The 6650 dmg SMG Corrosive E-tech does 40k on Armor
The 6460 dmg Assault Rifle *Corrosive* E-tech does 20k on Armor

wtf?

Is this all casters, double damage or what?

edit: They are both corrosive sorry...

Youre surprised that corrosive works better on armor?

Yo tc, are you using a Cat com? Or an smg relic? Or a manufacturer relic that affects the smg but not the AR?

Pretty sure the Plasma Casters deal splash damage, hence the higher numbers.

I'm using axton, with an explosive relic (no relation to either weapon) and legendary mod.

Unless caster bullets somehow count as grenades and are buffed by the skill in his mid tree hmm...

Bonus elemental damage on casters. Also if you are hitting crits you will see a massive difference between a caster and a blaster.

Off the top of my head its 1.6 crit damage for a caster and 1.18 for a blaster.
They're not going to say no because of the implication.

It was non crit damage, and do caster get the same Bonus elemental damage that snipers get unlike most SMG's? (except hellfire?)

Where can I find more information about the math behind these weapons (crit damage, elemental damage, etc?)
