Legendary vs. Epic / Epic vs. Rare



Can anyone tell me why my survivors damage goes down when he is equipped with the legendary weapon vs. the epic. Both weapons are at the same lvl and I do realize that for some reason, the added damage from the Deadly trait (skull) doesn't show up on the weapon itself. It only calculates after u equip your survivor. So in these pics you can see his personal damage goes down when he is equipped with the legendary weapon. I thought it might be because of his traits, but this happens on all four of my assaults. This has happened one other time with Epic vs. Rare, both at same lvl.
I guess what I'm really wondering is legendary/epic, epic/rare really such a big deal or am I missing the big picture here? Thanks for anybody's help on this one.
I'm not talking about his armor, only his weapon.

    The base damage of your survivor is 308.
    The damage of the legendary weapon is 383.
    The damage of the epic with deadly is 386.
    If you do the math (addition Survivor + weapon) the damage is higher with the epic.
    Always take a look at the traits of your equipment. These traits determine if a weapon is great or crap.
    Hope this helps. :)

    And since your survivor has marksman 12%. The clean damage of your survivor is actually 308/1.12=275

    You guys have taught me so much. I knew there was away to calculate the traits in, but I just didn't understand how they were doing it. Now I'm going to kick some zombie butt!!!

    If you add the deadly trait to the damage of the weapon, you are at 386.
    This is more than the 383 of the legendary weapon.
    That's it.

    I'm Not talking about the damage on the weapon itself, I'm talking about the damage the survivor deals out once he is Equipped with the weapon. The number above the weapon that has nothing to do with the weapon, it only has to do with the survivor once he is equipped with it.

    Damage 691 when strapped with the legendary vs. 694 when strapped with the epic.

    I thought that legendary equipment was suppose to be better than epic????

    Although the weapon shows 351, it actually is 386.
    Your survivor does 691-386= 308 damage

    308+383 = 691 legendary
    308+351*110%= 694 epic

    Why is the epic doing more damage?

    .

    Lethal is calculated only on the end-survivor damage, not on the damage shown on weapon.
