Is there a weapon calculator for Borderlands 1&2?

I have often found 2 guns with similar stats but could not find out which gun is better in terms of damage. Is there a calculator where you enter a guns stats and it will compare and tell which has more DPS?

And if you are good at calculating DPS, can someone tell me which gun has better DPS? Been testing them for 20 min. on bruisers and can't find which one is better

AR340 Glorious Havoc
Manufacturer: Vladof
74 Dmg
68 Accuracy
11.4 fire rate
54 round clip

HVY24 Support Machine Gun
Manufacturer: S&S
80 Dmg
74.4 accuracy
4.9 Fire rate
50 round clip

For assault rifles:

Fire rate is #1.
Damage is #2
magazine size is #3
Accuracy is #4

2 + 3 can be interchangable depending on the person.

Glorious havoc is better because it's so much faster it's pathetic.

Borderlands has a very complicated DPS because its not just damage and rate of fire

it also includes magazine size for those monsters that can not be killed in one magazine and also reload speed as they that can lowers DPS if there is a penalty to reload or you are comparing two different class weapons


Not a calculator but you can use this

Keep the first one. Any Combat Rifle or SMG with a RoF less than 8 is garbage.

Thanks. I was leaning towards the Havoc but couldn't quite feel which gun was better.
