(Super sweet fire-breathing weapon not featured above. Just fire. And guns.)
I'm early yet into my adventures into Borderlands, but I can already foresee one problem that's going to become more and more difficult as cooler and cooler weapons fall into my hands.
When I polished off the first major boss in Borderlands, he dropped a fast-shooting pistol that has a solid chance of lighting the enemy on fire every time a bullet's dislodged from the chamber. In the hours since discovering this handy little weapon, I've come across several firearms that dole out more damage with better accuracy, yet I still haven't given up my trusty fire breather.
Eventually, I'll have to drop it, sure...but only when something cooler comes along. Maybe acid?
