Slag Gun Slags Me?

I have a slag SMG, it’s a Feculent Chulainn. Does slag damage (with a nice 33.8% chance). When I equip it, every now and then it slags me! It’s been a while since I played on last gen, is that common for slag weapons?

That’s one of the Chulainn’s two effects. It’s exclusive to this gun.

The other effect is that it does both slag and shock damage. However, there is another gun called the Florentine that does this without the self-slagging.

Thanks, I don’t think I’ve ever used a Chulainn before!

Florentine is my favourite gun in the game. Gaige + Florentine + Anarchy is INSANE
