    Are there any unique weapons in this? Or is it going to be a thing where there's some King's Sword of Haste set of modifiers that's way more desirable than anything else and pretty hard to come by?

      King's Four-barrelled grenade-shooting shotgun of Haste?

      Every weapon is a unique weapon, apparently. I kinda hope there isn't a One Gun to Rule Them All.

      I do like the idea of such random, crazy firepower. That way when you replay it, you don't feel like you have to run straight for one specific quest or zone to get The Weapon before you get back to the rest of the game. Plus with different effects from the weapons, the game might play quite differently.

        I hope they're at least a bit more unique than the plethora of samey weapons we got in Hellgate. It felt so freaking pointless in that game farming for gear because nothing interesting dropped. Ever.

      There are unique named orange weapons that are one step above purple epics. Weapons you'll only run into a couple of times during a play-through. I believe each class of weapon has it's own set of orange legendaries, some of which can be used at lower levels, and others that you'll only be able to access at Level 50.

      Every weapon is unique! They spent their entire budget for weapon modelers to make unique weapons. Everything else was made to have something to shoot with the cool weapons... ;)
