Can someone explain how dr is calculated in this game?

#1darthteverPosted 4/28/2013 4:50:52 PM
I saw on borderlands wiki that using come at me bro increase your damage resistance by 300% which equals about 75% less damage u will take. I don't understand that calculation.

If that is true im not sure dr relics are worth it. Does anyone know if this is right and exactly how this game handles dr? Thanks

According to this post the damage reduction is calculated as

Damage Received divided by (1 + decimal form of damage reduction)

So for 300% damage reduction, it's

Damage received / (1 + 3)
Damage received / (4)

So you'd take a quarter of the damage, thus explaining why 300% damage reduction is actually only 75%.

Well, Come At Me Bro grants 250% damage resistance, on top of Gunzerking's innate 50%, so you'll wind up with 75% less damage received. Of course, on UVHM, even that won't really save you if you're taking hits. Everything just needs to be dead, and dead fast.

Functioning as intended, as confirmed by GBX.

Next nerf will be snorefleet.
