Purple grade weapons are already very rare, and rarer still are the purple grade weapons outfitted with E-Tech enabled barrels. These guns project energy bolts rather than regular-old caveman-like kinetic ammunition. Depending on the gun type and the manufacturer, E-Tech barrels perform differently even if they result in guns from different brands ending up with the same name. If you’re lucky enough to happen upon these weapons, don’t part with them without some serious testing. It is not yet known how the Bandit-made brand acquired the technology to spell “Plasma Caster” correctly on their alien SMG.
