I found someone post an interesting view on how to judge weapons against each other, they took the base stats of the gun (RoF, Impact, Range, Stability, Reload, Aim Assist, and Mag Size) and added them together to come up with a gun score (my term). I found this to be a very interesting way to judge weapons and decided to take it a step further, I entered in all of the primary exotics, year 2 legendary, and some select year 1 legendary in to a spreadsheet to compare these weapons. I just wanted to share my results and maybe start a discussion. These gun scores do not factor in perks. (when comparing guns of different types I think it is best to not include mag size, because a single bullet on an auto rifle is not equal to a single bullet on a hand cannon) [b]Top 5 Exotics[/b] 1. MIDA Multi-Tool - 376 2. Hard Light - 373 3. The Jade Rabbit - 346 4. Boolean Gemini - 342 5. Necrochasm - 336 [b]Top 5 Legendary Primaries[/b] 1. Suros PDX-45 Pulse Rifle - 337 2. Palecontact JPK-43 Auto Rifle - 330 3. Not Like the Others Scout Rifle - 324 4. Tuonela SR4 Scout Rifle - 322 5. Hung Jury SR4 Scout Rifle - 321 When comparing guns of the same type Mag Size was factored in which did change the ranking of some guns: [b]Top 7 Scout Rifles:[/b] 1. MIDA Multi-Tool - 397 2. Boolean Gemini - 361 3. The Jade Rabbit - 353 4. Not Like the Others - 341 5. Suros DIS-47 - 340 6. Hung Jury - 338 7. Tuonela SR4 - 335 (For fun and for Crucible the Vision of Confulence came in at 354) [b]Top 7 Hand Cannons:[/b] 1. Kumakatok HC4 - 312 2. The Water Star - 311 3. Ghaeris-D - 310 4. The Revelator - 309 5. Uffern HC4 - 303 6. Finnala's Peril - 295 7. Down and Doubt 00-00 - 293 (For fun and Fatebringer came in at 281) [b]Top 7 Pulse Rifles:[/b] 1. Suros PDX-45 - 364 2. Nirwen's Mercy - 348 3. Hawksaw - 346 4. Apple of Discord - 344 5. Grasp of Malok - 341 6. Suros PDX-41 - 340 7. The Villainy - 339 (For fun the Messenger came in at 319) [b]Top 7 Auto Rifles:[/b] 1. Hard Light - 413 2. Nechrochasm - 390 3. Paleocontact JPK-43 - 387 4. Monte Carlo - 371 5. Dictrune of Passing - 369 6. Arminius-D - 361 7. Zhalo Supercall - 358 [b]Some of the surprising results were:[/b] 1. The lack of exotics in the hand cannons and pulse rifles 2. The high score of Nechrochasm 3. Hung Jury coming in at 6 under the scout rifles 4. The amount of scout rifles in the top legendaries of all types 5. The low scores of Fatebringer and Messenger [b]Some not so surprising results:[/b] 1. The high score of MIDA [b]#BringMIDABack[/b] 2. The top pulse rifles are the ones seen very commonly in crucible If anyone can show me a way to make a google doc public for everyone to view, while keeping it locked from editing I can include the link to it hear if you wanna dig deeper. This is a work in progress and I feel like the best way to really give a gun a good score would be to adjust the score, by maybe doing a weighted average giving certain stats like stability more importance.
