Re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

Anyone had issues of not showing Golden Keys even after entering the codes? I've got one friend who said she is only showing Five Keys while I have 12...and we've entered the same codes and did the same pre-order.

Also...does anyone know if your Bank Stash is shared with other characters...I can't find any info on it. I know we had a way in BL1...then the small Loot Shared Stash pole/beacon where you could move over like 4-5 items from one character to another in BL2.

And finally...we think we're close to...but we've started getting the Character Mods but not a slot for them. We landed and did a lot on Promethea last night but is there a mission that grants you that slot or you have to be a certain level?

for the golden keys, once you enter code you got to go to in game email and then redeem them. i saw the same 0 keys thing after entering a bunch of codes (even for Early Adopters pack keys) and then went into email and redeemed them. i have 13 or so now...

In the menu for shift codes, it shows 8 keys for me, but when I'm next to the chest, in parenthesis, it shows only one key.

You actually have to click on the key notification thing in the social tab for the keys to be redeemed. If you have 8 keys, you have to click it 8 times. Stupid ass system, TBH

No, I definitely did that, which is why it does say "8" keys in my shift menu, on the bar on top (with no rewards left to be redeemed). It's just when I'm on the Sanctuary ship, next to the chest, the icon next to the prompt to open the chest has only one key.

Because you are only using one key to open it. Not all that you have collected.

Okay - think I was confused as in BL2, it showed all the keys you had, instead of just one, right?

Iíve played aboit 25 hours so far, and while the dialogue makes me roll my eyes sometimes, in general itís not been as bad as some people are saying. Seemed like people were just being overly dramatic about it.

Then I found Killavolt and I totally get it. Donít know what the devs were thinking with this guy.

Otherwise I am loving this game. It is checking all the boxes. Just great.

Actually, $1 per bullet costs less than buying rounds from the vending machines, not by much, but enough to make a difference. Of course there's the free rounds you pick up here and there, but like I said, those don't seem to be as plentiful as they were in BL2.

Definitely not as plentiful, which I feel mainly on boss battles, and bosses feel pretty tough this go around, esp. when playing solo. I wish at least when you upgraded your ammo capacity Marcos would top you off to the new max.

Yeah, I just had a fight with multiple "badasses" at the end of a side-mission, and I ran out of 3 types of ammo, and had to die on purpose in order to backtrack to a vending machine to fill up on ammo and finish the fight.

Yeah this really shouldn't happen, esp. when bosses/badasses etc. take SO many bullets. Love the game, but it does take away little with the "millions and millions of guns" -- but ammo, not so much.

I made the mistake of spending almost all my cash increasing ammo capacity in all my weapons as much as possible, only to realize right after that I would have to fill them and the machine said it would cost like $5K more than I had left over to do that. Doh. And right, like someone said earlier, way more health packs, which I rarely if ever need.

I will say the ability for coop partner or even yourself to jump on Moze's mech and shoot stuff is great.

I love FL4K and his array of pets. Had no idea they stay with you whole time. Really is big help. I use the Spiderant that shoots toxic shit. I named him OldBoy. He’s a good little Spiderant...

Re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

I've only been playing for a couple nights (BB Sucks!), and have already ran into the ammo problem. I think the problem early is I'm level 4 or 5, but so far have only found shotguns and pistols. I go into a area and run out of one type of ammo, and then I'm forced to use the other one up or hope I get some back from enemies to switch back to the other gun.

It will be like that until you get to around lvl 10

I know, I have all these free Level 10 guns, I canít use yet. Really want to use that relentless Puma I got. Seems like my type of gun...

Yep...as Deftones said...it's been that way with everyone...including my bunch I play with who complained about the ammo and weapons from the start. Just keep a good assortment you can fall back on and rotate around....when you finally make it to Sanctuary, it all opens up with carrying three guns (getting better ones also) and expanding the capacity....one word of advice; pick up any and everything you can and sell it....don't overlook White Items because sometimes they have more value than Greens and Blue; depends on the Weapons. Grenades, Shields and Pistols fetch the less. You'll need money and not the eridium (Crazy Earl) for the extra space.....

Re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

I've got a bug now where I no longer can hear any main dialog. All mission/side mission dialog I can only read the subtitles. I can still hear the random character dialog when people walk by you and all other sound is working like normal. I've reloaded, turned the game on/off and nothing will fix it.

Whoops, I waited too long to pick up and Best Buy canceled my preorder. Oh well, I'll pick it up down the line once there is a good sale. That allows for plenty of time for patches too.

I got to level 10 or so with Zane, and found him incredibly annoying. Whenever he got blasted with fire or something he sounded like he was orgasming all over. Running was just as bad. I switched over to Moze, only about level 3 right now, but her mech seems like it will be cool.

Re: Borderlands 3 (9/13/2019: PC, PS4, XB1, Stadia)

Anyone else finding this game WAY harder than previous Borderland games?

Like, I'm at level 15, and I only have two available missions (so no chance to upgrade until after I finish these), both missions are labeled as "level 15" missions, and they're easy enough to get through, but the bosses for each is an unkillable (for me) level 18! And I can't grind to get to their level. So I'm pretty much stuck. This sucks!

Are you doing the challenges in each area? Those give you a ton of experience. There are usually 5 or 6 in every map. Otherwise if you're doing all the side quests you should be a couple levels over each mission. I'm level 24 and I'm always a couple levels over any mission I run across.
