does anyone have one stronger than 1371 damage? - Distant719

Show me an itemcard of 171, I'm guessing it's modded with Savage. Which would explain why User:Xyl is adding this damage figure to the table. --Nagamarky 03:59, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
frynote: image has been removed or moved to the variant table.

The 1319-damage Aries is body5 mag5 barrel4 level 61, and you can't get any higher damage unless you mod the prefixes. Savage bumps it to 1371, so that's probably where you got it from. Unfortunately, Pearl is the only legitimate prefix for the Aries. --Nagamarky 09:50, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


I removed the following sentence from the main page because it's wrong: "The Reference may also refer to the popular God of War franchises' Aries, the ancient Greek personification of war, as he takes Kratos as his servant for eternity." The Greek god of war is "Ares" not "Aries." See [[1]].

Can an Aires exist with x3 shock? Also, is the x3 damage Aires hacked? Sherio X9 03:38, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yes it can. So far i have seen only x2 and x3 Aries, and i dont know if x4 exists.
its about time we got a legendary shock weapon other than orion or did i miss something?   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  15:57, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Ya missed something cuz i think there is a rocketlauncher called the "rhino" that can deal shock damage am i right? (sarcastic but no offence) No signature found... 15:14, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

rhino is not a shock weapon. the special part is erupting rockets. anybody else? i thought sure there was another shock weapon. (no offense taken)  Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  09:05, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
There is certainly a X4 shock weapon Rhino.-IDJV
RPG770 C Cobalt Rhino
as i stated above, the rhino is not a shock weapon. it can have any element other than explosive for an accessory.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  09:37, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
Yep, the Rhino is a legendary Maliwan weapon that has a powerful elemental attack and can have all 3 elements (Fire, Shock, Corrosive)174.134.128.19 19:44, July 19, 2011 (UTC)McRedidyred
Krom's Sidearm and the Tsunami? Those are the only other unique weapons I remember that uses shock, other than the Orion of course. --Nagamarky 11:58, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

i believe you yourself pointed out that krom's sidearm (which is a revolver in the cut scene) uses garden variety shock accessory. so orion is sole citizen of shockville pre dlc3? hmm.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  19:21, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

fulgurating aries

I found a fulgurating aries with over 1k damage, but no crazy skills so it seems normal. can someone please tell me if its modded? thanks Colonel198 03:22, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

I would think so. All Aries revolvers have the Pearl prefix. --Nagamarky 03:45, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

I went to return it as defective (like you said) and he trucked me off the cliff. Tom 05:51, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

MAL10 Pearl Aries


I've seen a lot of people with Aries but I never really came across anyone who had a "MAL" version, always "AX" so I post mine. Kuzco The General 15:41, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

x1 shock.

Ok. This sounds unlikely to you all I guess, but UberOrb gave me a level 55 one.

It only has x1 shock. Is this even possible?   GnarlyToaster -Talk-   02:04, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Yes.  nagy   talkScorpio-fulllog     06:57, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Should I change it on the page?   GnarlyToaster -Talk-   09:27, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

i wouldnt say should, but you may of course. - Chemicalweapon Dr. F


Hey Gnarly, I can assure you that aries is legit - got it of a Bad@ss Defender in the Circle of Duty on solo.

All of my guns are legit, Even if they don't seem like it. I'll get you a level 60 Aries when you get level up too.   Uberorb Bio melt  

I'm trying to kill Crawmy myself for now to get new stuff. The level 55 works wonders on pretty much anything.   GnarlyToaster -Talk-   16:56, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Does anyone know where I can get a copy/item card from the lvl 49 AX300 Pearl Aires?

  • Damage 1253
  • Accuracy 96.4
  • Fire Rate 2.0

I prefer the long barrel revolvers, for some reaon they make my hunter look badass... X4 LOL XD I just prefer long barrel revolvers for some strange reason o.0 Kinda feels like I have O.C.D with my weapons..

  • I am sorry if I offended anyone that has O.C.D. but there was no other possible way to explain it at the moment...

Trivia: Aries and Ares

Moved this from the main page:

Aries is also a spelling adaption of Ares[1]

The reference referred to the Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ares - I'll be perfectly happy to put it back if anyone can prove that this reference actually contains the name Aries at all. Wannas 21:19, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

KLR300 Pearl Aries

my first aries found this gun off craw

Two Aries in consecutive Crawmerax solo runs

So I run Craw with my Siren pretty easy... glitch or no glitch. My first ever pearlescent was a Aries x1 (so crappy I sold it right away...). Today it dropped 2 of them, and there's no need of guessing which one I'll be running with ;)


I see there's no pics with a x4 Aries. Anyone find one of these yet?T0yz 16:34, December 3, 2010 (UTC)


I dont think so. Seems the page was updated a while ago... I remembering the multiplier on the description card was only x2 - x3, but now it has x1 (what is possible) - x4. I really wish that x4 aries exists. Maybe that there is only one combination of parts, that increases the multiplier to x4 but the rest is then very crappy?! Something like 2 Shots, bad barrel, bad body, bad material parts. Dunno why, but some lower parts have higher tech level. Same on the Nemesis. I have a very strong one which appears as "Lightning". Also i have a lower one but it has the "Fulgurating"-Prefix. ADreamer 11:13, December 20, 2010 (UTC)


There is a x4 Aries, but only with the MAL#30 setup with all part3, stock doesn't matter. The parts which increase tech level, the part3 sets, are not as damaging or well-rounded as the part4 for damage or the part5 for overall performance. The higher tech weapons will have lower damage and perhaps other stats as reflected on the item card, but will deal higher elemental damage and proc like a champ. Whereas the usual weapons have to rely more on dealing brute-forced damage instead of waiting for tech pool regeneration.  nagy   talkScorpio-fulllog     15:22, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

Agree... Just tried what you said. Well, i post this pictures for all deniers (especially me ^^). It is a created one, so don't count it only see that it is theoretically possible that such a gun would spawn. You know your meat Nagy ^^ Just some addition... Body 3 is totally necessary as much as Magazine 3. But the barrel can be 3 OR 4. This one has body 3, barrel 4, sight 3, stock 2 and magazine 3. I think a combination of this would be very rare to get dropped but keep looking guys. The possibility exists ;) ADreamer 10:04, December 21, 2010 (UTC)


So am I to understand that either we get x1-x3 Aries with good stats, or a below average Aries with x4? Is that the highest stats possible for a x4? Would we be able to get 6 or 2 shot variants? Click for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 17:25, January 24, 2011 (UTC)


frynote: image has been removed or moved to the variant table.

3-shot variants only, but stats are actually quite decent, considering it will proc more.  nagy   talkScorpio-fulllog     21:54, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

Secondhand Lions

Heyoo, so i'm watching the movie Secondhand Lions, Uncle Garth tells a story about Uncle Hub and his adventures in Africa throughout the movie. Anyways here's a quote from the movie, may be a reference for the Flavor text. eh?

Quoted text.
— Garth: The Sheik *knew* that he would sure die now, without even the right to beg for mercy... But Hub just said "Twice I have held your life in my hands. And twice I have given it back to you. The next time..." Young Hub: Your life is mine!

RazmRazpRazh 03:47, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Could be...but lately the references have become much much more far fetched, it seems as if we are throwing everything that remotely connects to the game into the trivia sectionClick for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 03:59, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
which is why i added it here instead. :P RazmRazpRazh 04:00, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

I can't really see any other connections with the movie, do they mention Aries or Ares anywhere?--Click for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 04:06, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

unfortunately, no. other than a fair warning that if he tried to take his girl again, he'd take his life. RazmRazpRazh 04:19, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Ares is the god of war...I can see this threat as being a declaration of war...--Click for inventory! Prinny Riceygringo 04:26, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

People have been raping the Aries' trivia section since the gun's article was created. This is the bottom line. The flavor text is a reference to the God of War series. The name "Aries" is often confused with "Ares", the god of war, who is involved with the flavor text. HOWEVER, "Aries" refers to the bearer of the golden fleece, a ram. Personally, the flavor text coupled with the name of the gun makes a pretty concrete case for the trivia section to be a giant god of war reference, with "Aries" being listed as a misnomer, considering that the flavor text makes zero reference to a golden fleece, or a stupid ram. But alas, Dr. F doesn't agree with me on that. So it remains the jumbled up pile of loose-references that it is now. Nohai 16:07, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

That must be why the weapon's page is locked. I see. Daemmerung 16:59, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

the trivia section is _the_ most edited part of the wiki w/o protection. the two references now posted are representative of all previous edits even the though they portray gearbox as booger-eating-morons who dont know the difference between aries the ram and area the god of war. the secondhand lions note, though vaporous at best, is the only other suggestion other than trolling i have seen. suggested additions to the page may be made here. ty for your time. go on about your business. nothing to see here folks. these are not the droids you are looking for.  The Evil Dr. F (Talk)15,358 Edits

Even smart people make misteaks while copy editing others' work. And one a change -- even a mistaken change -- makes it far enough down the product channel, it becomes difficult to undo without pimping test, doc, support. I don't have a ram in this fight, but I think you're both right. It's intentionally "Aries," because Atlas names its legendaries after creatures and monsters, not gods. The flavor text is a pun on Aries/Ares. Dread sheep of war! Daemmerung 18:21, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

I will speak up as the person who originally added the God of War reference way back in the days of lore and Treejs. this is my final hypothesis. The Aries revolver was intended to be named the "Ares." Why? Ares is a Greek god. Almost all of Atlas' weapons are named after figures of Greek mythology. "Aries" is a constellation. This would have fit better with S+S, for reasons that I should not have to explain. Therefore, between the flavor text, and what I consider to be a typo/misnomer, I stand by the reference. And if any of you try to change it, I will become an F-18, even during naps, and drop ordinance from on high with my flaming fists, powered by tiger blood and adonis DNA. I mean it. I'm a Vatican assassin warlock. I work for the pope. New sig 18:31, March 4, 2011 (UTC) Charlie Sheen for president... Nohai 17:10, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

This hurts me to say, but you're all wrong. It's a reference to the fourteenth level of Super Foobar Monkey Fighter IV, where there's a bar called Airy's that you can reach by ducking under the mushroom, then grenade-jumping on top of the giant pink panties. Just because Gaerbox can't spell Aerie's doesn't mean that Im not right!! Daemmerung 18:44, March 4, 2011 (UTC) or more likely his evil Jiminy Gemini


Since I got this started with a _new_ idea of what it _could_ but not necessarily mean. All three of you have said roughly the same thing worded differently.we get it. or really, I get it. My original intention was not to stir up a bunch of stuff by posting it. My thinking was, hey I recognize the quote and thought I would share it.that's about it. I never wanted it to be put on the article because the movie had nothing to do with Greek Mythology or Borderlands itself. </rant> RazmRazpRazh 19:07, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

Now you went and did it. You made her mad. Hell Hath no Fury, gentelman :P. --Veggienatersml 18:08, March 5, 2011 (UTC)


Not trying to start a fight Razl but you did say...
...may be a reference for the Flavor text. eh?
— Razldazlchick, 03:47 February 27, 2011

Nohai 17:10, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

yeah.. hence. "may" be a reference, i did not say that it "is" be a reference. RazmRazpRazh 23:34, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

People who put the words, "may", "be", and "reference" together in a sentence are normally ground up and used to feed the Terrible Pandoran Rage Piranhas of the Hellrip Gulf. -- WarBlade 04:59, March 8, 2011 (UTC)
sorry for the confusion. RazmRazpRazh 05:22, March 8, 2011 (UTC) lets go for another dip, shall we?

This page...

Needs to be opened up to happy so he can do his work. I think it's an ok time to open up the page for general edits as well, just maybe not to UCs. Or keep the trivia section off limits. Nohai 20:00, March 11, 2011 (UTC)

Aries level

I'm wondering why there is a level 69 aries(the level 4 shock one) but yet on the pearlescent page it says they can only get to level 68. Is the pearlescent page wrong or is the level 69 aries modded. The only way pearlesents could only be 68, is if crawmerax, crimson chests, badass enemys, drifters, and skyscaper only drop level 68 loot otherwise there is a chance they can drop level 69 pearlescents.- Omega General

All Pearlescent items (weapons and shields) can only go up to level 68. All level 69 ones are modded. Here's a list of what enemies drop what: linky. None of those can drop level 69 items. Logisim 21:46, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
Im sure Iv seen a legit level 69 one. Could it have changed with the new(est) level cap? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.19.97.43 (talkcontribs)

thank you, jebn. i was actually looking for an un-equipped image of said weapon. the existing pic shows an extremely high damage aries pegged at level 55, which some readers may find... disheartening... as the other (actual) level 55 aries' are half or less your example's damage. still, nice find. i, too, am partial to long-barreled revolvers sans scopes. i agree with envy in that they make my hunter look "badass."
