Evil Smasher Query

So I attempted to do my TVHM playthrough without enabling any side missions since I was informed that these said missions lock in their level once accepted. I was attempting to do the Evil Smasher quest at lvl 50, but a stranger accepted the quest in my game and now it is locked in at lvl 47.

Will a lvl 47 Smasher be dramatically different than a lvl 50 for the intended cheesy purpose of staying anti-social and saving time? I did some forum scouring before asking, and apologies if this has been previously addressed and I overlooked. Thanks in advance.

It randomly increases magazine size and fire rate. I don't think you can even get a level 50 version.

Lvl 50 is possible. In fact, it is usually what I see in the vids. The item reward theoretically should match the mission lvl.

My gut tells me that the lvl difference will not matter. Just probing for any extra info that stat junkies might know off the top of their head.

A lvl 47 is just as good. I have both a 47 and a 50, and I get the same mag size on my infinity when I use them.

Wonder how much longer we have until this glitch takes one for the team. I wonder if it will even ever get patched. I mean GB had to have known about it since release, practically.

I'd say there's only a small percentage that know about it though. It's not like the Bee where everyone knew about it and used it.

I don't think they will bother patching it, they'll just take the gun out of the game... Easier.

I won't be concerned whether or not it gets patched. Things get patched. Things don't get patched. It's just the way it goes.

The fact that duping has been rampant in both games makes me think that Gearbox isn't aiming to shit in everyone's cereal at all given moments of the day.

I don't think they'd do that. The gun looks like they put a lot of effort coding it.

Lol, I've only just heard about it but haven't actually managed to pull it off yet. I dumped my smasher but can confirm a Lv50 is possible as I just had to get one. I have a character I used to do a speed 2nd play through without hardly doing any secondary mission and every mission is now rated as Lv 50 with Lv 50 rewards. I also use it to try (and failed) farming stuff like the 50 infinity pistol.

No, the glitch does not work anymore.
That makes the gun the most useless in the whole game.
It sucked before and it's only purpose was to be used for the glitch.

Any good ideas on how to beat the big bosses alone? Since this one is scraped.

Try doing it on Normal. If your character is around 45-50 you should have an easy time. (except for Terra, he's 50)
There's still one glitch around. It's called the Off-Hand-Glitch.
You need a Gunzerker, a Pimpernell in your left hand and an empty, high powered Launcher in your right.

Or you could send me a FR (again) and i'll help you kill them quickly.
