Borderlands is the imminent role-playing shooter from Gearbox Software. It might not be the Citizen Kane of games, but it is – in the words of Gearbox president Randy Pitchford – totally badass. We’ve played it, several times in fact, and we dig it.
One of the more intriguing aspects of the game is its procedurally generated weapon system, which randomise a host of factors to ensure that you’ll rarely find two weapons that are the same. Gearbox claim there are more weapons in Borderlands than in every other shooter this console generation combined.
But perhaps you can come up with a weapon they haven’t got.
To be in the running to win, we want you to describe the Borderlands weapon you’d use to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Leave your weapon name and description in the comments below. Humour and creativity will be rewarded, as per usual Kotaku competition lines.
To be eligible for today’s draw, you must leave your comment by midnight tonight. You’re allowed one entry per day. If you want to enter in tomorrow’s draw, you must comment on that post with a brand new weapon idea.
And for all those who entered yesterday, Tuesday’s lucky winner is…
“Reaver” and a little thing he’s flogging off in the Fyrestone Trading Post.
The Blue Phoenix
My blue 1985 Mazda 323 hatch is the weapon of choice.
It has many features that make it the perfect post apocalyptic companion.
Able to reach speeds of close to 100km per hour*, making it a decent battering ram/person plow.
It has ample storage space for various weapons and loot that would inevitably needs to be collected in Pandoras barren hostile landscape. Or alternatively bring your friends and experience the adventure of the struggle for survival together in its 4 intact seats.
Doubles as a shelter from various dust storms/snow storms/acid rain storms/zombie hordes that one might come across.
Can run on all kinds of combustible liquids no matter how crude and unrefined.
Most importantly when it is prevented from functioning due to technical issues, a little love and care and some consultation with the owners manual will lead to its resurrection. (This has been tested on numerous occasions under many conditions, hence the name Blue Phoenix)
only $3000 (ono)
Ask for Reaver
Shed #3 Fyrestone
*(downhill slope and tail wind may be required to reach said speeds)
Honourable mentions to Dominic Harman, Doug Spann, James and jimmy.
