Borderlands 3 Mentioned

Gearbox Software lead writer Anthony Burch mentioned they are already toying with ideas for Borderlands 3 on The Totally Rad Show. This is noted on MP1st, where this relieves their concern that Gearbox "will ever let the fans of Borderlands get to see a third installment of this franchise," since Borderlands 2 shipped almost a full two weeks ago. Thanks VG247.

Is DPS just damage * RoF, or is there more to it? Elemental weapons do so much damage that I'm having a hard time coming up with a reason not to use them, since I can always just switch so a similar weapon of a different element if I run up against someone who resists that one element.
No there's some kind of multiplier if you are using the right elemental weapon for the right enemy, and divisor if you're using the wrong one against something with a resist. Plus the DoT effect.

I'm going to hazard a guess and think that if a weapon rolls elemental it gets a 30-50% raw damage penalty, but using the right element offers around 100% damage bonus even before the DoT.

I think taking an elemental weapon seems a no-brainer mostly because there are not very many non-elemental high-end weapons, especially not with interesting rolls.

I do have a few though and the raw damage does even things up, certainly if other stats get the rolls I like. In fact I think 3 of my main weaps right now are non-elemental, including this utterly insane assault rifle.
