I believe that the level of weapon/item you acquire is determined more by the mission level that is active, rather than the player level (or Sanctuary level) per se. That may explain why you see different levels at different times of play. Ax
I have about 400 things in my backpack and they are all usable. I just can't pick things up until the new Editor comes out (or I dump/sell all but 26 or less of them).
