What level are you now, Velo? That gun does not honestly sound that great. I just picked up an SMG that does about 140 damage, I think, although I don't remember the other modifiers.
And also, since you guys just played through the game recently, do you remember how to lower the bridges in Rust Commons West? I have no idea and I got a ton of missions that I need to complete on that side of the area. At one of them, a Claptrap said it was too dangerous.
