I'm at level 25 and have yet to get a sniff of any kick butt orange weapons (specifically looking for sniper rifles). I'm an obsessive completionist when it comes to games/levels. What am I missing?

They should be able to get that since they basically paid in advance for all additional downloadable content.

Gearbox just might be one of those companies that do a lot for their customers... in the past. Sometimes success brings cockiness and companies forget where they came from (blizzard). I am not accusing them of being that way yet but I have been burned too many times by trusting game companies due to their past tendencies.
The season pass is for 4 DLC that will normally cost $10 each, it's actually a good deal. The mechromancer was always said to be a pre-order bonus. Again, if you missed out that's your fault. It's still probably worth it if that's the kind of class you want to play. Personally I find the idea behind it and the skill trees stupid so I don't care even though I'm getting it.

Gearbox is awesome, every year they give out free pizza to 1000+ people that go to their panel at PAX. In 2011 they gave out BL2 for free and this year the season pass.

Plus this is just ****ing awesome:

Play with more people. You will rarely get orange guns solo. The higher level you are the better chance though.

Thats really disappointing to see then. Unless you have a friends list of people who play the game and are reliable people (I don't) you're stuck playing with pugs who have zero interest in letting anyone else but themselves pick up all the available loot.

I managed to get great guns in BL1 playing solo, I'd really hate for this game to be based almost entirely on playing with a group to get the same.

Being a higher level is what your missing.

Makes sense. I suppose the better stuff doesn't kick in until levels 40-50.

I would say keep doing what you are doing. It appears to me that it is just the luck of the draw since I have had 3 different orange weapons drop all before level 25 while playing solo. I also got one playing in a group around level 10 and another at level 30.

- Ninja Turtles (use a gross pizza to lure out 4 mutants named after each turtle and 1 for splinter)
- Top Gun (When you destroy a bandit camp's volleyball court 3 "shirtless men" in aviator shades come out and attack)
- South Park (Loading screen - something about if you don't have ammo "You're going to have a bad time")

Haven't found it myself yet, but there's also a good Minecraft one that comes with creepers that drop legendary loot.

Same, I got a legendary grenade mod (the MIRV one that does 10 child grenades and then does it for another 10) from the ammo machine outside the crimson raiders place in Sanctuary. This was at level 15 or 16. Its the same grenade mod you can get early in game from the 2 mini bosses at the entrance to claptrap's ship. Haven't seen any other rares since, but if I really wanted to I could just keep killing Scorch until it gave me its legendary SMG (since I'm a sniper though, there's no rush).

He did lol

They're huge fans of Breaking Bad, there's tons of other little easter eggs

One of the head skin for Salvador is ''Breaking Bald''

First game that I've legitimately enjoyed in quite some time. I've been avoiding multiplayer, my one friend already beat it and is level 50, and I can't stand having him tell me what to do. Not to mention he's always duping and wanting to power level, which drives me nuts.

apparently a lot of people had this problem with the new patch. I heard that it was supposed to be a punishment to people who tried to cheat on getting golden keys but affected more people or something(don't quote me). I haven't had a problem.

Also, <3 Gaige. 2 bullet magazine shotgun and 150 Anarchy stack at level 8 just ripped through everything so far. That and with D374-TP I don't have to worry about rakks or anything flying(they always knocked me off ledges while fighting other enemies ).

It is very difficult. I just tried by myself for 30 minutes and got to a super badass and it wouldn't spawn into Vermivorous. Not happy.
