Why is radiation so good?

in the beginning i hated radiation weapons but now in the endgame they just seem to destroy most anything. why are they so good? this seems to be a good replacement for slag.

If you don’t want to switch weapons for health and shield bars then radiation is good. since it do not have penalty for health and it deals 1.5x against shield. it is bad for corrosive weapons though.

are you in normal or tvhm?

Actually, radiation is neutral against shields in normal mode and even good against shields in TVHM

very helpful thanks. my weapons are a mix of cryo, rad and normal so now i see why they usually melt enemies

radiation is just good at mobbing, but you really notice the difference against single targets if you’re playing Zane against bosses. the other characters pump their gun and/or elemental damage so high that it doesn’t matter, but Zane wants to match his gun element as close to enemy weaknesses as modifiers allow
