The lights are on
Come one, come all to the official Borderlands group! Talk weapons and more!
Borderlands has a HUGE number of weapons and items. Feel free to share some of the best ones you've come across.
I found an Eridian rocket launcher type gun, and in red in the description it read, "101011010110"
Recently I've been using a scoped revolver a lot. Why? Because it fires five projectiles at a time like a shotgun, yet it only counts as one bullet. The craziest thing is it's not even a special weapon -- it's the most common rank and is only worth about $1,500. I just picked it up off some random dead dude. Thanks, random dead dude.
yeah i have a revolver that constantly resupply's itself with ammo slowly, not sure why though but i'm not complaining.
I'm using an explosive sniper rifle that has a x3 elemental modifier. I've gotten 14k crits with it at level 18! I also use a scoped revolver that has a hefty x7 damage modifier. It's a freakin beast.
I was using an exploding sniper rifle for a while too. It was hilarious. Now I have a rocket launcher that shoots 3 at once.
Yeah, I've found the colors to be pretty misleading. They might be rare and worth a lot of money but their stats are not that great. Have any of you come across any orange weapons? I'm level 20 and I have yet to see one.
i have a few, lvl 36 though, i'm a nerd for this game
are they awesome or disappointing?
I just got a level 19 Orange sniper rifle...it's disappointing as hell. It even has "terrible" in the name :(....on the bright side though i found a shotgun that fires rockets, i thought that was rather funny. It also had a scope that had a better zoom then my sniper rifles.
The color of the weapons only pertains to rarity, usually not stats. I got a few orange weapons with the Mercenaries weapons pack for the preorder, but it took me about 2 hours to find something better. I've been finding that the purple weapons tend to be the best, but not necessarily: I found a sniper rifle (a Vicious Gamble, I believe) that does 260 damage with +200% critical hit damage. Skagzilla fell to less than ten shots from it, and it was a white gun.
pretty awsome honestly, i mean they have some weaknesses, such as this atlas revolver i have, 2.6 fire rate, 275 damage, +133% damage, +38% fire rate, but only 2 bullets in the magazine.
I love the Boomstick, a shotgun/grenade launcher-like hybrid dropped by a boss.
Everyone has it, Sledge's shotgun, get close enough to a Bruiser with that and shoot it, and it will fly! And I mean fly, talk about knockback.
But the best I have probably is my 108 dmg incendiary combat rifle. Automatic shotgun anyone?
Another is the SMG's that fire 2 rounds and they bounce off walls and the floor and everything, those are fun to mess around with.
Got it, bro?
