Based on all the posts so far, I can tell that the 90-10 rule applies to TPS as well (in case you don't know what it is: 90% of all the players abuse 10% of all the available gear). It's a real pity seeing that people choose to run with items like Rosie, Fragnum, or totally gibbed like Ladyfist or the Machine (not available ATM), just because they are believed to be the only ways to play the game.

Just so you guys know: it's not the only way to play TPS. Moreover, you can get a similar (in few cases I dare to suppose even better) damage output and overall efficiency with other, legit and not abused pieces of gear (maybe I'll post more of my builds someday). I know I'll be called a friggin' elitist, GBX a$$-licker or other common Internet complements, but I just want to let you guys know that.

Pistols: Tourge Slappers, Vladof Anarchists
SMGs: Bladed Fridgia, Scav SMGs
Lasers: Maliwan Blasters, Tediore Splitters, Hyperion Beams
Shotguns: Doc's Striker, Casual Flakker, Gentle Party Line, Tourge Ravagers
Sniper Rifles: Vladof Droogs, Maliwan Sniders
Rocket Launchers: any nice Scav launcher
Assault Rifles: Jakobs Gatling Guns
Grenades: Snowball, Vladof Teslas
Oz Kits: Oxidizer, Moonlight Saga, Tourge Juggernauts
Shields: Anshin Adaptive shields, Maliwan Nova shields, Pangolin Turtle shields, Avalanche
I know you have your way of playing and finding the best possible gear for your builds, which is great. Some people are not that into that way of playing, but prefer to be as OP as possible, and have fun that way. It is another great thing about Borderlands, it has room for all these play styles.

Personally, I'm a fan of the 88 Fragnum, Zarpedon's Cyber Eagle, and the Excalibastard.

After having FAR more time to toy around in TPS, I have a few guns to add to that list. Namely: Too Scoops, Ol' Painful, Frostfire (Hey, I was a fan of the Chulainn back in BL2), and Boganella.

After having what I deem to be "Way too much f*cking time" to toy around in TPS, I have a few legendaries/uniques and a few generic weapons to add to the list.

On the legendary/unique side, I can add the Flakker (never thought I'd see that name on a "guns I like", but that thing's saved my a$$ against the Invincible Sentinel), the Mining Laser, and the Longnail to the list.

On the regular weapon side, I love a good Jakobs shotgun and a good Dahl SMG. I'm also partial to Tediore lasers and Hyperion sniper rifles.

I haven't spent that much time in TPS yet, so I haven't tried everything. But this far there is one gun that stands out as my absolute favorite, the Boomacorn shotgun. The multi element projectiles and the awesome sound effects had me sold from the first shot. :biggrin:

What is your favorite gun/item? And what makes it so awesome?
Am I able to pick every gun?

I am enjoying using the ZX-1 laser rifle with Nishas kill skill, that 100% accuracy and the high fire rate that is combined with the double shot chance after reaload is really fun

Best so far for me is the "Torrent" from the mission "Kill Meg". Currently using with aurelia with a dps build; i had no issue killing Felicity with the Torrent (shock)

Building dps with aurelia makes getting crits super op.

My Opinion :smile:

my favourite gun has to be the "fatale", freezing the enemies then shooting their crit spot for insane damage. :cool:
