I'm very much looking forward to something new, so this is coming at a good time. I've run Moxxi's DLC into the ground.
LOL, as I was reading your comment I started to wonder if I had typed this, because that's exactly what I did. I started at high/medium settings that I manually chose and decided it didn't look very impressive. I'm running at 2K res, switched to the max default and then set render res to 75%. You can see the ugliness from the render res change, but it does now have all of the visual effects so the graphics look fancier. I completely agree with the game requiring more power than is necessary. I initially took this approach with DOOM Eternal (high settings, not ultra whatever), then I switched to the highest preset and told it I wanted 100 FPS and it does an excellent job at meeting those requirements and running super smooth. I think I can see the resolution downsampling in DOOM, it's just not as noticeable as BL3's and BL3's isn't dynamic so seems to be very inferior.BL3's graphics don't justify the horsepower needed to achieve them IMO. At the same time, I also feel the different settings also provide noticeable results when they're bumped. Not enough to justify the performance hit in many cases, but they do offer substantial gains. I ended up just cranking everything up all the way and lowered the render resolution 'til the benchmark never drops below 60. That was the best compromise I could devise.
I found that most of the legendaries aren't particularly noteworthy. About 1/4 of them are truly worthwhile. The others feel like they just came out of a stat/effect randomizer. In at least a few cases they'll end up nerfing the really good ones into the ground, too.
Having done nearly everything there is to do up until now, I still haven't found anything better than an Atlas assault rifle with 2x damage. They don't drop super often with 2x damage, but when they do, look out. They're essentially a full-auto sniper rifle with no recoil and a massive magazine. Just hold down the trigger and watch things disintegrate. The auto-tracking alternate fire is just a distraction. Best one I've found is 1300 x 2 damage so far.
You can delete those 3 mp4 files from the game directory (wherever you placed your game/borderlands3/oakgame/content/movies)
and I see that there are 2 new files;
I delete them to get rid of the logo's, but the added benefit is that you can tell if there was an update if the movies re-appear after you deleted them. For some strange reason they always put them back on an update.
Couldn’t get that top one to work, anyone else have luck? Thanks for the post!
The vending machhines will only sell legendaries until april 2nd so grab em while you can.
With a specific combo of mods and shields I managed to get my shield ranking above 60,000. Although my health is at 1 . I'm also invincible for the first 4 seconds after it gets depleted. Not bad, although I'm still not sure some of those things actually mean much. Feels like certain attacks and enemies still take my shield totally out almost immediately. I'm also not sure about that 4-second thing in spite of what the gear claims. 4 seconds is a pretty long time after you see the "glass break" effect and I've still ended up in FFYL quite a few times.
