Alright, I was able to find a chart for Jacobs prefixes, so everything's good now. Thanks for input on the sookum over Tatum. Turns out Tatum is +crit and sookum is +dam, I was thinking I wanted +crit, but I'll defiantly go for the sookum if it's the stronger variant. Thanks for your help :]


All Jacobs snipers have hidden crit bonuses.
That's why skookum is better.


Oh OK, I thought I read something like that. Awesome then, so whatever kind I happen to get will have bonus crit. Thanks for the help :D

It's not every gun. Skullmasher can hit harder I believe and the elephant gun cannot have the skookum prefix.

Or was it the buffalo? Or both? I forget.

I was actually hoping the boards resident BAR master would correct and discipline me. I'm kinda into that stuff.

The safety word is kaboom.

Pretty sure the Skullmasher is still better with the Skookum prefix. The Buffalo and Elephant Gun are both scopeless, and the accessory that gives bonus damage (and therefore Skookum prefix) is a scope shroud, so they can never be Skookum. The best prefix for those, damage-wise, is Tumtum. The same goes for the Hyperion Longbow; it can't have the Auditing prefix, so Venture is then the best prefix for it.

Also, to note, the damage prefix is usually better than the critical prefix on sniper rifles, regardless of manufacturer. However, if your skills, BAR, or equipment boost your damage enough, the critical prefix can actually become better than the damage prefix. Then again, the opposite is also true, if you then have enough critical damage bonus via skills or what have you, the damage prefix will very easily eclipse the critical prefix. One noted exception to this is amp damage. Amp damage is affected by critical damage, so if you have The Bee or another amp shield equipped, critical-prefixed sniper rifles may still outperform their damage-prefixed counterparts.

That, felt, so, good. *shivers*

On a serious note thank you for the correction and information.
