so for the mayhem modifier that buffs elemental damage by 70% and reduces normal bullet damage by 70%, how does this interact with the infusion skill because this turns every weapon into a elemental weapon so does the normal damage get debuffed while the elemental portion get buffed?
It doesn’t actually “turn” every weapon into an elemental weapon, it just converts a portion of the damage. And from what I gather from @Derch, the modifiers do work with infusion on a non-elemental gun. It can help balance out the damage so the modifiers don’t hurt you too bad.
Correct, when using Infusion with non-elemental guns those modifiers will buff the converted damage. More on that can be found here:
