Slagging with weapons

What do you guys think the best way to land slag status (weapons only excluding grenades)
I am currently using smg with 20% chance to land 8.5 fire rate. but firein a spread sort of way I think I am going to ditch it for something more conventional.

I use a sniper with a 56.3% chance to slag. I usually just whip it out and hit the mob anywhere and it works 1st time most of the time.

I dunno if it makes a difference, but status effects seem to happen more for me when I crit the baddies. So if you can't get a slag weapon over 50%, just try for headshots.

lol well it might sound funny, but even though it should only work just over half the time, it does actually work alot more than that. I'd say it works 8-9 times out of 10. Maybe I'm just extra lucky.

That was awesome.


Anyway the best way to apply slag is normally with smgs. My current one has a 24.5% chance and a high rate of fire so it is perfect for people like Maya. Also crits have no effect on the chance to be slagged.

My brother has an SMG that does slag and shock, pretty devastating little gun. In fact it's the only dual element weapon I've seen.

there are dual element weapons in the game? news to me
I had a sniper rifle for a while with 71% slag that was pretty good for landing slag as well but rate of fire/clip size make it less useful than smg thought imo
btw anyone figure out what impacts slag effect duration or is it monster related instead of weapon.

Question: If you have a shotgun that slags an enemy, is the displayed percentage the chance that a blast will slag, or each individual pellet?

Example: A shotgun fires seven pellets with each pull of the trigger and its description says 15% chance to slag. Do I have a 15% chance to slag an enemy with each pull of the trigger, or does each of the seven pellets fired per shell have its own 15% chance of slag?

From what I've noticed, it seems to be per pellet. My fire shotgun seems to ignite people every time I hit them. Not entirely sure what the stats are on it, but I'm positive it's not even close to 50%.

Kinda figured. For some time I've been using some Bandit-made "RokSalt" shotgun that slags nearly every shot, but I wasn't sure if it was because the effect was per-pellet, or it was just good luck coupled with Maya's ability to increase elemental chance.

Ah, that must be why my sniper works better than the 56%. My badass rank gives me an extra 6%. I totally forgot about that, lol.
