Farming for weapons with different parts

#1K_MAC445Posted 3/7/2013 7:47:01 PM
I've never really understood the effect of having different parts on a gun. For example I see people saying an infinity with jacobs grip is the best. Is there a list of how they affect weapons?

In my defense, that post is about an infinity I'd look for myself. There are lists of different varieties of guns and whatnot, and some parts are very notable from their looks. That's what makes Borderland's Gun System so unique, the fact that you could have a Vladof Pistol with a sight from any other gun manufacture, or a jakobs sniper with a Hyperion Barrel.

A lot of people have heard of a sniper called the Chinook. It itself is a Jakobs sniper rifle using a Hyperion Barrel. If we change that barrel to, oh let's say Jakobs, we get another famous sniper rifle, the Muckamuck.

Since these guns can utilize many different parts that aren't just from it's manufacture, it makes the system more versatile, meaning you won't usually find the same gun twice.

Thanks for the input but im talking about on legendaries and uniques, it seems certain parts from certain manufacturers are favourable over others on certain guns. Do the parts affect the stats? And if they do is there a list somewhere or how they affect it.

He just answered your question!

And NO it's impossible to make a list as the guns hardly ever repeat themselves.

Although I won't be surprised if somebody out there was bored enough to find every possible craft

Parts do affect stats indeed. If we take a look at these two infinities...

You will notice they have different grips, which affects their Fire Rate, Reload Speed and damage.

I should also state for unique and legendary weapons, they have special parts for them made just for the red text, such as infinity's barrel, allowing infinite ammo, and the lemniscate (infinity symbol) firing pattern. However, I'm sure you've run across a legendary that was pretty powerful, then ran into another that seemed just as good but with a scope. There are parts to a gun that aren't unique and that is the variable to the guns stats, are those non-unique parts.

I don't understand it myself, I'm just going off of what I've seen people talk about, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
