>New Borderlands 2 weapon info surfaces

>One of the best things about Borderlands is the myriad of different weapons you come across throughout the game. Today, Game Informer teases us with some new info about the weapons in Borderlands 2.

For those of you who have played Borderlands, you may remember that the guns you picked up had a brand listed in the upper right corner of the tooltip. For Borderlands 2, those brands are actually going to mean something. Each brand is going to have its own differentiating traits: For example, the guns from the Bandits will appear haphazardly assembled with spare parts and poor craftsmanship, while guns from Hyperion will sport a clean, sleek look. In addition to different appearances, each brand’s weapons will have unique gameplay characteristics as well.
I think it’s awesome that Gearbox is looking to keep things fresh and improve upon an aspect of the game that (in my opinion) the original Borderlands already did pretty well. Now, as long as Gearbox spends more than five minutes on the game’s PC version this time around, Borderlands 2 could be a great title.
Check out the Game Informer article for a more detailed rundown of each weapon manufacturer.

    >That comment is incomprehensible. It's so easy to lose your train of thought when you can only see one line at a time. Fucking phone. Seriously though apl, your neck beard makes me all happy in the pants.

    >I have to admit, the story was not a concern for me on my first playthrough, let alone the six subsequent playthroughs. They can do whatever they want with the story because with borderlands because it's really just a way to lead you to new quests. That's not to say it has to be that way, and I could see why you would want more. It's just that I don't give a shit. That's not why the game is fun for me. Give me mad moxxie's arena and keep the story. I go hard on that shit all day… But not literally. I have to take breaks occasionally to whack to apl's neckbeard.

Brandon started his PC gaming days playing Doom II (IDDQD/IDKFA for life) and has been hooked on online gaming since the original Starsiege: Tribes. The way to his heart is through proper grammar, corn dogs, and cookie cake.
