Ok folks...

Every day I look around on here and I see people discussing weapons and gear in terms that appear pretty much as gibberish to me. Talk of Prefix A > Prefix B > Prefix Q, "I'm looking for the one with the damage barrel", or discussions of maxed out versions of a given weapon type.

How are you all learning this stuff? Given the myriad combinations of parts and accessories possible within the generator, how do you know what the best possible combination is going to be for a given weapon? How can you make the determination of what combinations are or are not possible legitimately within the game? I'd really like to understand all of this but am in the dark at this point.

Where would one go to begin learning all of this? It would be nice to be able to assess the ballpark trade value of some of the crap I've got stored on my characters so that I can offer reasonable trades (when I'm able to play online again, that is), or to be able to spot something offered to me in a trade that I should steer clear of.

I'd appreciate any guidance you all can offer.

Thanks.

This will point you in some directions I believe:

1/ weapons by prefixes: read this
2/ weapons and names, prefixes and priorities: read this
3/ weapons parts and their effects: read this

I know the last link points to a site about something we don't like over here but it does have the best tables with all the weapon parts and their effects.

No problem man, just remember its not all 100% proven I guess, just use it as a handy reference.

Understood. At this point, any information that has even a modicum of accuracy puts me in a better position than I am in currently.

If ever in doubt about something, put a post in the gear question thread, people will most certainly help you out here.

The way I learned about the weapon parts was through using the GearCalc and making guns with WillowTree. I know a lot of people say making guns is wrong, but it is a very good way to learn about the game itself. I shouldn't be posting this, according to the rules, but this is more of a learning experience type thing. Meh.

As long as you're using it for educational purposes I don't see anything wrong.

Anyways, both of those programs are a good way to affiliate yourself with the different gun names, and such. The borderlands wiki has a decent thread about gun prefixes

The gear calc is not that accurate in my opinion. Its cool and its useful but you shouldnt be using it to prove a weapon's legitimacy.

How is it not accurate? Granted I have not used it that much, but I've noticed it being exactly right every time i've used it...

The same here; I reported it and Duncan improved it so it did work. Debugging takes time I guess Wink
