Loot shooter series border areas is about picking up a shiny new weapon one minute and throwing it away for something more powerful the next. Tiny Tina’s Wonderland continues this trend, but with a few extra creases that can lead to trolling unsuspecting players who aren’t paying close enough attention.
Loot is a numbers game, and like previous entries, Tiny Tina’s Wonderland throws so much new loot at you that it’s not even worth looking at each piece individually.

Elsewhere, players have uncovered a more intentional troll: an expensive weapon that loses its value the moment you fire it. “Fired the gun without reading the description.” wrote the player who found it on reddit. “It’s safe to say I was trolled.
