If there are any excellent weapon rolls, you'll see them here. If there's no god rolls this week, I'll take what I think the best weapon from tier 2 is, and place it here. Tier 2: Weapons in the tier 2 section aren't as good, but I think are still worth your time for one reason or another. Perhaps it's a weapon just one perk off from being a god roll, or desperation buys for people who are still missing a certain something from their loadout (looking at you, Palindrome). Tier 3: This tier is for people with a bunch of bonus marks to spend. This category will contain excellent rolls for underused weapon archetypes, as well as guns that just generally caught my eye. Basically this is where you'll want to look if you really want to mix up your loadouts.
