why is there the red glow around them?
i thought they are something special, but i cant see any difference to other weapons.
is there a reason for this?

Used to help with Missions. They're gone once they run out of ammo, or you run out of a certain range(i think).

I have seen a number that are not "special weapons". They are normal weapon drops, usually greys/white I think, I dont' keep close track since it is usually in the middle of a combat and I am hoping it is a temporary "special weapon" which also have the red glow.

It just means that the weapon has an elemental proc. if youre talking about regular drops. The "special weapons" used for some missions are marked the same way.

I've experienced this as well. Red glow as if it were a special weapon but a its just a standard weapon drop

you are using a Von Bach Ego implant, this is why it reacts to other VBI products.

Or atleast thats what I tell myself for it to make some sort of sense.

is it realy only the elemental proc?
i could swear that all of them were VBI weapons, and not all of them with an element

Yes it is , if its a green or blue weapon it will glow green or blue but that red thing will float about it if it has an elemental proc. i remember when they added it in alpha and they mentioned it in the patch notes.

no it is not.
found a red glowing non elemental VBI rocketlauncher a few minutes agoI found a pistol...or maybe it was a Shotgun that was glowing and picked it up (I don't pick up the commons/whites anymore) and it didn't have an element either. It did however, have 3 mod slots open on it already (stock, mag and scope). So I don't think it's just for elements, but also telling you that the weapon may have some mod slots open (so you don't have to open them/invest salvage; in other words, nice basic drop that you can buff on the cheap with some standard mods or whatever).

It's a bug. That red glow should only appear for special world weapons.
