Borderlands 2 has an amazing amount of guns. While some of them are “normal” weapons that just shoot bullets, others cause elemental damage, like setting your enemies on fire. However, there are guns that do more than just kill bandits, they actually talk to you. Here are three talking guns in Borderlands 2 and where to find them.
This talking shotgun starts out as a Loader in the Bloodshot Ramparts. After rescuing Roland, you can go back to this area. Once the Loader is defeated, it drops its AI core and the mission “Out of Body Experience” starts. The core wants a new body and promises not to kill you if you help it. First, the Vault Hunter can put the core into a Constructor. Of course, it immediately tries to kill you. After it’s dealt with, you can pick the core up and try a different shell, but it attacks you again. Finally, you can put it into Moxxie’s radio, where it tries to kill everyone in the bar by singing horribly.
To get the shotgun, you must turn the mission in to Marcus, as giving the core to Zed makes it a shield. When fired, the gun says phrases like ” KILL KILL KILL” and “Bang!” It also asks why you’ve stopped shooting when you reload. For every action the gun can do, it makes a comment.
The sniper rifle with a shrill, condescending voice can be found by completing the “Hyperion Contract 873″ side mission in the Highlands. The mission itself is simple, all you have to do is kill 100 bandits. There is also the option to use elemental damage on the bandits, but it’s not necessary. The Morningstar wastes no time insulting you the minute it’s fired. Even if you’re killing Psychos or Nomads it will chime in and say things like ” Someone is an orphan now and doesn’t know it yet.” When you’re reloading it often complains about how some children can’t even afford ammo.
The Bane is the most infamous talking gun in Borderlands 2. Ever since the game was released, videos of this annoying gun have surfaced online. In order to get the Bane, you need to start a side quest by the same name in Sanctuary. After following the clues, the Vault Hunter must go to the Lynchwood cemetery and dig up it from a grave. The “cursed” gun definitely fits its name. Not only does it scream gibberish that’s called “annoying sound” in the game, it also yells “Swappin’ weapons!” and “RATATAT!” However, the most cursed thing about this weapon is that when you equip it your movement is severely slowed down.
While there are plenty of guns in Borderlands 2, these three are the only ones I’ve found that talk to players. Even though some of the dialogue can be distracting, they are all extremely amusing and worth acquiring. Hopefully, more talkative weapons will be released for the game with upcoming DLC.
