An accessory (if it does come equipped on a weapon) will enhance something about performance, usually while altering the name of the weapon. The name change will be a prefix title that gives a clue as to the nature of the accessory. You can change several aspects of gun performance with accessories:

Stability
Stability affect the sway of the weapon. Foregrip attachments help keep sway under control.
Melee Damage
A bayonet greatly increases melee damage when the weapon is equipped and in hand.
Bullet Damage
The damage of the bullets themselves may be increased directly, which is tough to argue with as a bonus.
Wild Bullets
A Bandit accessory if ever there was one, bullets may be designed to have wide, unpredictable spread. If you wonder how a wild, inaccurate gun could ever be useful, that just means you haven't yet found rakk swarms or Rabid Stalkers.
Bullet Speed
Hotter ammunition leads to a faster projectile, making the weapon easier to aim across longer ranges.
Magazine Size
It's hard to say no to more rounds than usual in a magazine, and you just might get it.
Accuracy
The likelihood that the barrel will put the projectile right where you're pointing can be improved with attachments like laser sights that improve accuracy.

E-Tech barrels[edit | edit source]

Purple grade weapons are already very rare, and rarer still are the purple grade weapons outfitted with E-Tech enabled barrels. These guns project energy bolts rather than regular-old caveman-like kinetic ammunition. Depending on the gun type and the manufacturer, E-Tech barrels perform differently even if they result in guns from different brands ending up with the same name. If you’re lucky enough to happen upon these weapons, don’t part with them without some serious testing. It is not yet known how the Bandit-made brand acquired the technology to spell “Plasma Caster” correctly on their alien SMG.

Accessory Prefixes[edit | edit source]

With few exceptions for uniquely titled weapons, each gun’s name is comprised of a prefix and a title: “Operational Strike,” “Auditing Competition,” “Ee’nastick Callipeen,” and so on. The first part is the prefix, the second part is the title. These names can tell you a lot about the guns they describe, if you know what the terms mean. This can help you determine how one gun’s performance differs from others of similar construction. It also alerts you to special traits guns can have that aren’t necessarily spelled out on the stat card.

If a gun is equipped with an accessory or post-construction modification, the prefix will reflect it, and clue you in to the nature of the bonus.
