Crit Damage Sources

Disclaimer: There is almost no new info in this thread: most things in here comes from @Lootturtle and @Sljm’s work on BL2 (original work now lost to the old forum archive) Additional credit to @Kringled, @Derch, @DSs, @Exotek and myself.

Before we start, a word about the 3 different types of crit modifiers:
Type A is the most common, it’s generally what you get when you have a crit bonus.
Type B or “Jakobs type” only comes from a handful of guns, 95% of them Jakobs. Generally considered more valuable (and is often referred to as a “multiplicative” bonus.)
Type C is not a “bonus” as it’s impact is negative. Assault rifles and some E-Tech guns have it.

the Critical hit equation is as follow:

Crit Damage = Damage * 2 * (1 + .Type A) * (1 + .Type B) / (1 + .Type C)
