Dear Gearbox Forum
I have a question that I think a casual fan would ask: If you were able to name a gun and red text, what would it be?
My answers (this can also be used as an example)
- Name: Peridot
Red Text: “Smack those clods where it hurts”
Hyperion SMG with +75 critical hit damage, +50 damage and a magazine that holds 125 SMG rounds, lime green body, and a pale chartreuse yellow gun shield that deflects bullets not only right back to the enemy but right to their critical hit area.
Fact: The gun is named after the Crystal Gem Peridot from Steven Universe (https://steven-universe.fandom.com/wiki/Peridot)
- Name: Garnet
Red Text: “Firey Ruby + Icey Sapphire = Electrifying Garnet”
Maliwan SMG with incersed damage, elemental damage, guarantee elemental effect and is more accurate as it’s fired also it comes in three elements instead of the standard two; fire, shock and cryo, and changes color depending on the element red for fire and blue for cryo
Fact: The Garnet Maliwan SMG is named after the leader of the Crystal Gems of the same name from Steven Universe (https://steven-universe.fandom.com/wiki/Garnet) the red text also references the gems that fused to make Garnet Ruby and Sapphire (https://steven-universe.fandom.com/wiki/Ruby) (https://steven-universe.fandom.com/wiki/Sapphire)
- Name: Cold Electric Lapis
Red Text: “1.50 gigawatts of electric death and -150 Fahrenheit of cryo-cooling”
Maliwan shotgun with incrested damage (rivaling that of epic rarity Jakobs shotguns) increased shock damage and shock chance and increased cryo efficacy has a cyan body with cobalt blue decals
Fact: The Cold Electric Lapis is named and designed after Lapis Lazuli (https://steven-universe.fandom.com/wiki/Lapis_Lazuli)
- Name: El Levin
Red Text: “He rises”

Fact: The name is both a pun to “Eleven” and references Kevin Levin from the Ben 10 series (https://ben10.fandom.com/wiki/Kevin_Levin) the red text is also a reference to the Levithan
- The Tennyson
Red Text: “It’s hero time.”
Hyperion Shotgun that can switch between every element, (normal, fire, shock, corrosive, cryo and radiation) the shotgun also sports the same coloring as the Omnitrix. (https://ben10.fandom.com/wiki/Ben_Tennyson_(Classic))

- One Hit
