You guys are hilarious…

Once I unlocked Axton's beard, the game got a lot sexier:

I'm also really digging some of the gun manufacturer skins. I unlocked a sweet Torgue one with all the checkers that makes my Zer0 look like a formula 1 race car driver. I'll take a pic and post it later tonight.

That's the one I'm rocking on my Salvador. It looks great on him with a bowler hat.

I don't always shoot guns, but when I do, I make it a Vladof.

Speaking of Vladof, I like their skins the best. Grays and blacks with a nice red hammer and sickle.

I used my first Gold Key and received a purple SMG and a purple sniper rifle (I'm lvl 25):

And here's a link to my favorite shotgun so far, minor spoilers.

I'm really enjoying the Gunzerker with two shotguns and all of my points dumped into the Gunzerking ability. I'm fighting a lot more machines lately and wishing I could find a caustic weapon!

Wynd, that's an E-tech assault rifle. Veddy nice. I just got my first E-tech sniper rifle last night.

Oops, yeah assault rifle! I haven't found a single useful SMG actually so I forgot the distinction!

I'm a little underwhelmed with E-Tech so far. Instead of being a clear advantage they seem oddly scaled to the regular weapons you find. At least stat-wise.

EDIT: Although...

Spoiler:

I've been sick for the past few days and it got bad enough I actually took a sick day yesterday. I was so out of it that I amused myself for a good hour running around Sanctuary, shooting at people with an E-Tech dart pistol and making it look like they had bloody flatulence. It was HIL-A-Rious... at the time. I'm better now and a bit ashamed of how much I giggled.

Ugh, I'd do so many dirty nasty things for either of those guns on my 'zerker

I've fallen heavily in love with Dahl and Vladof snipers - high RoF and accuracy, usually more than 9 or 10 rounds in the clip - feels like a sewing machine when Gunzerking

I don't like the Dahl sniper rifles, though they tend to look good. The burst fire when zoomed is pointless as the stuff should die in one shot, and so it's a waste of precious sniper rifle ammo.

Personally my favorite guns are Jakobs, though they unfortunately don't tend to have an elemental effect. They mostly just do a crap ton of damage. The Law pistol has been my favorite by far. It's accurate enough to snipe with.

I second the Jacobs' love. My goto weapon for a long time was a Jacobs Fast Law and I only recently replaced it. I have also been rocking a Maliwan sniper with corrosive damage that was able to two shot the bots in The Overlook that people were talking about earlier. I found that it seems to be more effective to go for two limb joints when fighting them instead of the eye. Usually ended up being two shot kills to three shot kills with the same rifle.

Seems like the washing machines in the HQ in Sanctuary have a really high Eridium drop rate; I seem to get one or two bars each time I open them. Or it could just be coincidence.

The washing machines always seem to have shotgun ammo for me. To me it seems like Varkid piles are very high in Eridium drops.

The slot machines at Moxxi's are also a good place to get Eridium as well as guns. I usually spend my spare cash there so I don't have to worry about losing it during missions.

PSA: BL2 bug that wipes badass rank. Affects all 3 platforms.

Everytime I see that head I think of Matthew McConaughey's character in Reign of Fire.

Yikes. Hope they can get that fixed and restore stuff to folks.

2 new customizations I just found:

I like the bandit one, think I'll run with it for a while.

I normally like to roll with a good shotty, melee, and an Aurora shield, but I got this last night as a reward for finishing a side mission for Hyperion. It also penetrates multiple targets.

The only downside to it is that I had to buy a boatload of storage deck upgrades to get more sniper ammo.

Had my first all-GWJer four player experience today. Hilarious Goliath-kiting for the win!

Tossed a few bucks in the slot machine, and it finally came up with 3 vault symbols, and coughed up a legendary. On reload, you toss the launcher (it is a Tediore, after all). The launcher then starts hopping around like a rabbit on meth, spawning a grenade on each hop.

That rabbit is dynamite?

Damn that's a sexy rocket launcher. Jealous.

Sorry for bailing on you, Evilseed and Iaintgotnopants, with such little warning. Someone unexpectedly came by the house.

Ok.. I just meet Tiny Tina. It's a refreshing characters.. wow!

I've been wondering what kind of loot would result from 3 vault symbols. I always suspected it would be something really good. Now I know. I also know that, for whatever reason, I have utterly sh*tty luck regarding loot in BL2. I've dumped tens of thousands of dollars into the slot machines, and the best I've gotten is a few blues, not to mention that I still have not seen an orange on either of my 3 characters.

Despite the sh*tty luck with loot, I'm still having fun, although the desire to start playing Torchlight 2 is rising.

Your ship will eventually come in. And if it's any consolation, I have been going back and forth between TL2 and BL2. Die a humiliating death in one? Fire up the other. Rinse, repeat. They both scratch a similar itch.

That's interesting because I found a totally different Torgue skin, also for Zero. It has yellow and green in it.

Yeah, there are definitely more than one for some of the manufacturers. I've 2 different ones for both Torgue and I think Tediore.
