As the title suggests, what did you rush to get the rarity upgraded before the nerf patch?

08-05-2014, 03:34 PM

My brutal zagger, got it to purple, then left it as Im still working on my assassin zagger. Then ama sell the suckers.

08-05-2014, 03:37 PM
a Needler i carried with me since a few weeks... always not sure if its worth upgrading

08-05-2014, 03:38 PM
I shamefully spent my rep on arkforge to get something changed, an well it's all good

A VOT Tachmag Pulser for monkey spanking with assassin and some nice rolls and built in Rad.

This Tachmag is fast becoming my fav weapon, apart from my healer (which was my other pre-nerf upgrade) as my main on coop missions and I used to use an FRC SAW almost exclusively. Unlike real life however, a gun spitting 111 bullets doesn't make anyone run for cover, so I just mow 'em down with the Tachmag and frantically search the ground for more ammo at every opportunity.
If I had enough, it would have also upped the canker i got 25 mins before the servers came down, but even green and unmodded... this canker is OP

Vash u cant beat me how are u gonna beat tom lol

The last items i upgraded to purple were 2 Sluggers i obtained yesterday. One without nano, and another one with Fire nano (which i obtained for free from a generous player).
I don't plan to use them for PvP, so i didn't bother to look for a Rad one.
For PvP i got a recently purple'd Tachmag Pulser with Rad nano. From the day i started to use it, i began actually killing people instead of being the prey.

08-05-2014, 03:45 PM
My Zagger! Though I still need mods for it :P

08-05-2014, 03:45 PM
the last thing i upped to purple was my gladiator. i spent nearly 700k having other people upgrade for me, and got a few upgraded myself (wolfhound, hogleg, etc)

LOL theres no challenge in trying to beat you ya big sissy. Toms way more fun to try and get. As I remember it past two games I played in you got nowhere near him. I took him for his deaths and noone else.

I put a bunch of stuff in the Salvage Matrix and then decided "Why even bother" and cancelled them all. So the answer was nothing.
I just kind of feel like throwing in the towel with how much the game redefines itself over and over. I feel defeated and just don't care.

08-05-2014, 03:59 PM
I bought one for each of my characters
Rep vendor votan pulser (200 rep from the machine)
fire nano
XP: x1.10 crit on second try - 10% crit from hip on alt
x0.85 reload (yes a white roll)
x0.90 reload
x1.05 dmg
10% ego on crit
x1.10 dmg on main - x1.10 fire rate on alt

its a sweet gun and I figured those rep weapons with set rolls will be encrypted. I had already pulled 3 legendary crime fighters so no need to take a green to OJ. I kinda already had my perfect/ideal weapons so I didn't upgrade very much and when I did they were usually purples.

late last night I did get this from an arkfall

vbi short barrel
XP: none
x0.95 reload
x0.90 reload
x0.85 reload

I didn't really have the forge to upgrade it and I mentioned it in clan chat, ended up selling to a clan mate. He made it legendary and got the x0.70 reload on it. I was happy to give that little blue the reward it deserved

Couldn't have said it much better myself.

I farmed to upgrade 3 weapons to purple, double crit rad Quick Repeater, blue crit assassin Wolf and a fire Pulser.

08-05-2014, 04:02 PM
Two VBI Guns, SMG, and an AR. Both had been blue, and had somehow escaped my "SELL IT ALL!" tendancies for anything below Purple at vendors. The fact they did so for over a year still surprises me. Anyway, after messing around with them, I was stunned to find they still had their Shock melee nano intact. No good for PVP, but useful for PVE, especially since wacking one can stun an entire mob. The AR is Siphon, with no recoil, and the SMG is shock, and has a x2.0 crit multiplier. But, since both have good reload rolls on them, I find myself constantly changing from the native one, to Incendiary, or Radiation depending on what I'm doing.

Nothing because i am only ~3k ego and don't wanna spend the forge to keep anything purple around for the journey to 5k. I can't help it as i was raised by Jewish attorneys, sadly. happymerchant.png

Probably should've upgraded my Needler for the monkey business, oh well.

08-05-2014, 04:49 PM
Got this as a blue rarity drop from Gunslinger lockbox I opened after doing weekly contracts. Upped it all the way as the last item i upped.

Got an Orange VBI CS-X before everything went dark, I always found it quite useful when you have to clean one of those checkpoints surrounded by the infected.

Nothing not a dang thing, I have 452 oranges, more shields than I know what to do with and enough weapons to start a war.

08-05-2014, 07:07 PM
Bought a green qm zagger with a t4 rapid shot pod. No nano ego 350xx or so and took it up to oj. Then rolled speed boost on my second try.
Bought a top notch big boomer and took that up to oj. Ok roll ended up being 2xvelocity, yuck. Re rolled it a few times, haven't even got a second damage roll on it yet.

08-05-2014, 07:24 PM
I upgraded a blue crimefighter with syphon and triple mag to OJ and got stowed weapon and Damage... then proceeded to lag our co-op map out with 4 people all using them in a barage of explosions... I felt like Mr Torgue from Borderlands 2 (Hated the game, love Mr Torgue). Actually got all 4 of us critted out... twice... Love that gun :)

same here bud n before that my faction boomer

My faction Boomer was already at purple.
Sadly i had to dispose of a green zagger, a green Casthitan springer and half a dozen of Double crit Vot Pulsers and Tachmag Pulsers.

The El Diablo is a real killing machine, that one i had to upgrade.

But i have good news, the weapon that i upgraded b4 that was a QM Fire Zagger :)
