Red flavor text weapons

#1soulegion08Posted 9/20/2012 3:51:13 PM
Can anyone give me insight on what they do specifically?

I have a sniper that says "I can see my house from here"
it does 100% critical damage so i love using it to clear areas of trash mobs before i take out the big ones

I also thought it mean it has extremely long range which it does. the scope is amazing but the sway on it gets abit annoying at times.

my friend also has a pistol that says "I am free now" Im not sure what his pertains to. anyone have any idea?

I found a sniper with that, and I'm pretty sure it just increases the zoom on the scope.

I think they are just flavor text. Some point out the guns strong suits and others are just comedic.

in the first game that text meant the Zoom range was extended as I recall. I assume its something that they carried over from the first game.

the only one I remember specifically was the Flame one "Pele Demands a Sacrifice" it increased the chance of stuff being set on Fire to damn near every hit did it.

Its on all orange guns, or at least in BL1 it was. I think it means the weapon has a unique/special ability?

The shotgun with "Kikis got a shotgun" supposedly acts like a tediore but instead of being a grenade it flies around shooting what's left at people.

If it does, I have it but have yet to try it, I will be having some serious fun with it.

BTW it probably is a nod to kikis delivery service. As it flies around 'delivering' the rest of its clip.

I have a pistol that has 98X1 damage. It is really weird because...every other gun doesn't have a X1. The red says something like "would i lie?" and the white text says it does +3000% damage. I was like whaaaaaaat.

The gun shoots 8 projectiles or so instead of the 1(so i guess thats what it lied about) the gun itself does over 3k damage(if all the round hit) but the rounds are slower than an injured midget.

I think "I'm free now" causes ammo to sometimes not be used when you pull the trigger.

I loved this one, but put it in storage cause my backpack is so small :(

If BL1 is any indication, all guns with red text are going to have some special quality that isn't apparent in the tooltip.
