Do elemental capicators on weapons have a lower chance to spawn than having no element at all?
Good question. Leaving aside manufacturer constraints (Maliwan, Jakobs) I’m tempted to say that once a weapon type by a given manufacturer starts spawning in-game it would have an equal spawn ‘weight’ for elements once those spawn in-game.
Going purely by uncertain memory I probably have a good feel for element/weapon type/manufacturer-combinations we’re more or less likely to encounter.
That said, in my thousands of hours in BL2 I’ve never known for certain. Weird, the things we miss. Or find out and then forget.
Hopefully someone knows or there’s a table somewhere, this is gonna bug me now.
