I've completed the GUNSLINGER arenas soo many times and gotten gold, yet no EL GUAPO drops for me. What gives? Why do I only consistently get greens from GOLD SLINGER areana completions? Whats the motivation to ever play these for anyone, since they do not award an iota of rep? Wasted time on the part of TRION and money from our pockets for dead-end DLC?

How else can one get an El Guapo?

What exactly are the stats, etc. for El Guapo (DD?)? What's the deal with modding this weapon? How does it relate/compare to El Presidente?

On El Presidente, why is the weapon's somewhat unique appearance destroyed when modding this weapon? After modding it returns to the appearance of a regular modded revolver. Is this a bug, or were they they just to lazy to create a unique modded appearance for this weapon?

Thanks for your indulgence.

Regarding El Guapo. It's a novelty item. The name I'm fairly sure is from the movie, The Three Amigos. Specifically, this scene: http://youtu.be/-mTUmczVdik

You can see it says, "A plethora of bullets." All of the rolls are, well, more bullets. :p

Nice pic. Does it have NO mod slots available? Can it not be modded?

I just took that from in game a few minutes ago. I'll assume there's no mod slots on any of them. The same with El Presidente.

There's a post in the alpha forum by the developer who said El Guapo is a flavor item, which I take to mean it's along the lines of a novelty item. Something to just get. El Presidente is along those lines too.

It can be modded and upgraded to legendary. It's a fun pistol to use.

Hmm, now I'm intrigued. Anyone want to sell one around 5k ego?

So the el presidente mod appearance mess... bug or just lazy?

Hahaha. That's awesome!

"Jefe, would you say I have a plethora of bullets?"
"Yes, El Guapo. You have a plethora of bullets."

El Guapo and El Presidente can both have mod slots added to them through the ark salvage matrix. El Guapo can be traded while El Presidente cannot. I personally like El Guapo better.
