The first list in the OP gives all the names with the abbreviations (just the ones I used for convenience) in parentheses. The (*) indicates attacks that do weapon damage (the ones that are classed as rifle attacks); which are significant because those are the ones that proc the DOT from Plasma Cell and the secondary damage from Ion Cell.

Thank you I found most and editied my reply. I still do not know what PBAOE and KB stand for. Thank you and I hope my questions will help some others.

Sorry:

PBAOE = Point Blank Area of Effect (i.e., centered on you, not on a target)

KB = Knockback

Some of these will change dramatically if you talent them (e.g., Assault Plastique is obviously pointless unless you talent it out, since otherwise it does less damage than Sticky Grenade, but shares the same CD). At some point I will try to post the stats assuming that you take certain obvious combinations of talents (e.g., all the elemental damage buffs). Some things will switch places in priority depending on what tree you go up, and the associated cell(s) that you run.
