    Solo. Probably go with Amara as I don't like sticking with a character thats popular in online games. That way if I do group up we have a good party and not 4 FL4K's

    Maybe FL4K for solo play and Amara for grouping? I've heard she's not so great solo. FL4K, on the other hand, is great at it due to the pet (who can also rez you) and his many sources of health regeneration/stealth if you go that route. Just something to think about.

    Looking at past games it's often the one that is weaker at the start that becomes the more powerful around level 40+.. minus Salvator who is just the strongest class they've done full stop. Plus, at later game the legendaries totally change things with skill synergy. I doubt anyone really knows what the strongest combos are yet, even the developers.

    I'm going to play Amara first because she's the one I like the look of the least. I decided to be backwards about it for... fun.

    Salvador just plays an entirely different game than everyone else in Borderlands 2. He was ridiculous. I hope none of the BL3 characters are that much better than the rest of the cast.

    I don't really have a problem with it. The mixed balancing is part of what makes the game more fun and the loot more satisfying to me.

    Every class can do fine... but, yeh, with Salvador I was soloing some Raid bosses without using glitches. It wasn't easy, at all, but it's pretty much impossible for most of the other classes. There's exceptions though, like using Zer0s Bore skill with that sniper from the hammerlock DLC (I forget it's name). You could, literally, kill raid bosses solo in about 5 seconds. He was definitely the best boss killer, if you had the right loot.

    Axton is my favorite. There was a lot you can do with a fully buffed shooty turret. You just can't do it very fast. Salvador is crazy OP though. When I can't do a boss or mission on my own I have my kid join me on Salvador.

    "his many sources of health regeneration/stealth if you go that route" You...you used the wrong pronoun. YOU MONSTER!!! REEEEEEE!!!

    On a serious note, FL4K does look like a great choice for solo players and a lot of the people who have played the game already have pretty much stated the same. I like pet based classes so my first play through (when BL3 comes out on Steam) will be with FL4K.

    I figured either Moze or FL4K for my first playthrough, but probably FL4K cause I love pet classes. So far the game is looking good, so I just have to be patient for a few weeks to make sure 2K doesn't add some shitty monetization in post-release.

    I was quite happy to play Borderlands when it was not on Steam, most people posting here play MMOs which when they began were not on steam. On the other hand do I use Epic, no.

    I am keeping an eye on this one, but will probably wait for a big discount.

    I just got the game- n the game has bugs on pc- maybe that’s why they are holding out for steam, with the toxic reviews n forums etc...

    On a side note after an hour I went back to my other games- the game n story feels boring n lifeless...not sure why. I’ll give it a couple of more hours, but Iam not impressed so far.

    As a massive Borderlands fan the game is exactly what I wanted. More variety in builds and loot, same humour, slight improvements all over really. I'll put 100s of hrs into it so money well spent.

    It's easily a 10/10 for me.

    The only thing that bothers me so far is that the big map rotates to the direction you're facing when you open it.. and there's no north indicator on it. It's just a little annoying for me is all.

    Yeah, the 3D map is a little annoying. Having a good time so far, overall. Will play more over the weekend.

    I went with Fl4K I tried Amara, Moze, and Fl4k last night. Amara isn't really my playstyle. Moze was good but her Mech is terrible. Seemed to get stuck a lot. You think they would have designed around that. Enjoying Fl4k though. Only early on. Going to not make him a sniper. I hate snipers in FPS

    Glad you are enjoying FL4K! I'm having a good time with Moze. I just tend to spawn the mech into more open area engagements to avoid any issues. It's only up every 90s so I tend to just think of it as an oh shit button in larger fights more than anything else right now. It requires a lot of point investment to really be more than that and points are precious in the early levels, so I'm not putting anything into it right now.

    I am sure that is what i was doing wrong as well. Iron Bear is probably meant to be more of, get out of jail free card, but I was using it whenever i could. I am just not patient haha

    I'm really enjoying Amara. With the right skill a portion of all weapon damage becomes elemental and you're spreading DoTs all over the place... and you don't even have to use an elemental gun. Pair it with explosive and the spread skill and you just melt faces.
