Weapon Types and Maximum Values (Best Weapons) - Stats Inside

#1JustinS1985Posted 2/17/2014 4:56:08 PM
I've seen a few posts asking about best equipment (I've made one myself) so I figured I would put this information out there for people to use. Every weapon in the game belongs to a certain category, and those generally are all going to have the same stat caps once they're upgraded. Buying a "better" weapon is just paying for one that is farther along the upgrade path than your current weapon. Every weapon has a capped number of upgrades as well so I don't believe you can max out every stat (correct me if I"m wrong on that), but they should come out equal in the end.

*** This is listed on the base in the guide but not on any upgrades, you can probably lower this, but someone would need to confirm to make sure.

I've never written a FAQ before haha, but I could try to play with the formatting and stuff tomorrow at work if no one is already doing one.
#6Cloud8690Posted 2/17/2014 5:55:49 PM
That or contact someone who does write them and share information. Tracked topic to keep it bumped.

You mean to say if you upgrade a Crimson Blitz, it becomes a Liberator? For example.

No. Just that Liberator starts closer to the 2500 max value than Crimson Blitz so it takes less upgrades to reach the end.

I'm on my first playthrough, so upgrades is not available.
How much att/mag you gain with each upgrade? And is it hard to get items for it?
