Get a grip on lasers in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

2 min read


As much as Borderlands has evolved over the years from a loot ‘n shoot extragavanza to a wacky and horribly violent adventure with great characters, it’s always been about one thing: Guns. Bazillions of them. And then some. Borderlands 2 gave the weapon formula a massive overhaul, and the Pre-Sequel is adding to that with two new types. By now, you know plenty about the cryo guns on offer. But it’s time to show some love for lasers.

Here’s the final video for The Making Of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which shows a lot of love and detail for laser guns. From my hands on, lasers are a different beast altogether, especially if you enjoy using Maliwan weapons. The lasers on those guns feel like the proton streams from Ghostbusters, and require some serious rangling to control the immense power output. Naturally, you don’t want to cross those beams anytime soon.

If you can’t watch the video above, know that it touches on the topic of DLC, which I seem to be stuck writing about today. Still, the video highlights Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragonkeep, which was an excellent piece of content in my opinion that set a benchmark in the industry. It didn’t just craft a great story, but Assault on Dragonkeep offered some truly varied gameplay that made the best possible use of the Borderlands 2 mechanics, making it feel fresh again.

And if the Pre-Sequel has DLC like that on the way, then the fans are going to be plenty pleased. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is out next week.

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!
