Assault rifles:
Bekah
Difficulty: 8/10
power:3/10
Acquisition: 6/10
At range it's pellet splits into three unlisted. Issue is that it has ridiculous scope sway and recoil.

Pros:High base damage, At the correct range you can get 4x damage. Long range it splits into 3, fires as fast as you can pull the trigger.l
Cons: High recoil, low magazine size, has ridiculous sway, long reload time, can not come in an element, poor accuracy.

Sawbar
Difficulty: 7/10
power:5/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Really not as bad as you'd think. At a certain range it splits explodes into more projectiles. It's very nice for crowd control and it can actually kill stuff in OP8
Pros: Large magazine size, at range it explodes into three fire balls, Fairly accurate, lowish recoil.
Cons: Lowish fire rate, Element locked, long reload time, low damage, shorter range.

Bearcat
Difficulty: 2/10

Pros:Can come in any element.
Cons: Everything else.

Seeker
Difficulty: 2/10
power:4/10
Acquisition: 1/10
Fires rockets that home on targets slightly., it's nothing to rush and get but it can be amusing on gaige with 600 anarchy.
Pros: Slight homing effect, explosive, no recoil.
Cons: low mag, low fire rate, low damage, slow projectiles.

Lead Storm
Difficulty: 8/10
power:7/10

Best assault rifle in the game BAR NONE, no excuse not to use it if you want to use an assault rifle.
Pros:
Cons:

Veruc
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 7/10
Acquisition: 2/10
Incredibly easy farm, worth farming because of its ease.
Great weapon but not the best in the world by any means.
Its effect is to shoot three bullets while consuming two ammo in a horizontal arc, which means its spread is terrible and they are tight at all its an excellent close range weapon but for long range youre better off throwing your shoe at them.
Pros:
Cons:

Hammer Buster
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 8/10
Acquisition: 10/10
Upgraded purple Jacobs rifle
Pros: High damage

KerBlaster
Difficulty: 5/10
Power: 9/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Most popular prefix: Plump
Its basically a useable version of rifles with the torgue barrel(grenade launder thing). Its effect it after the first grenade explodes it launches a second dealing the same damage. Great but not the best thing.
Farm is easy.
Pros:
Cons: low mag size,

Shredifier
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 6/10
Acquisition: 7/10
Can not be boss farm(hyperious seems to drop it fairly 'frequently'

Cons: inaccurate, high recoil, lacks some damage.

Madhous!
Difficulty: 8/10
Power: 2/10
Acquisition: 10/10
Can not be boss farmed as the boss was given the wrong loot table.
Marked as one of the worst weapons in the game, it is wildly inaccurate but its bullets can splinter into two other projectiles.

Chopper DLC3

Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 6/10
Consumes 6 ammo to 4 pellets. Lots of fun but its really not very good.
Pros: Redonkculous fire rate
Cons: Wastes way too much ammo, tapping the trigger causes it to never stop firing.

Blasters
Difficulty:1/10
Power: 5-9/10
Acquisition: 8/10

The vladof blaster is amazing, hands down a fantastic assault rifle. The others are hit and miss.
Bandit like always sucks, and Dahl is pretty strange
The Dahl version is like a veruc except it uses 3 ammo per shot to get three, ammo wise its great. Spread is just like the veruc.

Pistols

Stalker
Difficulty: 1/10
Power:4/10
Acquisition: 5/10
It's a barely upgraded anarchist with bullets that bounce around and pick up speed after each bounce.
Not terrible but now great.
Pros:
Cons:

Unforgiven
Difficulty: 1/10
Power:1/10
Acquisition: 5/10
500% crit damage bonus! Terrible fire rate.
it's the worst pearl by far.
Pros:High crit damage.

Power:/10
Acquisition: 6/10
Pros:
Cons:

Devastator

Its a poor man's Harold. Only really bad comparably.
Pros:
Cons:

Infection
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 7/10
Acquisition:1/10
Amazingly good corrosive pistol, consumes tons of ammo but fills all your wants for a corrosive if you dont like the hornets burst fire.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked.

Stinger
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 2/10
Acquisition:6/10
It's an anarchist that has ricocheting bullets. Nothing special here.
Pros: Decent all around gun in the lower levels.
Cons: lacks anything really special.

Gub
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition: 2/10
Not terrible but it only comes corrosive, it has fairly nice damage. Not sure of its effect, but I think corrosive spreads to other things, might just be an increased proc
Pros: Decent damage.
Cons: Element locked, Low fire rate, Low accuracy.

Hornet
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 7/10
Acquisition: 2/10
One of easiest guns to farm in the game. First gun in the game you can farm also.
Not exactly sure about its effect, probably is its five round burst, it only comes in corrosive. Been said its better then the gub DPS wise, haven't taken the two out on a test run side by side yet. This is a fantastic gun for loaders though.
Pros: Decent damage, added splash bonus, accurate.
Cons: Element locked.


Maggie

Difficulty: 1/10
Power:6/10
Acquisition:3/10
Its a masher from bl1 in essence. Easy farm, good damage. Spread is terrible since its a spread shot. Not as powerful as people think though.
Pros: Decent damage.
Cons: No element.
Thunderball's fist
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 8/10
Acquisition: 9/10
A pain to farm but its almost worth the hassle, after its shot hit it raises up an electric orb that explodes dealing AoE shock damage. Only comes in shock but shock is regarded as the best element.
*you'll have a better chance at getting one from a random drop.
Pros: Decent damage, added explosion.
Cons: Element locked, can kill self easily with it.

Logan's gun
Difficulty: 8/10
Power: 1/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Fairly easy farm, its lack luster really. Its not terrible at all but its not the greatest gun in the game by far. The think to remember its an AoE damage gun strictly, you can not fire it at an enemy it will go through them you must shoot at their feet. After its first shot hits a few seconds later a second explosion happens.
Its useful as the least ammo consuming way to give you rockets with a sham at least.
Hellface said there was a secret about it or something to that effect. Testing still going on.
*mostly used with the sham to get rockets.
Pros: Low damage means you won't kill yourself so easily when regaining rockets for sham fleeting.
Cons: Element locked, Low fire rate, Low accuracy, terrible damage.

Unkept Harold
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 11/10
Acquisition: 5/10
regarded as the best pistol in the game, and one of the best guns. While it consumes a ton of ammo its well worth it, every shot fired turns into 7 other explosions dealing massive damage and splash damage.
Pros: Highest damage in the game for a non-rocket.
Cons: Low fire rate, needs to be close for full damage, consumes a lot of ammo.

Infinity
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 1/10
Acquisition: 10/10
It's spread kills it, it's just terrible. god awful, stop thinking they are good.
Can not be used on OC spec gaige.
Pros: Unlimited ammo(*requires at least 1 pistol round in your inventory to fire), awesome fire rate
Cons: Low damage, It's horrendous spread.<-- this kills the gun.

Gunerang
Difficulty:7/10
Power: 2/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Has its uses, basically its what you get when you attach c4 to a boomerang. homes in on enemies but most likely will kill you instead. Its a great gun just not worth it in general. Its fun and kitschy.
Pros:
Cons:

Judge
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 2/10
Drops from one of the assassins, pretty much useless. Loot turtle did an interesting study on this gun.
Pros:
Cons:

Greed
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 6/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Has no sight so it has no movement penalty when aiming.
Fire element jakobs.
Pros: No speed penalty for aiming down sights,
Cons: Element locked

Flint's Tinderbox
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 2/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Mostly useless, its an interesting gun though.

Cons: element locked, low damage, low fire rate, low accuracy.

Law
Difficulty:1/10
Power: 4/10•11/10 for melee
Acquisition: 1/10

Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 2/10

Cons: Element locked, low mag size.

Rex DLC3
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Massive damage, slow fire rate. Despite it being jakobs it doesn't have its fire rate gimmick, locked fire rate.
Pros: High damage.
Cons: No element, low fire rate.

Etech pistols
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 2/10
Acquisition: 8/10
These are some of the most hated items, logans gun being one of these and that's really only useful for getting rocket ammo. Some versions home in on enemies, but none can crit. DPS suvks on all of them.
Hyperion versions can come in no element and see the only legit non-ele etechs in the game.
Pros:
Cons:

Rocket Launchers

Tunguska
Difficulty: 1/10
Power:4/10
Acquisition: 5/10
This thing wrecks surveyors and buzzards. Not much else.
Pros: Can kill things in the sky easily

Massive damage, no splash.
Pros: Highest damage in the game.
Cons: Everything else sucks.

Badaboom
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 5/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Its just like a regular bandit rocket just so much better and instead of three it fires six. Another easy farm plus you dont gave to save and quit to farm the boss.
Its a fantastic but its spread sucks, dont try killing thing at range with it. You wont. Like all bandit rockets it had a bad splash radius.
Pros: highish damage, high fire rate.
Cons: Inaccurate, No splash radius.

Bunny
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 2.5/10
Acquisition: 5/10
Its not that great, better launchers out there that are easier to farm.
Pros:
Cons:

Pyrophobia
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 2/10
Acquisition: 3/10
. Farm isn't horrible just is normally forgotten. Only comes in fire. Multiple fire explosions be rocket.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked.

Nukem
Difficulty: 3.5/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition: 4/10
I only rate it so low because its AoE is so large it kills you a lot, consumes 2 ammo also. Its one of the best rockets for ffyl and beyond that I dont see much else.
Pros: High damage, massive splash range.
Cons:

Mongol
Difficulty: 5/10
Power: 4.5/10
Acquisition: 3.5/10
Always over looked and can cause major FPS lag.
In the air it launches out multiple other rockets. Its fun, its vladof but doesn't have their rocket gimmick. Its great but the FPS issues I have to rate it low. If you dont get the lag its fantastic.
Pros:
Cons: low damage, can freeze the game easily.

Norfleet
Difficulty: 4/10
Power: 11/10
Acquisition: 10/10
Arguably the best rocket in the game, massive damage massive shockwave when it hits. This is a unique item and can not be found in chests. It does not come in explosive(those are modded items). Only comes from vermi who's a nightmare to spawn and hyperious. Its worth trying to get by a shot shot.
one rocket fires three rockets.
Pros: High damage, large if not the largest splash radius in the game.
Cons: Consumes a lot of ammo, inaccurate.

The Hive
Difficulty: 4/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition: 7/10
ONLY COMES IN CORROSIVE.
It's fun. not effective, doesnt work indoors but lots and lots of fun.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked

12 Pounder DLC1
Difficulty:5/10
Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Best rocket to complete the sniper rocket challenge by a long shot but... Other then that it kind of sucks, it fires a cannon ball the bounces. From testing using the scope with a speed buff it fly's through enemies or explodes on them and does nothing, its annoying to use and its shockingly not all that powerful. It's worth getting if you need to complete that challenge but other then that id say it's fairly forgettable.
Pros:
Cons: Almost no splash radius

Etech rockets
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 3/10•topeneaa 9/10
Acquisition: 8/10
These are rare as all hell, While they consume everything like proc and destroy everything.
The vladof topenaa is by far the best one, noted as a sutable replacement for a norfleet if you do not have one, well worth getting.
Others are a little lack luster but not terrible.
Pros:
Cons:

Shotguns

Butcher
Difficulty: 1/10
Power:4/10
Acquisition: 5/10
has a low pellet count but gets a static "5 or 6 shot(gunzerker skill)" effect.
Pros: It's effect is bonkers, high fire rate
Cons: Low pellet count, low damage.


Carnage

Interfacer
Difficulty: 4.5/10
Power: 9/10
Acquisition: 8/10
A better version of the CC. Has a slight learning curve. Fire pattern is sort of like the teeth of terra.
Pros: High fire rate, high damage.
Cons: Projectile pattern, uses a lot of ammo.

Deliverence
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 6/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Has to be the most fun gun in the game. The special effect seems gimmicky at first but this thing is ruthless. For advancing targets it'll intercept and explode, retreating targets it'll pursue and fire on them. It's just a Tediore SG when it's not flying around, which isn't all that good. For non Gunzerker classes, the Sham(then any absord shield) and Tediore Allegiance relic(+damage +mag) are mandatory.
Pros:
Cons:

Conference Call
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 5/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Nightmare to farm, highly sought after. Personally I dont Think its great but cant argue its still one of the better legendary shotguns. Its effect it to fire other shots out horizontally. Its no longer a boss shredder but it still has merits.
Pros:
Cons:

Striker
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 5.5/10
Acquisition: 2/10
Its basically a sniper disguised as a shot gun, has bonus critical damage standard.
Easy farm also.
Pros:
Cons: No element

Flakker
Difficulty: 10/10
Power: 8/10*
Acquisition: 2.5/10
Those who know me know my love of this weapon. Its amazing, when you first use it you'll think it sucks and wont hit anything with it.
Its a boss killer, Hardest weapon in the game to use. If you dont want to put effort into using a gun dont use this period. Its worth learning to use it though, it basically fires out a wall of flak. It only deals damage to enemies at a very specific range anything closer or farther nothing. If you know how to use it youll most likely love it. But because of its learning curve it gets a low rating,.
Pros: High damage.
Cons: Low fire rate, long reload, projectile pattern makes no sense.

Sledge's shotgun
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Nostalgia, that's all I see with this gun. Its a burst fire shotgun that is slow to fire and reload. At least its spread is better then in BL1. high damage and good pellet to ammo ratio.
Pros:
Cons: Long burst delay, low fire rate, low damage.

'thre' Dog
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 2/10

Pros:
Cons:

Invader
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 5/10
If you pick it up while farming the hive good for you, this gets outclassed by every other legendary sniper though. It just uses up all your ammo, from what I've tested.
Pros:
Cons:

Skullmasher
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition: 8/10
I dont like this never have even in bl1, never will. Its a want to be shotgun posing as a sniper, its farm is annoying and tends to fall through the floor.
For people who play zero I can see this being amazing. Ill leave this to the community to deside.
Pros:
Cons:

Lyuda
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 6/10
Acquisition: 3/10
If youre farming for a veruc step a few feet and youll see gettle. Its bullets splinter, its a boss killer and its a great assault rifle. Not the best sniper but its pros out weigh its cons.
Pros:
Cons:


Volcano

Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 1/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Only comes in fire, it's terrible the purple versions of this deal more damage. It has additional splash range.
Pros: None
Cons: Elenebt locked, lower then normal damage, splash sucks, everything about it blows.

Longbow
Difficulty: 5/10
Power: 7/10
Acquisition: 6/10
Its an Easter egg and a unique. Its bullets fire in an arc and it has no scope. Its a neich item. Very high damage, on par with the highest. Its also an etech but consumes 1 ammo. Need citation if it has the etech decreased crit. Has higher then normal base crit.
Pros: High damage, one of the few snipers that can one shot enemies in OP8
Cons:

Pitchfork
Difficulty: 4/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition: 5/10
Boss killer, other then that its iffy. Fires five rounds in a horizontal line and consumes two ammo. Gets negative points because its Dahl and most people hate Dahl snipers.
Pros: Consumes 2 ammo to fire 5 unlisted projectiles.
Cons: Projectile pattern.

Fremington's Edge
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 5/10
Acquisition: 1.5/10
The poor man's Hawkeye, the crit it lists is in addition to its base not the total like of most snipers.
Pros:
Cons:

Cobra DLC2
Difficulty: 2/10
Power:8/10
Acquisition: 10/10
Explosive sniper... Nuff said. Don't bother farming for one you won't get one.
If you don't want constructed items(modded), don't trade for one ether chances are its constructed.
Pros:
Cons:

Elephant gun DLC3
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 6/10

better/worse version of a buffalo. Can not have a scope,hence can not get a damage prefix.
Pros:
Cons:

Etech snipers
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 4/10

they waste ammo and have -100% crit damage. Some versions ricochet.
Pros:
Cons:

SMGs

Avenger
Difficulty: 2/10
Power: 4/10

When thrown it acts like a bouncing betty. Regens your SMG ammo.
Pros: Regens SMG ammo
Cons: Throw is kind of crappy

Actualizer
Difficulty:1/10
Power: 4/10
Acquisition:1/10
After the buff its actually pretty good. Its the poor mams bitch.
Worth picking some up if you don't want to farm for a bitch. Best with Hyperion grip and Dahl stock.
Pros:
Cons:

Tattler
Difficulty:1/10
Power:3/10
Acquisition:1/10
its a slightly weaker slagga that can come in other elements other then slag. The part that makes it next to worthless is that it will always have the blade attachment. If it didn't it would be great or well less bad.
Pros:
Cons: Can only come with a blade accessory, inaccurate,

Bitch
Difficulty:4/10
Power:9.5/10
Acquisition:4/10
Regarded as one of the best weapons in the game (behind norfleet and Harold). Its Hyperion gimick you won't really notice. If you can't reliably get headshots don't bother, its power comes from its pinpoint accuracy and bonus crit damage.
Pros:
Cons:

Slagga
Difficulty:1/10
Power: 7/10
Acquisition:2/10
Amazing. All you need to know. Most zerker players say its almost a required item for the. This thing slags everything and its basically an anarchy from BL1 without the double attachment(they only had that attachment, if they didn't it was modded) easy farm. One of the best items in the game. Only comes in slag. They really aren't in high demand since they are so common, so only farm this if you want one.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked

Emperor
Difficulty: 2/10
Power:6/10
Acquisition: 4/10
. Its special is that it fires 6-8 rounds per burst.
Basically just an upgraded Dahl purple smg. If you like those go farm it if you dont, don't waste
your time. If youre farming for the all black skins from the assassins I would suggest trying it out a bit.
Might have decreased velocity. its not very popular and it takes a while to get used to.
Its likely to fall through the floor
Pros:
Cons:Low fire rate, low accuracy,

Hellfire
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 5/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Worth a farm its not terrible at all, its dots stack on top on each other. Its great but not the best in all situations. Only comes in fire. Terrible for most raid bosses.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked

Baby maker
Difficulty: 3/10
Power: 5/10
Acquisition: 5/10
when reloaded you throw out two of them. Never liked it since the caster out classes it.
Rarely will throw out a third. Its popular but the tediore casters will out damage it, but this will use less ammo. Its not as good as people make it out to be.
Pros:
Cons:

Good Touch
Difficulty:1/10
Power:4/10

Pros:
Cons: Element locked

Bone Shredder
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 4/10

There must be a reason why people love this thing, someone please tell me.
Pros:
Cons: EVERYTHING

Commerce
Difficulty: 1/10
Power: 1/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Very terrible lack luster shock smg... Looks awesome, you can get better greens. If you need an easy shock smg I guess you can get it. Drops off an assassin. basically has the same stats as a standard shock Hyperion blue but with slower bullets

While there is no direct way of farming them other then the golden chest or the lotr easter egg most of these are a must. The bandit is the least popular of the lot with tediore and hyperion being the most liked. They are well worth keeping and using. They are etech they they consume 2 ammo.
The bandit has this strange set patter of the orbs flying off in all directions and it having the worst stats. They deal direct damage and splash damage The manufacturer ratings are:
Hyperion 8/10
Tediore 10/10
Maliwan 7/10
Dahl 9/10

Hoplite
Power:5/10

The number of players using it in the game effects its stats.

Pros:
Cons:

Transformer
Power: 5/10
Acquisition: 5/10
•gaige can benefit from this shield greatly. Thunderball+this is great
absorb shield with higher then normal but not crazy absorb.
It always has electrocute immune which makes it an oddity, and shock damage recharges the shield and when fully charged well deal damage to your health from shock attacks.
Pros:
Cons:


The cradle

Power: 2/10
Acquisition: 3/10
when I first heard of this shield I thought it would deal massive damage, kill you and get destroyed after use.
It should have been like that, instead it just kills you.
Pros:
Cons: EVERYTHING

Wiskey tango foxtrot
Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 7/10
Booster shield that drops bombs instead of shielding, its tons of fun but you got to stay on your feet with it. Its fun but not the best thing out there. dedicated drop are rare enemies.
Pros:
Cons:Everything

Fabled tortoise
Power:3/10
Acquisition: 3/10
incredibly high cap, lowers health, other stats aren't terrible.
When charged it slows you down to a crawl but when empty you get a bonus to movement speed. Very build specific. Recommended because of healthgate.
Pros: Lowers health(Yes this is a pro), increases speed while empty.
Cons: Lowers health, lowers speed while active

Black Hole
Power:4/10
Acquisition:3/10
•Best nova with BSS. BSS makes this 8/10 for power.
Farm is a little annoying. Its one of the best nova shields in the game.
It has a bonus of also acting like a singularity grenade and dragging everyone next to you. Can be seen as negative.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked

Impaler
Power: 3/10
Acquisition: 4/10
Fun spike shield, also fires homing spike at enemies that shoot at you but they miss alot. Only comes corrosive.
In all honesty, the corrosive makes it a little useless.
Pros:
Cons: Element locked, low damage, spikes rarely hit targets

Neogator
Power: 8/10
Acquisition: 3/10
Only negative is its low cap. Everything else is great, has a high elemental resistance and regen health when fully charged. Easy farm, totally worth it.
Pros:
Cons:


Hide of terramorphus

Power:4/10
Acquisition:7/10
•This is a melee builds best friend, and most likely the only shield you'll use.
While terra is a great boss to farm I wouldn't recommend farming specifically for this shield.
Its one of the most interesting shields in the game, its a spike/roid/nova. Its a great shield and I want more like it. It has great stats but its one of those things that gets shields that's effects are fantastic for end game farming so much. Worth keeping, worth trading for if you really want one. Only terra drops this it is a unique. You'll probably get one while farming terra for relics. If you dont get one after 100 runs and you are mainly melee zero, trade for it.
Pros:
Cons:

The Bee
Power:6/10
Acquisition:3/10
Easy farm, most people use it to make farming easier. Amp shield with 0 drain, even after its nerd its still one of the most used shields. Some people have a morality thinking its overpowered and will not use and dont want to play with people who use it, even after its nerf. Its really not so great anymore.
Pros: Highest amp damage, Costs 0 shield to fire a shot.
Cons: Long delay, low recharge.

The sham
Power:10/10
Acquisition:4/10

Leech
Power:
Acquisition:
Pros:
Cons: Can not come in slag
Good transfusion grenade, saps health from an enemy that instantly transfers to you and gives no health to team mates. Does not come in slag, comes in a 4x and 6x variants. Fairly low damage but best health gain in the game for a transfusion.

Quasar
Power:
Acquisition:
Pros:
Cons: Element locked
Simply put its a singularity that bounces around doing extra singularitys past the first. Only comes in shock, the farm for this is horrible since its from ultimate badass varkids. If you manage to get one use it.

Rolling Thunder
Power:
Acquisition:
Pros:
Cons:

Storm Front
Power:
Acquisition:
Pros:
Cons: Element locked
AoE grenade that deals constant damage, decent range and stops most enemies that are in its range. One of the better grenades in the game but it can be iffy. Only comes in shock. It is one of the bettrr grenade mods, but there are more versatile grenades out there.

Pandemic
Power:
Acquisition:
Pros:
Cons: Element locked
Great on armor, corrosive spreads to others around the enemy including yourself. Be careful when using it and stay far away from it, it is known to kill you a lot. Good grenade just is very situational. Only comes in corrosive.

I'm thinking of doing symbols for items required or incredibly good for specific builds that would be above the the highest rating since those would be the utmost important.

Default Re: Community list of legendaries to farm

Great thread idea, although i think you need to make it more 'clear' for everyone to understand it and read it, put some colors, bold text, separate the gun types better, clean your post if you want it to be more 'official'. Otherwize i love your idea.

Here's my take on some of your ratings, hope this can help.

HammerBuster :
Is actually a really good rifle, i used it with my Zero without any boost to assault rifle and it was killing mobs really fast. The fire rate is crazy good, as fast as you can pull the trigger, and damage is really high, criticals are crazy when you hit the spot. Also it's pretty damn accurate so you can easily hit crit points with it.
I'd say the downside is the reload speed and the lack of bullet. Other than that, it's pretty good.
3.5 *

Kerblaster :
I've tried it with a commando and a gunzerker. Really high damage, also spawn one or two grenades, this gun blow stuff up really fast. It's not that useful for every character imo, but still the highest damage rifle in the game i think.
Downside being his small magazine size, slow fire rate and comssume 4 ammo per shot.
3.5 *


---------------


Hornet and Gub :
This gun is better than the Gub in many aspects so better overall imo, still not fantastic but good. So i'd rate the Hornet higher than the Gub.
Hornet : 3.5 *
Gub : 2.5 *

Infiniti :
I think this gun deserve more than 3 stars, only because everyone needs a Infiniti pistol, some for their builds and some because it's the ultimate back up plan, all around really good gun even with his downsides. On some builds it can easily become 'the' gun to have. To useful compared to all others pistols, i run one on every of my charcters.
4 *

Gunarang : I'd say this gun is far from perfect, but maybe not THAT bad. Can be really fun on some pistols builds, and if you learn to use it right can be really cool. Can't be lower than the Logan's gun.
2 *


---------------


Badaboom : Imo on of the best launchers in the game, really high damage and very good for FFYL. Sucks at long range, but you usually don't snipe with lauchers, perfect for middle and close range. It's the best launcher besides the Norfleet.
4 *

Bunny : Pretty easy to farm if you are scaled to 4 players in the Thundra Express or in Caustic Caverns from Chubby Varkids. Not really useful imo, low magazine size, ok accuracy, low fire rate, ok damage, good on reload damage but that's about it, really hard to hit the ennemy with reloads.
2 *

Pyrophobia :
Pain to farm, kinda long run to get to Incinerator Clayton since he's at the very end of Frostbern Canyon. Ok laucher, blow multiple fire explosions, i didn't found any really good use of it yet.
2 *

Nukem : This is a pretty interesting launcher, really high area effect. It's basicly a nuke every rocket you fire. Downside being his reload speed, takes about 17 hours 31 minutes to reload.
3 *


---------------


Sledge's Shotgun : Pretty decent, highest shotgun damage in the game. Close range crazy good, criticals means insta kills on most mobs. And with 12 pellets per shot, with 2 burst shots making it 24 (i think some may have x17 bullets, so x34 per burst), criticals comes really easy. In your face type of shotgun.
3 *


---------------


Skullmasher : Highest damage sniper in the game, criticals are insane, accuracy not so much. Not an all around good sniper, but the best in some specific situations.
3.5 *

Longbow : Really fun sniper to use when you learn his mecanics. Remember tho : Ceci n'est pas une sniper rifle. It's actually a longbow. Critacts are sick good with this, you just gotta learn how to use it. Good damage, ok fire rate, great accuracy, longbow harrow pattern.
3 *


---------------


Emperor : Highest SMG direct damage in the game. Pretty good SMG even tho the burst fire may turn off some people. Ok SMG compared to the others.
2 *

Baby Maker : Really fun SMG, reloads damage is crazy high. Since the patch nerfed the reload damage with The Bee shield, this gun isn't 'that' strong anymore, but still does really high damage if you throw it with a full magazine.
3 *


---------------


Hide Of Terramorphous : The best overall shield in the game imo. Low delay, nova blast, spike damage, roid damage. No real downside to this shield other than maybe sometimes the low capacity, but that also means really high roid damage bonus. My Zero loves it.
5 *



Other than that your ratings are pretty accurate imo. I've got all the legendary weapons (i've completed my collection a week ago, yayyyy!) and have tried them all, didn't made any real test to compare this to that, but i know how all of them works pretty much. This is my opinions, like you said some people may like or dislike certain weapons more, this is all personal preferances.

Hope this helps!
Happy New Year!

I cant do that fancy stuff right now. I only have a cell phone.

when I get a chance ill do that.

But thank you for your evaluations, when I get more stars will change, i wont be doing half stars though.

The biggest reason why I had to mark infinity as 3* is because of its drop rate and the fact only the mentally deranged are willing to farm for the best versions.

In my book its a 5.

Community consensus is the most important thing with items.

But you made good points about the sledge. Gets another star instantly there.

I agree, polishing the presentation and by mixing everyone opinions to make some kinda overall rating and this tread can become really usefull for new farmers. A scale from 1 to 10 can make the ratings more accurate also.

And you are right OP, Doc Mercy is a bitch I can help you also with grenades mods, i'll try that tomorrow.

Clearly stated base gun no prefix, prefix can change anything to be much better then it normally is like the double accessories.

I'm hoping my library is open tomorrow so I can do the fancy stuff.
If it is, your idea on the rating system will take effect most likely. It is more accurate but could be more complex, i have to keep things super simple.
