    Hey @ViperSY, this seems to be the traits issue that arose from 1.10. It has since been fixed.

    This bug has clearly not been fixed. I thought the extra damage points on the lesser weapons was due to the traits being unlocked on the lesser weapon but when you upgrade a weapon the damage level that the weapon shows increases making it part of the overall survivors damage points, so this is still not working properly

    Maybe I'm not understanding the way the Damage value is calculated. I thought there's a 'base' value for the survivor, and a power level for the weapon, and these two are added to get the overall damage. I also thought the power level shown for the weapon takes the weapon's traits into account.

    But - this doesn't seem to be happening consistently.
    It 'appears' from the first three screenshots that my survivor has a base value of 315:

    The calculation goes a bit skewed here, but not a biggie:

    But, this is where all rules seem to get disobeyed:

    Why does this weapon give the highest overall damage?

    I've posted an explanation that needs approval, but here's a quick heads up:
    This is working as expected. The Lethal and Health Boost traits are only calculated when showing the overall weapon/armour level, and not ag

    I think I know what's going on: the 'Lethal' trait on weapons, and the 'Health Boost' trait on armour lead to the overall increased Damage/Health.

    There just appears to be a minor bug where the damage/health of weapons/armour doesn't take this into account when showing values for the item - but correctly it does take it into account when showing the calculated Damage/Health.
    So, in my last screenshot above, the *611* value for the gun is correct (due to the Lethal trait), but the *217* value is not. It appears that All "Rare 12" weapons show the same value, irrespective of traits.
    So, one bug leads to another: as I have weapons that have a power level above 217, I get the exclamation mark showing there are weapons with higher power - whereas in reality, when the Traits are taken into account that isn't the case.

    And the maths to prove it:
    In the second to last screenshot I have another weapon with a 217 power level, but it doesn't have the Gold Lethal trait that increases power by 15%. And a 15% increase on 531 is 611 (610.65 to be precise)

    Yeeha! Ignore those exclamation marks for now :smiley:
