The X's badass Weapon Prefix guide

Great work on the guide!
Only thing I have to note is that on some guns the accesoire is somewhat hard to distinquish (like on the Gunarang) but overall I really like what you are doing.

The was a thread in the Old Forums ( http://oldforums.gearboxsoftware.com/oldforums/20150309030719/http://oldforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=238335 ) that had a lot of useful information with explanations in addition to prefixes. I have a link to it in my forum ‘signature’. Almost all of the image links are still intact, but a few (specifically Assault Rifle Grip prefixes, SMG Accessory prefixes, Shotgun Barrel prefixes) are broken.

However, the author of that thread (Loot Turtle) made a viewable online version that can also be downloaded. IIRC, it downloads as an MS-Word document and is 9 pages. It contains the tables that are broken in the old forum thread. The online version can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?r92tavdrrixdnae

Hopefully, you can incorporate some / most of the information in this new thread as time allows or even port it over to the new forum.

Nice source buddy.
Probably I’ll manage to port these guides and keep them in line of my accesory part guide. Will be a long job but since it will be availiable in the new forum, will last for a while. This is just the beginning.

The roadmap would be like this: 1st Accesories, 2nd Elemental and finally Parts (grip and barrel)

Is that the same as the site referenced in the original parts guide? (See the links in this post) If not, I’ll up date that one as well, as I have a link to Loot Turtle’s guide on the old forums already. Thanks!

No, I don’t believe it is the same. Also, in my signature is a link to Gun Parts which takes you to Imgur. The link was originally available somewhere on the old forum. Unfortunately, I don’t recall the exact source. There is effectively one page / tab for each type of weapon with pictures and detailed information. The only area that is slightly lacking in info is the SMG stock. However, Dahl is generally preferred followed by Hyperion and then most likely Bandit (since it has no effect - positive or negative) on performance.

OK, that is almost the same link as the one I’ve already linked. Haven’t had a chance to check which is more up-to-date yet, but here’s both links for anyone who wants to compare them:

I just created an Imgur album that has all the Weapon Parts and descriptions of what they effect.
The link is on my profile page.

This album gives you all the gun parts in one “shot” so to speak, no need to switch pages.

This is it… http://imgur.com/a/pgvVM

That seems to be identical to the albums at the two links I posted just ^^ !! Does anyone know who actually created the original artwork?

Yes, it looks like the link you provided has essentially all of the same info combined into one screen or tab. The info is virtually identical to the info in the link in my ‘signature’. The only reason I prefer the link in my ‘signature’ is because the format is somewhat easier to read, given that the images are slightly larger. Also, the page load time is somewhat reduced since only one tab of information needs to initially load.

My guess would be the guy (bondator) in the link in my ‘signature’. This is based upon both the large size of the images and the number of views (in excess of 86k). It looks like the images in the link you provided have been resized to be smaller to fit on one page. So, that work was likely a derivative. Also I did notice that in Internet Explorer at least, you can zoom the image to make it easier to read the embedded text which is a plus.

EDIT: After having viewed both pages and having checked both imgur members profile pages, it would appear that sunnehh is likely the original author. The date attributed to sunnehh’s work is June 30, 2013 and the date attributed to bondator’s work is September 10, 2013. So, it would appear that bondator took the images and created separate tabs which avoids the need to zoom in on the pictures and makes the page load faster. That might explain why bondator has in excess of 86k views and sunnehh only has 9800.

Sorry, I didn’t check/see your links. I made the album and then posted.
As far as the original poster, it is unsigned that I can see. I have not been able to
find an original author as of yet ( though it would be nice…they did great work )

Thanks for the detective work. I know on one early version I saw of WIP on the old forums, the sniper rifle scope section had identical ADS views for all scopes, which I believe is fixed in the imgur gallery versions. The user name sunnehh looks vaguely familiar, but there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to search the old forum archives to check.

Looking all those guides… I don’t know if I should keep doing mine or re-make the old ones xD

Yes!?

Yes. But will take its time.

Oh, forgot to add: all will have the same style. Yes, stains, and all red and orange and yellow and stuff xD

This is most excellent! Will add it to Lootology. (And add the other thread. Sorry, just got back home after being away for 6 days. I will pick up my slack now)
