"Legendary Weapons"

#1dwill2168Posted 6/5/2011 4:00:48 PM
i hate it when people use this phrase to describe the unique weapons in the game, (Ex. Pushy, Ratslayer, All-American....) It just bugs me alot for no really good reason. It just makes people that say it sound like they are fresh from playing pokemon, starting their 2nd gaming experience ever.It also happens waaay to often. What are some other fallout specific- misnomers that you either have read on the board, or have heard your younger/dumber xbox live friends saying?

I overlook these things because I understand what others are trying to say. I know it's unique not legendary. Not worth stressing or berating someone over IMO.

Hey i say legendary weapon simply because i like how it makes me feel having 20 "Legendary" weapons rather then 20 "Unique" weapons in my inventory

i admit, i have no good reason for this really, it just bugs me. its like calling a message board an internet talking thingy, its not correct.

but the fact of the matter is that some of those unique weapons are pretty damn legendary i mean would you rather use a .44 or "The Mysterious Magnum"?

simply being one of a kind makes them unique, not legendary, by definition.

yes but in any other game a unique weapon would be legendary... unless its borderlands in which case it is just one of many

Never heard anyone call it Legendary till this topic. Always heard them called "unique", since they kind of are.
