Level 8. At that point you're throwing out millions of points of damage per second.

The scaling definitely ramps up past level 30. The same goes for UVHM levels at around 50, though the first few levels are relatively forgiving as you make your way into the start of UVHM.

yeah most likely. i noticed the damage in weapons increase a lot per level now that i am level 36. i'm going tvhm right now. what's the max level in this mode? wondering if i can do the whole thing with my dual hard unkempt harolds. both are double penetrating. but they are level 31/33 guns.

50

Do NOT go past 50 if you can help it. You'll have a hell of a time at the start of UVHM if you're level 55-60 and still using level 50 gear. You might be left reloading your save game multiple times until something decent appears in the vendor at Liar's Berg.

NP. On the flipside Gearbox has learned from this. In The Pre-Sequel all vendors across all playthroughs level up with the player. The Items of the Day are also all Blue or better by default, resulting in money actually mattering in that game.
