1k Damage Plasma Caster Deals 2k Damage

#1Tuff726Posted 11/27/2012 5:28:25 PM
I have two... a corrosive and a slag plasma caster. The corrosive deals 2k vs flesh and 2.5k vs machines while the slag always deals around 2k. Both of them have just over 1,000 damage. The only damage modifier I have is a class modifier that is adding 31% damage.... but 1,000 x 1.31 is not enough to deal 2k. Also, no other weapons seem to be doing this drastic damage difference, even my E-Tech assault rifle.

Are the enemies significantly lower in level than you?

Isn't it supposed to fire 2 shots at a time anyway? Or is that already factored in?

The enemies are level 30 and I am 35.... does that all of a sudden double their damage? If so, then why isn't my assault rifle affected?

You will do significantly more damage to enemies that are well below you in level. I don't know the exact formula. Damage done and damage taken are effected by level difference. Both in the players favour, and in the enemy's favour.

Welp...that's not the cause of the difference in damage then.

What about your Badass rank? Did you apply any tokens to gun damage?

I believe it was determined that plasma casters do significantly more damage than listed on the gun card, due to the tiny aoe the bullets do, on a direct hit. Kinda like explosive weapons.
