Hello everyone! I’m not sure how to share this idea, but I believe this forum may be the right place.
I realize that development on Borderlands 3 must be basically completed, but I had a gun idea I think people may enjoy being included in the game (or possibly added in later DLC).
I think there should be a gun called the Hippocrit! I am not sure how the name should best be spelled (Hypocrite, Hippocrite, or Hippo-crit). The special traits of this gun, as you may have guessed from the name, would be massive critical hit bonus, and of course the fact that it shoots hippopotamuses (or is it hippopotami (maybe that could be the red text)). Given the lethal nature of hippopotamuses, I think this makes a fantastic gun idea. I don’t know which type of gun this would be best as. Possibly a shotgun like the Unicornsplosion, or possibly a grenade launcher. An alternate special effect instead of a critical hit bonus could be a guaranteed (or probability based guarantee) of a critical hit, even if one missed the critical spots on an enemy.
I could be totally out of line suggesting new gun ideas this close to a game launch to the incredibly creative people at gearbox, but I thought I could at least share.
