A Return To Pandora, Part 2: Weaponry

Choose your instrument. By terabyte (rook777) on pixiv.

87 bazillion guns. Is that even a proper unit of measurement? (No it’s not.) Other post title choices would’ve been “A fantastic day for capitalism” (Which is Ironic because Vladof guns have a distinctively Communist Revolution flavor to it) and “Remember, if it took more than one shot, you weren’t using a Jakobs!” (Which I can attest to, my play through 1 end-game weapon was exclusively an unscoped Jacobs sniper rifle).

As anyone who have played the game, both the first and the newest one, Borderlands’ big selling point is the diversity of ways to send your enemy to the hereafter. The claim of the 87 bazillion guns isn’t unfounded when there are at least 6 or 7 different weapons manufactures, each developing at least all or some of each type of weapon featured (pistols, sub-machine guns, shotguns, assault rifle, sniper rifle, rocket launcher) and there is a few ‘named’ guns each with its oqn unique properties. Depending on the part developed randomly, it can effect a myriad of different things from magazine size, accuracy, firing mode, etc etc.

Already at the time of this writing, my once reliable guns are now nothing but fond memories and relics. I have already found a scoped Jakobs gun to replace the one I have dubbed the “K98k” due to resembling the one I’ve used with the 1st MRB on Day of Defeat:Source, have gotten a pretty good revolver, and got a nice Jakobs rifle.

Now, there really isn’t much to say beyond the fact there is literally a ton of weapons that a person can get on Borderlands 2, and I’ve yet to hear of two people getting the exact same weapon. Even the named weapons are randomly generated to have different variables, so I doubt it’s possible to do it then. So a word of advice.


If it took more than one shot, you weren’t using a Jakobs!

Or lul, choose a gun that fits your style of play I guess. Keep the ones that aren’t crap, sell the ones that are, and don’t neglect the weapon vendors. I found several good weapons through em.
