Let's fix the BL 2 Wiki!

On the old forums there was a thread for fixing various errors and inconsistencies with the Borderlands 2 Wiki. I thought we had one here, but apparently we don’t so I’m starting a new one. If you come across any pages that need to be fixed, post:

  1. A link to the page in question.
  2. The section the error is in.
  3. What the specific error is.
  4. What the correct information is and any collaborating evidence if required. This means no speculation on things like gun damage, damage reduction, what gear is best for a particular character, etc.

Remember that the Wiki is for us, but it’s up to us to make sure it has all of the correct information.

Please limit this to Borderlands 2 information. If the BL 1 and/or TPS Wikis are wrong, we’ll start a new thread for them. Thanks.


I’m occasionally on the Wiki myself, so I’ll keep an eye peeled Gulf :slight_smile:

Thanks. Remember, it’s up to us to ensure the Wiki is a reliable source for everybody. :slightly_smiling:

Didn’t slag duration increase for UVHM to 8 seconds? What was it previously, like four or six? The page below only shows the 8-second duration for slag. Also, the page listed after that for slag itself seems to contradict this? I actually thought the regular slag timer was 8 seconds, and it went to 12 in UVHM, but I don’t know why I think that (I’m headed to Pandora now to confirm).

edit - Can someone else confirm this? Slag is lasting like sixteen or seventeen seconds in UVHM.
2nd edit - yeah, definitely 8 seconds in Normal and True mode, and I think it was doubled to 16 for UVHM. Also, I haven’t taken one of my regular characters to Normal mode for a long time… that weapon swap speed increase for UVHM is very noticeable.

Of course. We can’t be giving out false information! That’s illegal!

Disclaimer: I have no clue whether that’s legal or not.

Well false advertising is but for false information I have no clue.

Some more shady information for ya! :bluncertain:

The page for Special Weapons Effects has a few errors ragarding drop locations.

The following guns are, in the main list, said to be available from Seraph Vendors:

Interfacer - Furthermore, the individual link says that it’s a rare drop from Voracidous, Dexidous and Triple O, but AFAIK it only drops from Vora.

Hawk Eye - This gun is also said to be a rare drop from Vora or Dex, but I’ve never heard of it dropping from Dex.

Omen - Individual page seems OK.

People actually farm dexi lol.

I think they said they Doubled Duration and Tripled damage. So I believe it was 4 seconds and now it’s 8.

Take one of your characters to Normal, True, and Ultimate, slag the target dummy in each, and let me know what times you get. I got 8 for Normal and True, and 16 for Ultimate, but maybe you’ll get something different? I didn’t check the damage multiplier, but that sounds right.

I’ll test it real quick

My test
Nvhm slag length 8 seconds
Tvhm slag length 8 seconds
Uvhm slag length 16 seconds
Nvhm slag multiplier ×2
Tvhm slag multiplier ×2
Uvhm slag multiplier ×3

Awesome, thanks!

Also… I don’t think Zer0’s Unf0rseen damage calculation on the page reflects the recent buff. I think the coefficient goes from 32 to 78, so the new formula would be: (1.13^Level)(78)(Rank) instead of (1.13^Level)(32)(Rank).

I’d need a before and after video before I changed that. That or screenshots of what damage it can do.

Please hold while we process your request.

edit - my Spy COM has +6 in Unf0rseen, so I couldn’t get a reading for rank six exactly. Still, let me know if this works. BAR is off, points only in Decepti0n, Fast Hands, and Counter Strike, no relic, and no COM except the Spy to get ranks over five. I’m at OP0 here, in case that makes a difference. Note that the exponent value is actually going to be something like 1.13001431…, in case you want to try to account for rounding errors.

2nd edit - it may be worth mentioning that there’s apparently no damage falloff over distance, it can damage through walls, and shock-damage-enhancing relics, Ambush and Deathmark all buff it. Waiting until the end of Decepti0n does not increase its damage.

3rd edit (not for the wiki)… I’m hitting the target dummy for a bit over 51 million if I throw everything I have into it. :dukeaffirmative:

Updated the Wiki. Thanks guys. :dukeaffirmative:


Now hopefully no one changes it back.

I’ll throw my hat into the ring by saying that the Hawk Eye is obtainable from Omnd-Omnd-Ohk as well.
There’s a video of him dropping it, but it’s a bit hard to see due to the low quality. I’ve seen him drop a Siah-Siah variant back in November, but I do not have any picture evidence of the drop and my attempts to get a new picture were unsuccessful.

http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Gwen’s_Head says “Whenever obtained, a new Gwen’s Head’s level is based on the current plot mission.” That is not true. I first encountered this gun a few days ago, on a level 44 Maya with Where Angels Fear to Tread (level 45) as the active plot mission. The Gwen’s Head was level 37. Which is about what I’d expect for something in The Dust, so no big deal. :slightly_smiling:

The Wiki said after you’ve found one, the second one would be at the level of Sanctuary. So if Sanctuary is level 37, the pistol will be too.
