Additional Borderlands 2 Classes Confirmed

Randy Pitchford tweets a response to a question about whether players can expect more classes for Borderlands 2, considering the success of the mechromancer DLC for the role-playing shooter sequel (thanks nin). For those unwilling to read through his entire answer, the indication is that there is indeed reason to be optimistic that they still plan on adding additional characters to the game. For those interested in the nuance, here's an exact quote of his reply: "yes."

I was afraid "True Vault Hunter" mode wouldn't be doable in singleplayer, but as it turns out my Commando is doing pretty well. Every fight is a serious affair though, and once I reach the level cap I'm afraid not having a level advantage over the last enemies will make it a major slog or even nigh impossible.

It's not impossible, it just takes a really, really good weapon to make it easy. When you reach 50 pretty much everything else stays at 48-49. It's only a few monsters that go to 50, and then some bosses go to 51 or 52.

It's eminently doable if you have good weapons. Failing that, an Engineer build will work great. I had one that had a 35% bonus to cooldown, plus 5 on the first turret skill making it ten (so it fired 10 extra rounds and stayed for an additional 20 seconds), plus 4 on the skill that makes you do extra damage while the turret is up, and then another plus 5 (making it 10) on the skill that reduces the cooldown for the turret.

So I was able to crank out a shielded, slag and rockets firing turret about every 20 seconds. That helped me get through pretty much everything. Even if it died, I just hid for a bit and it could get back up in no time flat.

Of course, I had to get this mod from the golden chest, since the game would NEVER drop anything of this kind. In fact, throughout the entirety of TVHM, I saw less FEWER than ten purple drops and no oranges. So for 50 levels, my turret guy found 2 orange weapons. One at level 4 and one at level 18ish.

Woot, Gearbox... :\
