How to draw the mighty Excalibastard from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Excalibastard

Throughout history, there have been many legendary weapons. The six-shooters of Wyatt Earp. The mighty Excalibur of King Arthur. The hammer of Thor, Mjolnir. My poor attempts at cooking. But behold, the latest instrument of death to join the ranks of these legendary weapons! Behold, the Excalibastard!

First up, here’s where you can find the gun in the game. Head outside, go to Triton Flats and head towards Stanton’s Liver. Once you you’re there, head for the bridge but take a left turn before crossing it. Moon-hop across the cliffs, and you’ll find the proverbial gun-sword in the stone, waiting to test your mettle. Here’s what it looks like:

Excalibastard

Look at that. A shiny legendary gun, just waiting to be pulled out and used to spread bullets everywhere on Elpis. The catch however, is that you need to be badass enough to pull it. Plenty badass. Or have a rank that is around 2500 in badassitude, in order to draw the Excalibastard.

The best way of course to gain badass points to increase your rank, is to tackle various challenges in the game, or to treat a woman with respect. Remember, nothing is more badass than that according to Mr Torgue. Rank up, and you’ll soon be able to pull the gun, which will be tied to your character level. Still, here’s what it looks like at level 30:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Admiral Chief 0

    MJOLNIR FTW!!!

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Oh my sweet balls!!!

    • Admiral Chief 0

      SWEET BANANA BALLS sounds like a koeksister recipe

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Impressive, but is it SMG or pistol or rifle?

    Seems like Rifle/pistol becoz of small mag size

    • D

      It’s a laser, the icon in the bottom right shows the weapon class.

      • Admiral Chief 0

        FRIKKIN LAZOR

  • Hammersteyn

    It’s little things like these that makes Borderlands fun

  • I am actually tempted to just get this for my Xbox 360, I can’t wait for a PS4, need more Borderlands!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      No need to wait, it’s not on the PS4.

    • honest man

      funny enough, mr torgue does not approve :/

  • Spaffy

    “firing increases accuracy”
    I usually just skip those guns.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Me too – Hyperion weapons :/

      • Spaffy

        And pointless as Zer0 with a sniper rifle

        • Ricardo Beniquez

          Except for the shotguns. Hyperion shotguns are some of the best in the game. You can just hip fire. Remember the Conference Call?

          • Spaffy

            Could take out EVERYONE in B0re

    • Weanerdog

      That is why I use assault rifles in all my games. Because I can’t hit anything I may as well hit everything.

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        And here I am using a smg for the same purpose.

        • Ceyber, Hans

          I found a shotgun with 30+ mag and explosive ammo. Carbon-fiber camo with red accents.

          Used it throughout first playthough.

          • Weanerdog

            Find shotgun with massive damage but rubbish accuracy equips anyway. Finds myself in confined space, uses shotgun. Kills everything including myself. Reads description fine print “shoots rockets”.

          • Ceyber, Hans

            Hahaha!

            I did that so many times with overpowered grenade mods. Good times.

        • Weanerdog

          In my best Mexican accent: “You want to die with a man’s gun, not a little sissy gun like that.”

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I usually do as well, bullet hoses are my normal go-to weapons but in Warframe I find the weapons that require you to be more accurate tend to be the most useful.

        • Kensei Seraph – Staff

          It’s the ammo restrictions.
          Firing off 1 clip of the Gorgon might get you more kills than with the Latron, but you are definitely going to be switching to your secondary much sooner.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I tried using the Gorgon a bit, didn’t like it. At least with my Latron I can double tap almost anything. I’m more partial to my Dread – mostly because it crits like a mofo & punch through rocks my world.

        • Weanerdog

          My biggest gripe with warframe is that I like to proceed slowly, cautiously it is how I play. Teammates disappear into distance.

      • Jennie

        Thats why you use a shotgun! They always have a good spead.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      Same here

    • I quite like Hyperion weapons for more nimble foes. Actually helps fill them with lead easier. But that’s just me.

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        I find using them is a waste of ammo since it takes half the clip to reach the accuracy of other guns and by then you’re lucky if you landed 3 hits of the 15 you just fired.

        • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

          And with the harder later playthroughs, wasting ammo is a big “please don’t kill me, please don’t kill me, please don’t kill me” moment waiting to happen.

        • Not unless you’re playing as a Mechromancer, yo. Anarchy stacks fo lyfe!

          • Kensei Seraph – Staff

            It’s pretty surprising how accurate a sniper rifle is with max Anarchy stacks.
            You only miss by about 1 meter at any range.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            N00B!

        • Norm (@e3zype3zy)

          I’m a fan of Dahl hardware. 🙂

      • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

        This is why Mr. Torque recommends EXPLOSIONS!!!!!!!!!

  • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

    So the last few pre-orders I’ve collected have REALLY let me down. The last good title I actually enjoyed at release WAS Borderlands 2. So I’m hoping this continues the trend of awesome gameplay, because if this tanks I’m officially going to cry myself to sleep and only play Tetris until the end of days.

    • Spaffy

      Tetris? Well at least you know what you’re getting

      • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

        Those blocks don’t lie. They’re a little less shapely than Shakira’s thighs, but the core principal is the same. 😛

  • Ceyber, Hans

    Glad to see Roland again. Wonder if we’ll see Tina’s parents?

    Oh wait… DLC.

    • Kensei Seraph – Staff

      Are you implying that we will get to see what turns Krieg crazy?
      That is actually a DLC I would pay money for.

      • Ceyber, Hans

        That’s what I’d do if I was them.

        Origin stories FTW

  • Brian Hull

    and if it falls and gets stuck in that little rock when it lands you’re fucked and won’t be able to loot it. CLICKING the item triggers a permanent lockout on your character for life LOL, instead of actually looting the thing. thanks to shitty code i’ll never have this gun.
