View Full Version : How "flat" is the gear progression really?

So someone with a high ego rating is going to have all their perk slots unlocked and probably have maxed out those perks so in that sense they will be stronger.

But to what extent do guns actually get better? I'm only about 140 ego rating now and often times higher ego guns that have higher sales price AND are blue or otherwise rare sometimes seem worse to me than my lower ego cheap white guns.

Do guns actually get better as you get higher level or is everything sort of a side grade?

I find that the damage is very similar but my level 300 guns have more bonus things like 5% melee and 2% bonus crit when crouched

The damage is close, but like FailedSeppuku said, they get more bonuses and advantages. One of my weapons has a grenade recharge on kill, my shield has defense against the syphon element and reloads a part of my magazine when it breaks. Also, im not entirely sure on this but more specialized types of weapons start showing up with higher ego.
