Stolen Pixels #140: The Circle of Ammunition

Thats disgusting but so true. I guess I tried thinking about it but I realized it was probably best just to not think about the piles of random crap (literally) and the toilets I was rummaging through.

2-bullet revolvers tend to deal >300 damage, and compared to the 100-120 6-bullet revolvers that's a lot.
A Tediore revolver reloads insanely fast (faster than you shoot usually), so it's no biggie if you find a Tediore.
But that can be the hardest part...

To each their own, eh.

I used a couple of times 2 bullets shotgun and pistols. They were really good, when they hit something. The problem was when they don't. But you can have always something else to finish the job, so...
Besides, there so many weapons you'll probably stumble upon the right one for you before you could even rant about it.
Great game, indeed...
:-D

The double shot shotguns at least tend to be stupidly useful, their damage output is usually around 180% of the current damage curve, and they tend to have a vast bump to reload spead. The two shot revolvers and sniper rifles though... actually, are there two shot sniper rifles? ...are mostly worthless.

Now, all Shamus needs to do is explain to me how my Soldier - Heavy gunner's two shot shotgun can fire five times between reloads? Or how my six chamber revolvers can fire 15 times before needing to reload.

Well that's a nice way of recycling that i really don't mind in a hostile location as Boderlands :)

I believe you've encountered the Evil Dead syndrome. "Ash from the Evil Dead series uses a sawed-off shotgun that not only never runs out of shells, but can also blow a sword in half." - from TVTropes.

There is a hillarious weapon, a repeater named The Dove, that consumes no ammo whatsoever.

...that is both brilliantly awesome and well I don't think I can play the game the same as before now =.=

TheFacelessOne:
Wow...umm...just, wow Shamus.

You have a hell of a lot of spare time, don't you?

I shudder to think what thoughts cross his mind during that spare time.

Shudder.

There are many guns that aren't that good, imprecise sniper rifles, 2 shots only pistols, and so on.
But you can always keep 'em only to sell it later. And there is always THAT weapon that is so good you wish you could sleep with.
If all the weapons were good nobody would sell anything ever.
In this way you know what to keep and what to sell, I think...

I had a elemental fire revolver that only had a 2 shot cylinder,but it was more powerful than the 6 shot revolver I traded to a friend.
Cant wait until I get my 360 back.

That one line about one weapon thats so good you wish you could sleep with..reminds me of Full Metal Jacket.

Not to mention the fact that there seem to be ammo-delivering mailmen roaming around, filling everybody's mailboxes with bullets. Thanks, this made me laugh!

I have a 2 shot revolver that shoots shotgun shells. So it does 150x7 dmg, but its accuracy is kind of low 73%. Its like a really nice shotgun. Hellfire SMGs, awesome guns, everything will burn, unless it is naturally on fire. Elemental damage stacks so the siren just feels so over powered to me.

Wow, this could actually fit in an episode of National Geographic Explorer. This is all the more funny to me since two nights ago I watched streaming of a Borderlands game and one of the players asked that, "Why do you find ammo in a crapper?" I would think the reservoir would be a better place.
This also reminds me of a Left 4 Dead map, Night Terror, where one saferoom has a bathroom where the health packs are kept. Lo and behold one is sitting in the bowl. And do any of the bots get that one? No.(Sometimes I think they are smarter than they act) If I am late to the party I get to pick that one up. (And if you have played Night Terror you know you will be needing that health pack.)

I don't think those are supposed to be toilets so much as they are toilets retrofitted into chests. Granted, they hardly need much excuse - it seems like every mailbox in that game either has ammo or a wad of cash in it. Kick over a rock and you find somebody's rainy day fund. No wonder greedy people from all over the universe are attracted to Pandora.

Well, this makes perfect sense. Maybe you can also explain how necromorphs in Dead Space get ammo they drop, when they're made of bodies with no ammo in possession? You know, the black ones.

Lol, the funniest one in quite a while.

oppp7:
Are bullets scarce? Whenever I see gameplay videos everyone seems to not shoot until they're certain they can get a headshot.

I litterably drown in ammo for the guns i don't use, anything other than that i just buy from the vendors. 2 shot kill revolver at the moment.

So I guess they found a cure for lead poisoning indigestion on this crazy ass planet... So it's still counts as a kill if you shoot a guy in the gob then?

Good comic I guess... Even though logic don't mean crap in games... literally.

You think shitting bullets is odd?

How about big birds that eat rockets. THAT'S messed, or even a 1 ups man ship, I've seen rockets in toilets.

The two-shot revolvers (Vitriolic Justice in particular) have been my favorite. They hit harder than anything else in the game. They seem made just for us gunslinger hunters, too, with our improved reload times and our headshot perks (2 shells in one magazine really emphasizes precision). Also, you have to take into account that a weapon of lesser quality manufacture is in fact going to be imprecise.

I'm a solider, and thus have the "Over clip something" perk, so my 2 shot revolver actually has 4 shots. Oh and each shot does 609 dammage. As each shot actually fires 7 bullets that each do 87 dammage (but only counts as 1 bullet ammo wise). Think about a shotgun that you can snipe with and has a +10 ammo regen, and you got the picture :D

bullets are like candies. you can find them on the discount isle of the toidey store after some guy takes a shit in a toidey there

You'd think people wouldn't need the guns if they pooed the ammo -- all they'd have to do is bend over and "fire away" :P

Now that explains it all!

I did wonder why there was always ammo in the toilets, or even the fridge. Who keeps ammo in fridge? Anywho, good comic.

Lol, old thread but reminded of WoW grizzly hill quest at the inn. You eat some delicious seeds from a bucket that happened to be magic seeds.
Innkeeper gives you some laxatives to purge the seeds from your system, you run to the toilet, you purge the seeds and have to retrieve them from the toilet and wash them and in the end you return to the inkeeper that asks the assistant to bring back the bucket and place the seeds there cause ANOTHER ONE had tried to eat them!!

After that I had to run to the toilet in real life.
