Most of my favorite guns are Maliwan, so i voted for em. Veggienatersml 23:16, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

How many people DON'T use at least 1 Maliwan weapon? It's not surprising that they won, voted for Dahl though (Expecting haters to burn down my house), the Penetrator is just too awesome...--Click for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 05:27, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

meh. headshotting a crimson lance soldier from a mile away with a hyperion lance takes skill. going up against a badass elemental skag with a 2-round jakobs unforgiven takes confidence, in yourself and your weapon. no offense meant to the Maliwananiacs out there. the spray-and-pray method works in a pinch, but i'll take power and precision any day over tech points.
Fryguysigwob 03:26, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Ricey made a good point, I think everyone uses ONE "mally-wan" weapon, I have a Firehawk & Defiler i'm quite proud of that stay in my starting 4. But sometimes I want something REALLY dead, so the girlfriend steps in and hellfires it to death. Bessie is still the most fun gun in the game though, at least for my playstyle. Nohai 12:48, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

I actually go out of my way to not use Maliwans, because I think they're too OP and take the fun out of the game. If I wan't corrosive I go with a Hornet or Caustic Thanatos, and instead of a Hellfire I use a Draco, or and explosive weapon like an Ogre or something. I used to love Maliwan early in my career as well, but I eventually got bored of lighting people up and taking cover until they died, so I started to appreciate the functionality of other brands. I go with S+S in place of Maliwan for my tech needs now.New sig 18:45, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

very well put. i absolutely love Jakobs. most of the games i join, users need mods to one-shot everything, with a clean headshot all i need is a Jakobs pistol. ;) RazmRazpRazh 18:59, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Maliwan makes by far the 3 most powerful incendiary weapons (take a guess at what they are...), and given the majority of the main story & DLC 1 involves enemies that are weak to incendiary weapons. It's difficult to not like Maliwan. not to mention the Defiler which I used until I found a Nemesis Invader--Click for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 19:07, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Dont get me wrong, I like to use other guns aswell. Few other guns in the game have the power of a Bessie, Skullmasker or Unforgiven masher or the overall performance of an Atlas. S&S are good alternatives to a Maliawn, if I cant find one, but for pure facemelting/ hair burning fun, I will pick a Maliwan if I have a choice. Yes, a really good version of Any Maliwan Legandary may be slightly OP, but sometimes thats the fun of it. If i am looking to challenge myself or just play a different style, I will and do use other guns. I find I am liking Torgue Cobras more lately and I have always liked Torgue Anarchys. It really depends on how im feeling at the moment. Obviously we all have our prefered guns but thats my opinion. Veggienatersml 19:59, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Most Annoying Cause of Death

February 20, 2011

The single most annoying cause of death is getting killed by an enemy's post-mortem crossfire, leaving you to bleed out with no-one to shoot... Could someone add it as "Post-mortem enemy shot", maybe?Happypal 13:12, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

What about Craw minions? Nothing sucks more than a jumping Larva knocking you off the cliff in the middle of a Craw hunt just before you land the killing blow. Veggienatersml 20:12, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

looks like the above COD's will have to fall under the "other" category this time. unfortunately changing the parameters of the poll template after a vote has been cast resets the poll tally. the existing poll was chosen by a user (nags in this case. see comments for submitter), but i like to post the upcoming poll on the Forum:Weekly poll results page a few days before saturday night's posting. feel free, everyone, to start the commentary ahead of time so that the poll may go up in it's most complete form. note, however, that the original submitter should retain most of the final say.

Grrrr. Acid burst shields on badass troopers. Or whatever that two-seconds-after-death-splat is. Anyway. Grrrr. Daemmerung 23:38, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

After getting run down a close second are Psycho grenades, especially the midget variety. As if their shrieking wasn't bad enough ahaha. Ekflagristoj 09:17, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Least Challenging Borderlands Main Boss

February 27, 2011

I imagine that this is for the boss encountered in their original habitat. Sledge is one of the very easiest foes in Moxxi's Arena because there he can't corner you. Daemmerung 23:45, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

What game do you plan to play first?

March 5, 2011

I am looking forward to the new Metal Gear that is coming out for All the consoles. I will probably also get Lego Starwars 3. Childish, I know, but they were fun to play. I was not that impressed with the demo for BulletStorm but I may try it when the price drops. --Veggienatersml 15:52, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

I was mad when they bumped back Gears of War 3 another year. I enjoy the lancer's chainsaw way too much... :3 RazmRazpRazh 19:28, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

no love for the rain grenade. with a soldier with 5/5 grenadier the rain grenade is the rootinest, tootinest, killingest 'nade in the game. a must for horde waves, beachhead incursions, and traffic snarls.

What is the least useful class skill?

April 23, 2011

Just for the record, Suply pickup is Supply Drop, right? How can anybody think that it is useless? With this skill, just throwing your turret can give you something like 300 Combat Rifle rounds. I can play the entire Crow's Nest as a heavy gunner, without picking up ammo, thanks to this skill. All for a single point! Sure, anything past level1 is mostly useless, but still.

i have never put a single point on either stat or supply drop. stat got my vote for sheer un-usefulness. however, i didn't know that a single point on supply drop would be sufficient. i'll give it a try, thanks.

New poll ideas

List your ideas for future weekly polls below:

  • Most annoying enemy / boss
  • Fav NPC
  • Fav DLC
  • Favourite Element
  • Favourite Mini-Boss
  • Favourite 3PDLC
  • Apples or Oranges? (sorry...out of ideas) —Preceding unsigned comment added by riceygringo (talkcontribs)
  • Favorite non-boss enemy -NOhara24 23:43, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
  • Favorite non-orange weapon (Anarchy, Havoc, Justice, Matador...) Nohai 20:25, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
    • difficult. one mega-poll of 37 different titled non-legendary weapons (disregarding baseline titles such as "machine gun" and "revolver") would prove counter-productive. the right way to pull this one off could take quite a while. 11 weeks by my calculations. one week per manufacturer to narrow down all of the fav named non-legendaries, then one last poll to cull all of the fav's into one death match vote. may be wise to systematically scatter each manufacturer's poll throughout the course of several months. Frysiggot2
    • Oh wow, I had no idea there were that many non-legendary guns. Nohai 12:48, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
  • Most annoying enemy archetype (bandits,spiderants,lance,zombies,craw worms,skags etc.)
    • see Forum:Most_annoying_enemy - Frysiggot2
    • I still think it would make for an interesting poll, even if the discussion page ends up being revived. We've got some new faces around here, and that thread is so old even UberOrb commented on it. Nohai 12:49, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
    • agreed. we can use the forum to narrow down the poll selection. this is probably going to be the way to go with polls that have too many options, like enemies, weapons, etc. Frysiggot2
  • Favorite Vehicle (Lancer,Racer,Monster,Runner)Click for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 02:43, February 19, 2011 (UTC)
  • Most frustrating Borderlands bug
    • The "overleveling" phenomenon (eg by playing DLC in PT1)
    • Modded game-breaking weapons in public games
    • Viral quests from joining multiplayer games
    • Broken class mods (Hunter, Tank, Peace Keeper)
    • Broken legendary or unique weapons (Reaper, Vengeance, The Clipper)
    • Disappearing elements in PT2.5 (barrels, Rakk Hive, Backpack DLC)
    • Bloodwing getting stuck in architecture
    • Phoenix disabling weapon auto-reloading
    • Floors and walls that absorb rocket or grenade blasts
    • Invisible snags and holes in published levels
    • The fact that despite all this breakage, I can't. stop. playing. Daemmerung 16:59, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

I agree w/ Daem's idea... also whatever happened to the weekly frypoll I WANT AN OPINION! lol. F ₳ ┬ M @ И 2539 talk 01:09, November 4, 2011 (UTC)

the frypoll reached its logical conclusion with the culmination of the final mega-poll. contemplation of the furtherance of the frypoll caused the user to suffer a crisis of existence and, therefore, quite logically, ceased to. keep in mind that anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again. it just doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order. go back and read that again. i makes sense, really.
