I don't get the bl2 loot complaints. Legendary named stuff fell very rarely, but everything else was great, I thought. it only felt grindy if you tried to farm legendaries.
No, it wasn't. Not compared to BL1. In BL1, guns could drop with wacky, crazy modifiers all the time, absolutely leading to one-of-a-kind guns. In BL1, I got lucky, and a x3 Acid gun dropped at like level 6. I had an absolute blast melting shit for the next 20 levels. And you'd see hundreds, if not thousands of different varieties before similarities started showing up.
In BL2, there were basically only ~ 30 guns, and they just dropped with slightly different stats all the time. And the only really unique / fun ones were the legendary ones, which never fucking dropped. The fact that they had to put in a loot box chest so players could get level-appropriate weapons shows you just how terrible the drop rates were.
BL2's loot system is fucking garbage. BL is only fun when you're mowing down hordes of guys left and right. When your weapons are so shit that every single mook takes 20 seconds to kill, the entire game turns into a giant, slow grind. Guess which of the two games suffered from that?
