Glad you asked!
Gearbox released the official list of gun brands available in Borderlands 3. Previous series featured trademark brands that produce different types of guns from fast-shooting shotguns to assault rifles that fire explosions like Torgue. Heck, if you reload a Tediore, you instead chuck it as a grenade then re-digitizes a new one in your hand. Slick, eh?
In part 3, gun brands have more significant perks and bonuses in addition to their existing elemental and special properties. If you love Borderlands’ guns, you’ll love this. Here they are:
Jakobs – Ricochet Bullets
“Deliver devastating critical hits to enemies’ soft-and-sensitives, then joy-puke as your bullets ricochet towards other targets.”
Atlas – Tracker Tag Bullets
“Step 1: Hit your enemies with tracker tags. Step 2: Unleash a hail of Smart Bullets that track towards your targets. Step 3: Loot!”
Tediore – Pursuit Guns
“Toss your gun like a grenade to reload, then watch it pursue a nearby enemy as a fully loaded version digistructs in your hand.”
Hyperion – Shield and Accuracy
“Aim down the sights to take cover behind your weapon-mounted shield and keep your finger on the trigger for increased accuracy.”
Dahl – Alt Fire Modes
“Toggle between alternate fire modes depending on your play style, your predicament, and your predilection for bonus damage.”
Vladof – Underbarrel Attachments
“Augment these rapid-firing, ammo-hungry guns with under-barrel attachments including tasers, rocket tubes, and additional gun barrels.”
Torgue – Sticky Explosive Projectiles
“Switch between regular and sticky-projectile fire modes. Stickies do more damage if a bunch of them detonate on the same target.”
Maliwan – Multiple Elements
“Toggle between two elements, charge your weapon, and deal guaranteed elemental damage with your finger glued to the trigger.”
Children of the Vault – Infinite Ammo
“Enjoy uninterrupted damage-dealing courtesy of ‘infinite’ ammo magazines, occasionally interrupted by unpredictable overheating.”
Personally, I’m all for the Children of the Vault, Maliwan, Torgue, and Jakobs brands. As a Siren user, I need all the elemental and DOT gun damage for the fight ahead. If you’re as excited as I am about Borderlands 3, you can joypuke your thoughts on our website or on our Facebook page.
