New Shift Code Weapon Idea

Well, as it will most likely be a good while till the release of BO3. I am wondering if Gearbox has the capability of making new weapons for the Pre Sequel, that they could make a Shotgun that shoots lasers. Kind of like the Ol’ Painful but a shotgun. I think a Jakob type or a Hyperion would be a good idea. Now of course this is just an idea, but with the lack of Uniques in TPS, I think this would be very cool. Thoughts?
