Origin ID here is Ryusko, preferably looking for a West Coast region, but it's all good. Just looking to play with some bombers!

I haven't done any formal tests with non e-tech, but just using them in the field it feels much higher. Also, each set was 240 shots, not 60. I just broke each into 4 trials of 60 because that's how I took down my data (because a page of 240 hash marks gets unwieldy!) I haven't found any e-tech snipers or smgs, but I have at least a sniper at level 50 that I plan to test. I ran across another e-tech pistol and had very similar results, but again did not run a full 240 shot test with it.

I'll put the TL,DR up front, and have the data wall down below. So, I was super excited to get a nice meaty e-tech shock Maliwan pistol on my elemental Mechromancer. I was a bit dissapointed, though, since it seemed to be electrocuting less than it should be. I did a few trials and found a much smaller (almost insignificant) bonus to electrocute chance. I tried with some more weapons, and found really odd results. A rare sniper got a massive bonus, even when I cleared my talents and class mod. A green SMG, on the other hand, was more or less in line with expectations. Is anyone able to weigh in on these results?

TLDR data (with 50% bonus chance to electrocute, 240 shots per test):
Pistol: 8.97% extra chance
Sniper: 87.73% extra chance
SMG: 37.36% extra chance

Now, the real fun stuff: hard numbers!
