Matthew Miner's Crunching Calculators


Borderlands 1 DPS Calculator

This calculator takes information about your guns and tells you the total damage output for sustained fire in Borderlands 1 and Borderlands 1 GOTY.

Note that elemental damage typically does much more burst damage up front until you run out of "tech pool" mana. Also note that elemental damage always splashes to nearby enemies (with a larger AOE for higher elemental levels), which is not shown here.

Base reload speeds are used for each gun, but gun models may vary in reload time without telling you.

Bugs are also quite possible because these calculations are obtuse.
