Lol! (Criticism)

There is no rhyme or reason to the sorting systems that helps you find a particular gun.


What? Yeah, there is. By default, it sorts by weapon/armor slot. Did you really not know that!? lololololol


Find Baligant in less than 2 seconds:

Time's up.

I found two possibilities within 5 seconds and would have known for certain if I could have hovered over it. If you really wanted it to be quicker you'd resort the icons. (I'm curious on how you have your vault sorted. Acquisition order?)

But it would be already be found in an alphabetized list by gun type.

Only because it would be near the top of the 192 item long list. And that required you know the name of the weapon. There are numerous weapons whose names I don't know, but I can find by icon just fine. When you have hundreds of weapons in a game, the designer needs to identify the hierarchy of information, and Bungie chose weapon type, rarity, and element above name. A decision I think works well.
