Guns named after forum members

Posted October 24th, 2009 at 1:40 pm

Did you know that Borderlands includes several guns named after gbx forum members?  There are seven currently found.  Very cool on Gearbox’s part to include community members in their game.  Reminds me of when FASA had contests to put beta participants as the bots names in Shadowrun (and I won one).  If you are ever on Shadowrun and play against “synide”, odds are, it’s not me  (of course unless he starts glide-sniping as a troll).  Check out the names of the guns after the jump.


– There are no guns called “Reindeer”, but the “Savage” prefix found on Revolvers was inspired by Savage Reindeer!


– One of the body part prefixes on the Rocket Launcher is called the RWL! Inspired by RWL2!
THUNDER – A title for powerful and accurate Sniper Rifles! Inspired by ThunderWank, but with 100% less wank!


– A unique Rocket Launcher earned on one of the quests in the game! Inspired by L3viathan!


– LEGENDARY ROCKET LAUNCHER from Hyperion! Inspired by NIDDHOG who once said, “Well, it couldn’t possibly be me.”


– LEGNEDARY REVOLVER from Jakobs! Inspired by Unforgiven!


– The SPECTACULAR LEGENDARY SNIPER RIFLE from Jakobs! Many here consider it the best Sniper rilfe possible! Inspired by Skullmasher!

And a special shout out to Widowmaker, who inspired a boss monster, but is not part of the Scavenger hunt! (because it ain’t a gun)
