I am about this close....!!...from purchasing the Warrior and before I shell out $600.00 plus, my question would be....I have watched many videos and it seems to me that with the Gain and Sen set to max, a person would be getting all that this detector can give as far as depth goes...What would be the purpose of setting the Gain and Sen to a different setting knowing the detector will pass over a target and not respond to it...

Keith Southern is going to be the resident expert to answer that question, he's been playing around with the Warrior.
He doesn't visit here often, usually found on the Notka forum

As you know the sensitivity is basically the size of the "receive antenna " of the returning signal. As the sensitivity increases, EMI will now start to being received by that "antenna". That is controlled by turning back the sens. or moving to another area to hunt. The Gain , according to my understanding, is that it doesn't enhance the returning signal but amplifies the audio of the target after that audio has been produced by the detector's circuitry. There may be a potentially audible target buried in the audio output and by enhancing with the gain, you can now hear it. There will be times when you can run the detector wide-open in both Gain and Sensitivity but in some areas that may not be practical because of EMI, mineralization or overloading. The Gain will enhance the target regardless of where Sensitivity is set.. but that doesn't necessarily mean you can always crank the Gain wide open either because it will start boosting the EMI hidden in the audio.
My mind don't work right anymore, hopefully you can appreciate what I am saying.
Too, Rosi if you want to add and / or correct me, I welcome that, too. Ya never get too old to learn... Richard Backwoods

Although the gain can enhance the strength of the target response, it can also be turned down when in high iron or trash areas so that the machine is not overwhelmed by the overload of signals. Although you will lose some depth. You will get a much cleaner response to good targets that are shallower in these situations. Sometimes less power is preferred over the brute strength of the machine for sheer depth alone...Stuart

This is very true because in heavy iron, the depth of the target is not the problem, it is the masking.
