Not to be a downer but, the loot rarely matters in borderlands 2. The loot DOES feel like an afterthought but for the most part they've intentionally designed the game so that the loot is mostly a superficial element. If you want satisfactory weapons you can always do quests from job board, they usually always have a good enough reward in one of them.

Also the drops are level based for certain chests, if you save those special 'chests' to open later you'll get better rewards at higher levels. I ended up saving a bunch just for that purpose.

As far as the people investigating the drops can tell, other than the Golden Chest, every other chest hits the same loot table. (In fact, everything in the entire game hits the same weighted loot table.) Some of them are at least level-based (ie, if you're 39, you'll get a level 39 item), but a level 39 white or green is typically still nothing to get excited over.

And I really don't agree with your statement that the loot really matters. First time I played TVHM with my assassin, it was a fucking GRIND just to get back to Sanctuary, because his weapons were underpowered. With my Commando I farmed the Warrior for awhile to get better stuff, and I cut through the initial two hours like it was butter (admittedly my turret helped a lot, of course.)

I actually stopped playing my Siren because her weapon drops had been so stupendously shit that the areas where I was in made a simple marauder feel like a fucking boss battle. I finally teleported her back to Sanctuary, looted the Golden Chest about five or six times, and the area suddenly became butter.

So I'm going to say that loot definitely DOES matter.
