I'm trying to optimize the DPS and effectivity of my weapons. With that goal in mind, I would like to know how attachments that add damage effects to projectiles work.

Those attachments are:

I would like to know:

  • How do these attachments compare to each other in terms of damage added to each projectile?
  • How do they add damage?
    • Is it a multiplier or a constant amount added per projectile?
    • Are there attachments that will work better with low per projectile damage, high rate of fire weapons; instead of high per projectile damage, low rate of fire weapons, and vice-versa?
    • How do they stack with Upgrade Circuits that increase damage?
  • What are their effects on enemies? Does the enemy react differently, depending if the projectile that hit them comes with electricity, flame or acid?

If it's anything like the first two, fire should do Damage Over Time. Not sure about the rest – Ben Brocka Mar 1 '13 at 13:43
Unrelated pro-tip: Cutter with tons of damage upgrades + Stasis attachment is brutal. All you need is just enough damage to sever limbs in one shot with the cutter. – Ben Brocka Mar 1 '13 at 13:48
