Recommended Legendary Weapon Prefixes

Furious

Furious is an amazing prefix to have with Melee weapons as it steadily increases your damage output with every consecutive hit to your target! This is best for one-on-one fights rather than mobs unless you can single each enemy out.

Executioner's

With the Executioner's prefix, you can take care of dying enemies faster as it boosts your damage when your enemy falls below 40% health! The prefix can be good with either guns or melee weapons.

Instigating

Instigating is a powerful prefix to have with Sniper Rifles and other long-distance weapons. You can do massive damage of up to 4x if you shoot full health enemies while in stealth mode!

Vampire

The Vampire prefix provides health regeneration with every hit to a target, a good thing to have in any battle! Just make sure that your enemy can't out damage your healing or you might find yourself in hot water.

Recommended Legendary Armor Prefixes

Regenerating

Regenerating clothing will continue to heal you as long as you're not in battle! This prefix will mitigate the need for consuming health items after battle as you can just regenerate as you go on your way.

Chameleon

The Chameleon prefix is great for sneak-focused characters as it will turn you invisible when keeping still. You can take advantage of this when enemies have been alerted to your position.

Vanguard's

This prefix will make you tougher the higher your health is and can easily turn you into a tank-type player the more pieces you wear. This is even better when wearing a Power Armor.
