    “It’s a helluva thing… ”

    Got this on an orange revolver (Level 25 I think). it’s bonuses were:
    +100% damage
    2.7x weapon zoom
    +200% Crit Damage

    I’m guessing it’s the +100% Damage, haven’t seen any weapons with that much +damage before.

    A quick note while i am here, the “A hunter lives amongst the stars” quote usually belongs to the orion sniper rifles.

    For “Sniper Rifles Are For Chumps” I am pretty sure it makes the accuracy really high, +60% accuracy, plus the gun itself has 70% accuracy (Shotguns)

  • TailSwallower

    The ultimate close quarters feline – I think this is SMG only, not 100% sure of what it signifies, but I think it’s either:
    a) huge clip
    b) low accuracy
    c) no scope
    d) all or a combination of the above

    I’ve got it on:
    KKA4 PATROL WILDCAT (SMG) (Orange)
    Damage: 56
    Accuracy: 20.0
    Fire Rate: 6.9
    70 Bullets in the clip
    The ultimate close quarters feline

    I also have a gun with the red text “Pele demands a sacrifice”. Not sure if this is different to “Pele needs a sacrifice” or if whoever put that up got it wrong.

    That’s on the:
    GGN C COBALT VOLCANO (Sniper Rifle) (Orange)
    Damage: 382
    Accuracy: 96.6
    Fire Rate: 0.8
    6 Bullets in the clip
    Highly effective vs Flesh
    x4 chance to light enemies on fire
    Pele demands a sacrifice! (red text)
    Very high elemental effect chance

    A hunter lives among the stars…

    This one is on a sniper I got. It is actually not a random lightning near the user, it does an aoe lightning effect when it hits a lot of times (very powerful). If you miss it can kind of do a random lightning thing sometimes. I have a feeling it is like the Lightning Never strikes the same place twice, but it can strike freaking everywhere! one, just on a sniper.

    Drop The Hammer – Shoots the pattern of a war hammer(like the Have a nice day! stat – smiley face)

    Thwack! – Can ignore shields/armor

    i also got an alien gun called 100110101010 (or something like that) cannon and it has a red text called 100110101010111

    The ultimate close quarters feline – shoots bullets in a corkscrew trajectory that can bounce off walls

    My ultimate close quarters feline definitely doesn’t do that. No corkscrew trajectory, and no bouncing. Like I said upthread, all it’s got is really poor accuracy and a really high ammo count.

    “Pele needs a sacrifice” is found on the Volcano Sniper rifle (orange) and all it means is that the incendiary effect occurs 100% of the time.

    FR – 3.6

    Red text: Pain Heals.
    +46% Damage
    +1 Magazine Size
    +18% Recoil Reduction

    As far as I can tell…. it seems to give a constant +1 or +2 health regeneration

    I actually just got a gun last night called something “savior”. It is an SMG and the red text is “Hallelujah!” This gun shoots the corkscrew bullets that bounce off walls.

    Got the feeling in the text box below the weapons is sometimes more text than you can see. As I compared the german and the english versions of the game, I found a missing text line caused by a longer german red text (forgot which it was) that needed 2 lines instead of 1 in the english one. But the weapon effect (hidden in the german) worked in both versions as well, unseen by my german homies. Hate that word.

    Have a nice day ! Fires Smiley Faces (unconfirmed)

    Oh yes it does fire smily faces, shotgun only, Fire damage x1,x2, limited range for effect. Also the damage multiplyer should be X9

  • Ptrgreat
    January 11, 2010 at 1:01 pm

    A watchful eye : Unknown effects
    Usually a 4.0x Zoom, increased accuracy at range for snipers. Higher Probability of critical occouring due to increased accuracy. it should greatly reduce the weapon sway, that is how the accuracy is increased.

  • Ptrgreat
    January 11, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    Bring out your Dead! :

    100% chance of causing corosion damage, especaially effective against armor. High corosion damage once corosion starts.

  • Ptrgreat
    January 11, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    One Bad Dog : Massive Clip (unconfirmed)

    For shotguns only. 20 shot, round style clip. Poor accuracy and fire rate.

  • Ptrgreat
    January 11, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Your Move, Creep. :

  • Ptrgreat
    January 11, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    I spy with my little eye : Unknown effects

    High 4.0x zoom for SMG. Small looking scope on top of gun. Only on a Hyperion. It is a quest reward.

  • Ptrgreat
    January 11, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Pele needs a sacrifice! : Unconfirmed Effects (possibly random elements)

    Leaves a huge fire ball on the target. Takes 5 seconds to disperse. Causes continious fire damage to anything in the fire ball’s area of effect. Sniper Rifles only. x4 Fire damage. Maliwan manufacturer only.

  • Ptrgreat

    Pele needs a sacrifice! = explosion with a big area effect, and anyone who doesnt die catches on fire. My favorite sniper uses it.
