Common / uncommon weapons - need some love

Honestly I never used any common or uncommon weapons. In my opinion their dmg should be improved to make them more attractive.
Right now it's only worth of scrapping If you don't have any common survivors 16+

    that's kinda the point.... good equip wouldn't be good if there wasn't crap equip to compare it to.
    As I witness the death of innocence... A predator feeding on its creation.

    Dmg is only one of the factors. Common weapons has 1-2 bronze traits. So only higher dmg will make them useful otherwise no point to bother.
    Of course always rare / epic or leg will win with common so why not to boost them a little?

    if you boost them even a little they will be comparable to uncommon/rares...
    I understand they are garbage... but like I said, that is kinda the point.

    I don't get your point :) lets add to game stones or dummy ammo. We will not use them either.
    I would like to see ability to choose between high dmg or better/more weapon traits.
    What you will take? Gun with 400 dmg or legendary gun 300 with interrupt, better range and higher crit dmg?
    Now you understand my POV?

    Exactly. Commons supposed to be shit. Amiga's reasoning here doesn't have much sense.

    Besides commons and uncommons are used by players more often than you think.

    Heh for me it has big sense.
    The same is in Diablo 3 for example. Common items mostly has bigger dmg, ok doesn't matter. Let's use only epic and Leg. Let's be trendy ;)

    Lvl 16 DMG 107. Now the question - why this item require lvl 16???
    But if dmg will be around 250 then maybe someone will use it. That's the point of my thread

    Basically saying the bonus on leg epic and such being traits (level up further also) so makimg base damage higher won't hurt it. But if its the right trait on it being higher damage might make a legendary obsolete. So it would unbalance stuff. The lvl difference kicks in i gues. A common vs leg means the leg eventually can be higher lvl and higher damage due to upgrades (past survivor lvl).
    So would a legendary really lose its use if common and such would get a boost?

    Enough rambling lol. Its fine as it is lol

    why not just make all weapons awesome and then anything we find will win the game....

    You are funny @Dread
    I don't use 80% of rare, epic weapon. Did I say the anything to boost them? No.

    @Amiga
    I didn't direct my smartass comment towards you or suggest you said anything about rares or epics... o.0
    So, I'm not sure I get what you mean...

    The point I keep trying to make here (which was the root of my sarcastic statement) is that the crappy items are supposed to be crappy, that is the entire meaning of their existence.
    I know they suck and aren't worth using, this was the whole point when the devs created them... to have booby prizes and something to compare the good stuff to.
    I'm just glad they let us burn them for xp rather than being completely worthless.

    This just in carp is still carp. Who keeps common and uncommon survivors? Different question, same answer. A carp by any other name would still smell like carp.

    the water is epic, the carp is holy.
    im sure it smells like crap too, but that's just a guess. xD

    I understand what @Amiga means. I would also like them to have greater damage. Otherwise give us just XP and save us scrapping.

    Or why not ad some more classes: Lumia with automatic injury to user, crap without upgrade, mundane with upgrade and no trait, holy with 3 golden traits, divine 4 traits, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious with 5 traits and free keyring.

    @Ahex
    Finally somebody understand my intention.
    Of course good traits on weapon like interrupt always win with higher dmg.
    But I would like to see more options regarding weapons that's why I created this thread
