Well apparently it means you get 0.05 of the Mag total which will equal less than 1 so you get nothing.

Say your mag is 10

10 * 1.05 = 10.5

So you got half a bullet extra and the game won't recognize that, so you in reality got 0 bonus.

That "bonus" is so minisule that it doesnt actually do anything. 1.05x8=8.4, which I am assuming is rounded down to 8, which means that that bonus is a waste of a bonus slot unless you add in the bonus from one of the magazine mods that increases mag size. Then you'll actually be getting somewhere.

The reload time I'm not quite sure on since 0.8x0.90=0.72. Probably just rounded back up to 0.8 instead of down to 0.7. Either way the borked shotguns more than they fixed them. =\

I don't think they have truly though it all out.
Like the x 1.15 MAG on a single shot Rocket Launcher as a bonus .. or Synergy.

"I don't think they have truly thought." is all that is actually needed when discussing half of their decisions :)

Yep, I think there is much to be desired in regards to weapon bonus, mods and synergies.
If they are not going to offer the "standard" progression that typical MMO players expect, then at least get the one thing right this game relies upon, weapons, right and rewarding.

EDIT: I forgot this is not an MMO.

I think that they use a program that randomizes stats on the guns. That is why they always have fixes for the guns with each update. People realize this post it to the support forum and they will fix it some day.

I think you are right.
It can only be a computer that gives a BSOD on a perfectly good weapon right?
I need to run a recovery console on half a dozen weapon installs
