So, I found a Blue Rarity Tediore Shotgun that becomes a Turret when you throw it on Reload.
A fairly effective Turret.
I love it!
Also, Dahl sniper rifles make amazing shotguns, and CoV Gatling rifles make me cackle maniacally.
I’m realizing, as quickly became the case with every other Borderlands title, it’s not really the story, the characters, or even said characters abilities I care about…it’s the GUNS, people! THE GUNS!
