    Right click on the gun in the inventory and select "Save Screenshot."


    I have that as a level 43 gun. I also have the Raw Equilizer which refills ammo for the revolver. They make a lovely pair. XD

    The Raw Equilizer is also a great gun for killing the mighty "blob." XD

    Is the 1101 Eirdian Lightning a sniper rifle? I have two Eirdian rifles but they have a fast fire rate not consistent with snipers.

    that ones a sniper rifle with a fast fire rate, but a slow recharge when the ammo runs out.

    now that i have it at level 4 skill for alien weapons, i get 4 shots out of it, and not 3 :)

    3/4 shots before recharging certainly sounds like a sniper. I think all Eirdian weapons are scoped (except "shotguns") so you can't tell if it is or isn't by the scope alone. I should get pictures of the dozen+ guns I'm packin. XD

    Eridian guns are on multiples of 9. :eek:

    Yes, I know I am a pack rat. :(

    :p

    im lev 29 played it for aprox 16 hrs and thats with only loading the game twice :p main weapon is a revolver wich dost 240 dammage with 4X acid (or what ever the hell it is) a class upgrade wich increased revolver dammage, rate of fire, incresed clip size, critical hits and ammo regen, so over all i can do anywhere up to 400 dammage a shot..

    cant post pics, just started work..


    also i have found a bug in the game.. with repeated continuios gameplay my right hand and half my arm goes numb and has been like this for over 16 hrs now :( looks like i need a break from the game

    Okay…PvP with non hackers and or cheaters is actually good in Borderlands. I wondered why I lost every time in a arena duel vs a no clipping Mordecai just seemed it was unbalanced as Roland. Figures people need an I win button or crutch.

    Anyway, I dueled my buddy from the UK 10 times last night and only lost twice at an awesome arena in Salt Flats and I forget the name as I am at work. Lilith is really good at kiting and melee if you know how to work her vs someone as skilled as you are. Striking is invaluable vs Brick because Berserk is just absurd in PvP haha. I was able to circle strafe him and just daze him to slow him down and he couldn’t do anything. I messed up and he got me with berserk twice. But overall, the PvP can be fun…I just wouldn’t do any online tourneys unless I knew who was playing and if they were cheating. I have a feeling that he will beat my Mordecai when we get Lilith and Brick to 50 and get some good weapons.

    I have a crazy fast reloading purple SMG I used…68 reload speed or something nuts with only a x1 fire proc. The rate of fire is ok @ 8.6 but with striking to 5, daze will happen regardless so I can whittle HP down like crazy.

    I do love this game.

    Ok, last time I will do this. My humble collection of goodies right now. I obviously have a lot more guns, but these were the ones that seemed the most unique considering all the posts before me. The SMG in the pic is the one that shoots in Spirals. I am not sure if anyone else has run across a gun like that cause I have found 2.

    awesome revolver for mord! it regens bullets way faster than what it says...the regen rate is faster than i can even fire 2 rounds. it relaods super quick too! dmg is pretty nice considering there aren't any elemental effects.

    i'm sure i'll get tired of farming soon but its still nice to find new 'rare' items.

    Damn, that thing is nice! My favorite element by far is explosive. I have not yet to this day found any ammo regenning weapons (although I did find the Dove, but that's not ammo regen).

    Sorry if this might offend but heck why those graphics?!?
    Each textured item's got a black outline like it's a kid's drawing?

    I personally really like it. It's different, and it goes well with the theme of the game. I thought it would bother me too much, but you totally get into it :) At least I do. I'm sure some won't be able to get over them, though.

    You have to play the game to understand, outlines in the inventory are meh, in the world playing at any decent resolution you wont notice a black outline at all. But if you look at still images you ca most likely pick them out, but in what game do you just stand still?

    once you start moving around you get used to the graphics.


    its good, stops it looking like another wannabe shooter - the graphics and the humour are what make this game so fun.

    I just ran into Rakinishu (sp?), he surprised me a bit, but once I seen his name I laughed, nice D2 reference.

    We artists like to call it an "illustrative filter" where the artist separates the colors and chooses lines that would best accentuate the object even if it means that it looks flat to some people.

    Other than my pompus response it's freaking hilariously awesome, and the art direction couldn't have been better.

    We Don't Need No Water... - x4 Fire. (SMG)
    Your Move, Creep - Fires a three-round burst per one ammo. (Repeater Pistols references the movie Robocop, the clue is one of the character's catchphrases, and the three-round burst is indicative of his signature sidearm, the Auto-9)

    Note: Some of these effects may not be 100% accurate.

    Also, some of these effects only apply to certain guns, such as those dropped by bosses, and the description relates to the boss itself, such as the description for "The Clipper" says "Be Careful Not to Drop It... Might Lose A Toe" belongs to the boss "Nine Toes " and is the reason for his namesake.
