The Weapons of Borderlands Three: A Revolving Journal
From corroding the outsized armor of the boastful Crimson Lance to shorting out deranged mechs Borderlands has all the time excelled at giving our bloodthirsty id one thing to wallow in. Now the brand new recreation is upon us, and, in the event you’re like me, you’re in all probability curious what instruments of destruction 2K has given us. So, to quell our mutual curiosity I’m embarking on a journey. A journey to uncover one of the best, most brutal weapons within the Borderlands. I’ll be updating often as I uncover extra however with out additional hesitation listed below are one of the best weapons I’ve discovered to this point. As Claptrap instructions, “Let’s reek righteous vengeance!”
After an hour of widespread trash, the magic occurs. I kill a bad-ass skag and discover my past love: the Hyperion Hostile Downsizer. This bucktastic bulldozer comes totally augmented with a bayonet, frontal protect, and most significantly, incendiary rounds. Positive, incendiary rounds are in every single place, however what makes this particular is the way it augments Moze: the gunner class. It’s doable to extend her incendiary potential each passively and after reloading – delighting my internal pyromaniac. The occasional spark evolves to fixed immolation – downsizing each enemy to ash.
Now, this gun was a shock. I by no means gave pistols a lot consideration within the prior Borderlands however now that adjustments. The little marvel packs within the quickness of an SMG with the accuracy of a revolver – permitting for near-constant essential hits. The pistol’s pugnacious precision could be sufficient to land it on this record however go away it to Gearbox to throw in an additional burst of affection. Not content material being one other Tediore flamable, this gun not solely explodes upon reloading but additionally splits into three homing missiles. Let the physique components rain!
After ending the principle mission, Cult Following, within the Holy Broadcast Heart, I’ve discovered one other deal with. Ending the facet quest Head Case (activated by grabbing the pinnacle within the jar discovered when leaving the middle) unlocks one of many recreation’s finest early weapons: Brashi’s Dedication. A gun fanatic’s dream it combines 4 totally different capturing types into two modes. The primary is an electrical mid-range rifle (suppose the M14 in Name of Obligation) whereas the second is a corrosive long-range sniper. The flexibility of with the ability to fluidly alter techniques with out altering weapons is already scrumptious, however the various elemental results make this a tactical should. I cannot be dropping it anytime quickly.
My favourite gun, to this point, graced me throughout my ultimate mission on Pandora. Each a rifle and SMG this incinerator decimates. Whether or not it’s scoping a headshot with the semi-automatic mode or eviscerating a badass up shut with totally computerized abandon, all who stand towards me face hellfire. Leaving Pandora, a completely armed soldier, I’m content material. Borderlands Three has already come by way of by giving me a number of methods to slaughter, and I’m excited to see what inventive weaponry the long run holds.
The Distinctive Gun’s We Missed
Throughout my tenure on Pandora, there was one mystical gun that eluded me. Rewarded in the course of the Dump on Dumptruck side-mission (activated by the bounty in Ellie’s storage), the beguilingly named Butt Plug is a straightforward miss. To be able to obtain the distinctive weapon, one should efficiently shoot Dumptruck’s bum. As my buddy and I sadly realized, this isn’t merely capturing him within the again. Gearbox calls for exact iniquity: it’s essential to shoot him DIRECTLY within the butt. The best approach to do that is to attend for him to shove his posterior in your face. Upon getting the all clear, go to city. Upon finishing the mission you’ll then obtain the reward: a bayonetted pistol. Appropriately, this pistol is somewhat weak at vary however devastating up shut. It does double melee injury from behind. Enterprise forth future proctologists!
