Oh Borderlands how I love your many weapons. But which ones should I choose to carry with me?
One of Borderlands greatest features is the fact that there are so many different weapons scattered across Pandora. There are literally millions of different weapons variations. High acuracy, high damage, fire damage, you name it. With all those weapons and only a small amount of space to carry them, what do you choose?
It is a smart idea to carry both long and short range weapons. Even if you like taking guys out from afar, the battle can turn into close combat real fast. Find yourself a good sniper and and a good shotgun (and everything in between) Having a vast array of different weapons it a smart idea.
It would also be wise to keep weapons that deal the most damage or can do elemental damage. As your level rises and you discover new places you will find that the enemies also have high levels. Higher damage weapons will assist you in defeating these guys. Also weapons that deal elemental damage, such as fire or electricity, will continue to deal damage after the round has been fired.
As for weapons you don’t care for, pick them up if you have the space. Some weapons are worth good money at the vending machines. Or for those who like to keep everything they pick up, check out the DLC called Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot. There you will find a Bank that can be used to store your many items.
Your main objective is to stay alive. You need weapons that are going to help you do so. So be smart with what you carry. It’s all about how you fight but don’t get caught carrying all one type of weapon. That will get you killed fast.
