Ok guys so I started as a Commando (with the turret). I'm absolutely loving the sniper and smg (as I did in the first game). Going through the skills, it looks like you can only increase the AMMO for AR's as the Commando. Or did they bring the purchasable ammo increases back? (Only played to level 6, with the BIG CANNON)
Also, is there a class this time around that specializes in Sniper/SMG? I kind of assumed it would be the guy that uses the sword but I don't want my special ability to be stabbing people...
Really enjoying this game so far =)! Can't wait until my friends get it on Friday once they get paid, also for anyone contemplating buying Borderlands 2 I say it's well worth it!

Really though in this game, even without the trait bonuses, any class can use any gun just fine. My commando mostly rolls with non elemental pistols. I just like the way Vladof pistols roll. Besides, I don't need much of a weapon when I turret hump everything to death anyway.
I also rolled a commando... mainly because of how amazingly awesome they will be once you max out every tree.
Two turrets... that set off a mini nuke each when deployed... that have an extra turret ontop of the turrets you already have... with missile pods...
I think it's pretty obvious by now that Handsome Jack will go down as the single greatest video game villain of all-time. He's memorable, he's hilarious, and you hate his guts at the same time. I have yet to hear him speak without laughing at least a little bit.
Yes Handsome Jack is great...one of many great characters. For how shallow (in a good way imo) the story is in the Borderlands series is it sure does have some incredibly memorable characters and (hilariously) amazing dialogue.
I don't understand half of these posts, "combat hasn't changed" what were you expecting? it shouldn't change! the improvements that have been made were all that was needed a sequel shouldn't vastly change so that you don't recognise the game...
No new vehicles? maybe wait until you've actually played most of the game - because, you know, there are...
Some of the criticism i'm reading is really retarded..
I've been playing the slot machines alot in Moxxi's, and here's what I observed the rewards to be:
Bandit head X 3 = Active grenade thrown at you
Bell X 3 = Lots of money
7 X 3 = Vladof or Tediore player skin
Single Eridium bar X 3 = 4 Eridium
Double Eridium bar X 3 = 8 Eridium
Triple Eridium bar X 2 = 16 Eridium
Cherry X 3 = Uncommon (green) weapon
Leg X 3 = Rare (blue) weapon
Marcus X 3 = Epic (purple) weapon
Vault X 3 = Legendary (orange) weapon

Butt Stallion has me laughing quite often. HJ is a great bad guy reminiscent of Glad0s and Cave Johnson.
I love everything they changed and kept the same. It feels familiar yet fresh. Now if I could only join my wife's game (or vise versa) then it would be perfect.
On that note, I found a revolver that has zero recoil when ADS with a scope. Talk about critical hit spam. Also I have a Tediore rocket launcher that holds 6 rounds, shoots 2 at once and when you reload it, instead of throwing it out and it exploding, it launches forward like another rocket.
Yup, brb. Going to stop everything and go play.
On a more serious note, has anyone found a good use for the Gunzerker? I probably just don't have enough traits into anything that buffs his special, but it seems useless to me. Sure it's decent burst, but sloppy reloading and forced micromanagement of your weapons to make sure you're pulling the right one's out during the ability. Not to mention it's basically vomiting out already scarce ammo.
(I normally play commando, but he's on a file with a few people who haven't been able to play in a few days. Messing around with other characters. Making a Zer0 as we speak.)

Zero is so fucking awesome. I can't wait to unlock the final skill in his Bloodshed tree. Use Deception, instantly kill an enemy with melee thanks to Execute, instantly go back into Deception, rinse and repeat. Oh yes, and I get healed, regen shields, and gain increased gun damage, melee damage, and run speed.
Sooo deliciously OP.
The best part is the eridium, really.
