Title sort of explains it, but for unanswered questions...

What matters to you when choosing a favorite weapon or whatever else it may be.

Looks? Price Tag? Stats?

I could care less about price, I look at stats and the looks, there are certain stocks I like but some are just ugly, I only care about looks on snipers, but for the rest, I just look at stats

Of course I look for balanced stats... no point in having huge damage with shit acc and RoF. Which brings me to what I really look for in a weapon... in-hand performance. The stats on a given weapon may look great, but sometimes it just doesn't perform the way you expected. Maybe it has massive recoil, or shitty slow reload speed. These types of things can be deal-breakers for me. If it performs well, and gets the job done in an efficient, quick and timely manner, its a keeper for me.

Price is about the last thing that should be considered IMO... things like a big scope or a blade accessory can artificially inflate the resale value of a shitty gun.

damage, decent rate of fire and decent reload-if one of those 3 is insanly good at the cost of the other, so be it

like mcfeelie said-its a weapon not a purse-

its pretty gay to pick up something just because of how it looks, ive left plenty of good shit lay because i dont use it-why pick up something that you're not going to use (i barely trade, so theres no barter value either)

damage, rate of fire, reload-thats it-fuck scopes, fuck clip, fuck accuracy, and DEFINITELY fuck the look of a gun

damn sweet banana clip on that level 14 piece of shit bro

Damage to RoF ratio, Scopes (snipers), Elemental multiplier, Accuracy on anything except Anarchys and most Shotguns.

That's what your mom looks for. XD

Anyway... It's not just one stat, it's the combination of stats that makes a gun great. On some guns I may go for max power, some max accuracy, other max fire rate, etc. It just depends on what gun it is.

So, we can all agree, Banana Clips override anything else about the gun? Very Happy

Well, some parts are rarer than others, and will affect the performance of said weapon

i'll always go for high RoF and dmg, don't care that much about acc.

i also consider clipsize on revolvers and shotguns.
and the scope on snipers of course.
