Finally got the muse to try to create my very first mod for Borderlands 2. And I love how it turned out both gameplay-wise and how it looks. <3
Once finished, the Ghostrider will be a shield manufactured by Jakobs. Like the Rough Rider, it will feature 0 shield capacity, but it will put more emphasis on damage reduction and less on your overall HP boost. And unlike its DLC counterpart, the Ghostrider will boost your roid damage by a significant amount, and when compared with either the LAw pistol OR a sniper rifle featuring a bayonet accessory, the Ghostrider will provide lifesteal just like the Order shield from the base game.
I tested it extensively on OP 8 both on the B4NK3R platform and in the Washbyrne Refinery, and I had so much fun with my new sniper/melee hybrid playstyle that I almost missed dinner. ^^
