What would you name a gun and red text?

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)

  1. Name: Peridot
    Red Text: “Smack those clods where it hurts”
    Hyperion SMG with +60 critical hit damage and +30 damage, 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)
  2. Name: Garnet
    Red Text: “Firey Ruby + Icey Sapphire”
    Maliwan SMG that uses both cryo and fire, 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)
  3. 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)
  4. Name: El Levin
    Red Text: “He rises”
    A Vladof Assault Rifle that has a magazine size of 250 rounds and a grenade launcher that holds 32 capacity, the grenade launcher is also fully automatic (like a Mark 19), the gun also sports a green paint job with two black stripes across the gun in a horizontal line, also the gun can come in all elements
    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
  5. 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))
    Fact: The Tennyson is named after the Ben Tennyson and his family the Tennyson from Ben 10 the red text is also Ben Tennyson’s catchphrase
  6. Van Rook
    Red Text: “Why don’t you shoot some Cryptids”
    Jakobs Sniper Rifle with +800 critical hit bonus and +400 added regular damage at the cost of a magazine size of three and crits can hit up to six enemies with no damage reduction
    Fact: The Van Rook is named after the same character from The Secret Saturdays, it’s red text references the Whitting’s Elephant Gun, the massive critical hit bonus is mirrored from both the Silent Night sniper rifle and the Unforgiven, and the ability to hit six enemies with no damage reduction is a reference to Dirty Harry.

I’d name a gun after my other favourite dystopian comedy, Death Race 2000.

It would be an SMG called Machine Gun Joe. Red text: “One very large baked potato.”

Atomic Breath - Flavor Text: “Oh no, there goes Tokyo…”
Maliwan Radiation
As well as the ~30-35% elemental effect chance, has an unlisted 15-25% (based on level/variant) chance to ignite enemies causing incendiary DoT
Reference to Godzilla’s atomic fire breath w/ flavor text being a line from Blue Öyster Cult’s hit song “Godzilla”

I can’t decide if this would be better as a laser weapon or rocket launcher, feel free to opine.
