My Awesome New Borderlands 2 Gun Won’t Stop Judging Me

My Awesome New Borderlands 2 Gun Won’t Stop Judging Me

Like I mentioned yesterday, I felt like I was in a rut for a little while with my Borderlands 2 arsenal. But suddenly, upon starting the first, pirate-themed DLC, I wound up with an embarrassment of great weaponry. When it rains, it pours (bullets).

Among the guns I got was a unique Hyperion sniper rifle (not actually tied to the DLC) that does 1,000 damage (!) and is super shiny looking, to boot. But there’s a catch… every time I reload, it lambasts me in a shrill, nagging tone.

“Well at LEAST you stopped SHOOTING for a little while!”

“If you were a better shot, you wouldn’t need to reload!”

“You’re a bad person.”

You can get a sense of the gun in the above video, uploaded by YouTuber Daniel Turnbull. The best thing about this gun, called the “Auditing Morningstar” (??), is that while it’s annoying, it’s not too annoying to use. Unlike the cursed the cursed “Bane/” submachine gun, which both makes a hellacious racket when firing and restricts your movement, the Morningstar is actually a great weapon, with that one… minor… caveat.

“Oh great. Now you’re wasting ammo!”

Stop judging me, gun! You think you’re so great? God!


  • thats actually a quest reward you get from a quest in the highlands (from hyperion no less) that requires you to kill 100 bandits.

    • Haha I’m sure that was exactly when I changed from this weapon too. The buffalo’s damage was so far beyond the hyperion sniper I had to change. Of course that was back at level 30 or so. It’s also long gone

  • Least it isn’t passive-aggressive.

    “Oh wow, that was a excellent shot! I mean, considering the fact that you can’t normally aim for shit, that was great!”

  • “by not giving to charity, you are indirectly murderiing thousands of people” . Nice, now I’m a monster…

  • I love how Kirk considers finding a weapon 4 weeks after the game came out news. I’m sure the majority of players have already found several talking weapons.

    • Dude, it’s a cool weapon and a lot of people probably still haven’t seen it. I hadn’t. So why mock the guy who showed it to us? Your prior knowledge of the subject matter in an article doesn’t make the article invalid, it just makes you a dick for whining about it. Kirk’s doing his job, shut up and let him do it. Thank you, have a nice day.

  • I grabbed Moxxie’s favourite weapon yesterday and I spent all afternoon freaking out bcause it makes my controller vibrate constantly. Took me about 6 hours to realise why it was her favourite. Really can’t wait to see what else this game has in store for me.

    • The funny thing is, if you keep tipping her, she gives you better versions, sometimes saying, “This is my favourite gun.” more than once.

  • This gun also talks to you while you have it holstered and are using a different weapon, such as “you can’t ignore me”. Also headshotting with it makes it insult you. Best of the talking weapons i’ve come across.

  • “a unique Hyperion sniper rifle … that does 1,000 damage (!)”, haha, I remember when 1000 was a big number :p
