I was recently playing Borderlands online and was given a really great Pearlescent Serpens Assault Rifle by someone who was much higher level (at the time). I'd not seen any Pearlescent guns before so was rather excited - I snatched it up and began systematically annihilating all of Pandora's wildlife.
It's a great gun, very powerful and quite accurate, which made me wonder if I'm unknowingly using a modded weapon. I looked up the Serpens rifles online and found that mine seems to be of above average awesomeness. In particular, it fires 3 rounds at once.
In any case, whether this particular weapon is modded or not, is there a way to tell which weapons are modded and which are not?
