Post your best gun!

#1 Edited by Pie (7079 posts) -

MOD EDIT: Please include the level requirement of the gun you are posting about!


I posted this a day early because by the sounds of it a lot of you have got the game already and when the rest of us get the game tommorow and find the "SUPER AWESOME MEGA GUNZ" you'll want somewhere to post it without making your own thread. Also becuase someone was bound to post this thread and I need MEGAZ THREADZ.
Im English and therefore wont have the game until Friday......

Just found a Blue Pistol with

42 Dmg
4.0 x Scope
+40% Fire Rate 
18 Clip Mag
 
Im only level 12 so I thought it was pretty damn good haha

#3 Posted by Renahzor (991 posts) -

so far the most ridiculous thing ive seen is my revolver:
 
56 Dmg x7
+55% reload speed
+42% accuracy.
 
At level 11, this gun shoots 7 pellets hitting for 56 *each* bringing the grand total to a bit over 350(its like a revolver shotgun, but with no spread, so awesome.  only real issue is the 2 shot mag, but I was one shotting lvl 19 Skags (only badasses took more) with it tonight in 2 player co-op.  :)

My revolver is:  
DL Bloody Justice 
138 DMG, 94.4 AC, .9 FR 
+68% DMG, +100% Melee DMG, +33% AC 
 
BUT! Look at this one... 
 
Sniper: 
GGN350 Colbalt Volcano 
272 DMG, 98.7 AC, .9 FR 
Highly Effective vs Flesh, Chance to light enemies on fire, Pele dmenads a sacrifice, Very high chance of elemental.  
 It's worth 20,000! And it's orange!

Dude, I let out a raucous early 20's whoop. That was so over the top immature that I couldn't help but crack up. It's like the developers all got together in a room, tapped a keg, and threw ideas back and forth. Amazing. Games that don't take themselves too seriously really work for me.

Ive had this ridiculous SMG since lvl 13ish, and its been my best gun since.  Everything dies
 
Its an explosive SMG
34 -damage
84 accuracy
12.5 firing rate
52 clip size
 
2.7 weapon zoom,
very high elemental  effect chance
 
this plus my class mod which gives me +44% SMG damage and +30% elemental effect chance and my skills means everything explodes for all time

#11 Posted by JokerClown88 (1051 posts) -

Ill post my best gun later when I can get home.
#12 Posted by mikeeegeee (1554 posts) -

.... I have to play this game.

#13 Posted by MikkaQ (10283 posts) -

What's this? No love for Sledge's shotgun? That shit is nuts! It has zero accuracy, so you have to be RIGHT up in their grill, but  it fires a two shot shotgun burst, depleting the whole clip. So basically it fires slow as fuck, but if you hit 'em... they're gone. Also it's the best for healing, with maxed out cauterize I can heal over 400 HP in one shot. Really good for conserving ammo.

#14 Posted by xyzygy (9949 posts) -

So I was playing last night and found another great weapon. It's actually a purple revolver I bought from the item of the day. The have some nice stuff there sometimes. It only does 176 damage, but it has x4 shock explosions with a very high chance to hit elementally and a wicked fast reload. It's a Maliwan, of course. It works so good!

#15 Posted by JokerClown88 (1051 posts) -

Here is my loadout.  Keep in mind that I am playing as Lilith.

Sigh, all this waiting for the european PC version is making me very very unstable.

#17 Edited by Chokobo (1228 posts) -

157 damage
90.4 accuracy
1.9 fire rate
"UNENDING FIREPOWER"
+11 ammo regeneration
+58% Reload speed
2.8x weapon zoom
 
Generally does 350 damage per shot after spec and proficiency bonuses.
 
Also using Warmonger class mod
+22% team damage
+2 payback
+2 hardened
+3 revenge

#18 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

I picked up an odd looking gun that was named in binary code.  It looks like some sort of alien sniper rifle and it says it does 575 damage, but I can't use it yet since it's a level 19 requirement.

#19 Posted by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

My best is a Legendary shotgun.  I don't have the details at the moment, but it's a beast.  I do about 1200 damage at point blank range with it.  Best part is that it's a "x7" semi-auto.  = D

#20 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

I've had a couple of ridiculous guns in my time with Borderlands... Right now I'm rocking a double-barreled shotgun you get from a boss fight; it fires both barrels simultaneously, so it basically has a one-shot clip, which is super unfortunate. I also have an scope-less sniper rifle you get from another boss fight that unleashes pure, unadulterated rage upon its targets (seriously, I can take out Badass Bruisers with three crits from this baby) and has a reasonably high rate of fire for a sniper. My last gun is a purple pistol I've had since level 13... It's pure madness that the gun is so good that it's lasted me through level 21.

#21 Edited by raynate2022 (301 posts) -
SPR43 C Vitriolic Death (Shotgun)
Dmg...46x7
Acc...66.7
FR...1.0
Highly Effective vs Armor
Chance to Corrode Enemies
Very High Elemental Effect Chance
 
Been using this gun for about 10 levels. Still knocks down everything
#22 Posted by Expletive (1057 posts) -

I have been really enjoying the Bloody justice Revolver, I can literally fucking blow guys in half with one shot. Seriously, they end up in TWO goddamn pieces. 

#23 Posted by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

So no one has gotten 10110 yet?  My buddy just had it drop.  The red text is great on it.

#24 Posted by TimeWaffle (946 posts) -

my best is a combat rifle 
dmg 139 
accuracy 90.4
fire rate 15 
+50% reload speed
+102% damage 
1.4x weapon zoom

#25 Posted by jakob187 (21665 posts) -

Sledge's Shotgun = vendor trash.

#26 Posted by tbone81889 (162 posts) -

I got a Red Devil Rocket that does over 400 damage a shot.  Unfortunately, I'm not a high enough level yet to use it.   

#27 Posted by raynate2022 (301 posts) -
@jakob187: Ya I've gotten a few alien guns. From what I've seen they're all garbage. Inaccurate as hell and not much dmg. The infinite ammo is nice but it's takes too long for them to recharge. 
#28 Posted by Shankus (44 posts) -

Completely agree! 
 
..at what level do you start finding class mods?

Man, 10110 is a GREAT gun.  My buddy got ahold of it through a quest (the bastard), and it's actually quite accurate and the recharge time on it isn't that bad.  At 27, he was busting 24s and 25s in one shot.  Quite interesting. 
 
I picked up an Eridian gun earlier that was basically CRAP.  Massive spread to it, couldn't hit crap, and when it did, it barely knicked the enemy.
#30 Posted by Sdoots (205 posts) -

My best gun is an orange combat rifle, name is something like "War Monger" It has a relatively average magazine at only 12 rounds, but the reload speed is pretty quick. Each round does around 150 damage, and it fires in three round bursts. In addition, it regenerates ammo. By the time you've emptied a mag, you've already got it back. It also has a pretty nice zoom, and works beautifully at any range. It's really nice for me, because as a tank, I don't have any of the ammo regen buffs that Roland would get from his skill tree, so I'm getting one of that characters big perks on a character that is for all intents and purposes a bullet sponge. 999 health, 666 shield at the moment, kind of cool.

#31 Posted by Shadow (4979 posts) -

I find it sad that both the orange-rarity guns I've found have sucked.  There was an infinite ammo magnum....but the magnum itself was crap.  There was also a rocket launcher that let me tell it when to explode in midair, but it was otherwise really crappy...I'm sad now

#32 Posted by Out_On_Bail (1545 posts) -

So far, at level 36, my best weapon is a level 28 shotgun. 6 shot bursts and rockets. It's good for AOE but not for a single target. I can lay out a herd of rakks in 1 trigger squeeze.  It's also got a scope and because the 6 shots are rockets it has good range, but it spreads a lot the farther it gets. All the same it's a badass weapon. 
 
I have a couple more good guns but that's the best.

If you mean that gun with the binary code on it, I had it drop the other day but I don't ever use it. It's some sort of energy burst thing that only has 3 shots (for me) and I've found it to be cool but not effective enough.

#35 Edited by Evilsbane (4595 posts) -

Found a purple sniper last Night ( I am doing this off memory but I am sure this is it)
 
Damg: 222
Accuracy: 93.2
Firerate: 2.7
Increased Firerate 48%
Enhanced magazine Clip +5 (for a total of 10)
Has electric damage x4
Highly effective against shields
Extremely high chance to shock enemies
 Zoom was good to don't remember that stat

Its level 22 I am at 19 so can't wait to use it.

#36 Edited by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I am still pretty fresh to the game at the moment, but lately I've been using this pistol that has done wonders for me so far:
 
RF4 Nasty Repeater
Damage: 22
Accuracy: 87.2
Fire Rate: 3.0
+13% Magazine Size
+53% Damage
 
I am only at level eight and I don't have much money, so I'm literally working with what I've got.
 
EDIT: Scrap what I said before. I purchased a shotgun that is awesome!
 
SPR15 Terrible Shotgun
Damage: 44 (x9)
Accuracy: 63.9
Fire Rate: 0.4
+158% Damage
 
So, basically, when I shoot skags and bandits, they fuckin' BLOW apart. It's quite amazing.

So I finally got to level 19 so I could use my weird alien weapon.  It's not the one that you described since there is no red text, but it looks really funky (kind of like something out of Prey) and it shoots this big blob of purple matter that annihilates whatever it hits. 
#38 Posted by ArchScabby (5809 posts) -

I've got a question, which means more rare purple or blue?  And then what colors come after that?

#39 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -
@ArchScabby said:

White-Green-Blue-Purple-Orange, in order from most common to rarest.

Thanks dude.
#41 Posted by Renahzor (991 posts) -

there are also several levels of legendary, from yellowish to dark orange, and finally the best items in a kind of glowing white text.

#42 Posted by TheGremp (2064 posts) -

Looking at all these stats is bringing tears to my eyes. I NEED THIS GAME.

#43 Posted by Pie (7079 posts) -

Got the game today and am a level 12 soldier.
Just brought a purple/orange repeater pistol (the guns orange whilst the text is purple, which is right?)
Damge:40
Accuracy:83.1
Fire rate:24.3
 
Burst fire
+500% burst fire
+66% Fire rate
+50% Damge
 
My dream gun in this was a machine pistol so im pretty happy. I havent even attempted going full auto with this yet becuase it would just tear through it in an instant however pistol ammo is for the cheaps so it wouldnt even matter. Look at the accuracy on this aswell, even though it fires off its 16 round magazine in an instant it still remains accurate. Awesome gun

#44 Posted by TheLegendofLuke (563 posts) -

I suppose my best gun would be the legendary revolver (from a quest) with unlimited ammo, but it's ass and I only use it to conserve ammo.  
 
I really liked the Elephant gun, but now that I've changed zones and the enemies have gone up in level it doesn't seem to be as effective, so I guess it's back to the grindstone for me until I find a weapon set I'm happy with...again.

#45 Posted by Chokobo (1228 posts) -

idk how rare this is or if it's always in this certain quest, but I just found a legendary rocket launcher.
 
RPG51 Big Redemption
1177 Dmg.
88.8 Acc.
0.8 FR
"Monster Kill"
+128% Damage
+14% FR
1.9x zoom

Red text translates to "OMG".  Those were the first words out of my mouth when my friend popped a shot off with it!  LOL

Lol, that's funny. I didn't even bother to try to translate it, I wish I had. I'm loving this game so much for all these little things that make me laugh.

It depends. Being that the drops are so randomized, one guy could go into that fight with a weapon of god, while the next guy could go into that same fight with a pea shooter. It all depends on how lucky you've been.
