on my way through elite and nm i came across the Pepperbox machine gun (and another one of the same type) which i upgraded to item level 48. Though it does perform fine in Brompton Cemetary and the regular base game, these machine guns are pretty much useless in Westminster, Abyss and Stonehenge because of the high HP of the monsters.
Now during gameplay i never came across any of these machine guns anymore and only certain guns like the Nova Gun can be found with item level of 51-55. Also frustrating, i can’t upgrade very rarely found grenade launchers with item level 51 to beyond item level 53+.
Are there no machine guns or grenade launchers for the Guardian with higher item level in the game?
