These Are The Weapons Of Borderlands 2

The first Borderlands taught us that the planet of Pandora was very dangerous. Various weapons vendors capitalized on that danger by selling weapons. I would argue that said weapons were a little overpriced, but they sure were awesome.

The trend of weapons venders peddling tools of destruction to the citizens of Pandora continues in Borderlands 2. Gearbox Software has released a few videos during Gamescom that show off the weapons that you will be using during your fight against Handsome Jack.

First up is Maliwan, a weapons manufacturer that claims to be the paint to the art of combat. They deal in elemental weapons that burn, electrocute and poison enemies. Here’s the rundown:

Next up is Tediore, the self-proclaimed “everyman’s weapons.” The guns featured here are fast and self-reloading for those who lack thumbs. They are also apparently the best guns for those on a budget as anybody can afford them.

The final manufacturer is the Vladof Corporation. Of course, they channel the Soviet revolution and aim to arm said revolution. What revolution is there to be had on Pandora though? It’s already a desolate wasteland void of law. They might be preparing for another revolution at the hand of Claptrap.

It’s hard to believe that these are the only weapons manufacturers on Pandora, but they’ll have to do for now. The first Borderlands promised millions of gun varieties so we’ll see if these suppliers are up to the task once again.

    You sir need to do a better job of knowing your material. These are NOT the only three manufacturers on Pandora. In fact there are plenty including, Bandit, Jakobs, Hyperion, etc… These were revealed months ago. Also there is no ‘poison damage’ element. The elemental buffs for weapons are eletricity, fire, acid, and explosive, along with a fifth weapon buff called slag [a general debuffer of enemies that leaves them more susceptible to other types of elemental damage]. As a lover of the first game and an eager follower of news for the second I just dont feel its right to write an article where the author is clearly lacking depth of knowledge in the subject.
    Thanks for reading

      Hence the “It’s hard to believe” line. I was referring to Gearbox only releasing info on these vendors, and not the others. I can see why it was a little confusing and for that, I apologize. I’m eagerly anticipating the release of Borderlands 2 as well. I was a little let down by the first game, but the sequel seems to fix every complaint I had with the original.

    Not too mention there were no weapon “vendors” (not venders as shown poorly edited above) but rather vending machines that sold weapons, shields, upgrades etc.. And if you actually played through the first game you would know they were most certainly not expensive, because 98% of your endgame you were maxed on cash.
