Default Slag Infinity

Just curious why there isn't one. I do know very well if someone has one it is 100% modded. Im just curious why it doesn't exist and why when its mentioned people seem to talk about it like it would be as OP as the Evil Smasher glitch. Is it just that it would be an unending stream of slag? Sal can kind of already do that can't he?

It'd basically be a much more powerful Slagga so yeah I think it would be pretty OP.

Slag Vengeful Anarchist = Close, without the awful fire pattern. I'm fond of Slag Stalkers as well. Another kind of overlooked gun I kind of liked was a Slag Veritas...especially when in combo with an Aequitas.

All for general play. Not really good for Raid Bosses.

It will slag you and it will never run out of bullets to slag... it would be OP.

I am sure one more OP weapon wouldn't hurt all that much :3

I'm not understanding this. How will a Slag Infinity throw its debuff onto the player?

Definitely not. Part of the Slagga's magic is the three-bullet thing. You get three pellets that each have 24.x% chance to slag or somesuch. This makes the chance like 54% if all three bullets hit. No way an Infinity could outperform that, as the fire rate is neither that high on the lazy8, nor that low on the Slagga...

...I rather think that the opprssive capitalist scumbags you're supposed to fire that piece of revolutionary high end technology at were deemed inherently sufficiently dirty(-handed) that comrade Vladof decreed slag unnecessary. Plus he'd probably have to buy it from Hyperiaon :^)

I know... ...Still:

Slagga = 8.8 * 3 bullets. Or 9.8 (fasterifed), then 29.4 slag chances of 24 or even 26.3 (maliwan stock IIRC) per sec. Chance to slag in 1 sec fire (all hits assumed: 1-(1-0.263)^29.4 = 1 - (0.736)^29.4 = 0.999878

Infinity = 10.4 * 1.56 (+56% Sheriff's Badge), 18% chance to slag (hypothetical, 12% is Infinity elemental chance, slag chance is normally 1.5 element chance). Chance to slag in 1 sec is 1-(1-0.18)^(10.4*1.56) = 1 - 0.82^16.224 = 0.960031

Slagga wins.
