Really incredible as discovered by some users on Reddit. It would seem that in Anthem trying to get better weapons is completely useless, since the strongest weapon in the game is the initial weapon.

The user YeetLordSupreme he was doing some tests with several weapons and components that provide damage enhancements when he stumbled on something strange: the 1 automatic rifle, with various damage boosts, used four hits to kill a basic foe, while the 45 automatic rifle fired six times with the same boost. Yet the numbers above the enemies that reported the damage done showed very different results, 286 damage to the 1 and 1184 level rifle for the 45 level rifle. How is this possible?
