Borderlands 2: Meet the Gunzerker
By Karl D - Wed Aug 17, 11:00 am
Gearbox Software has released fresh new details on the unnamed character from the Borderlands 2 teaser.
The newest class is the Gunzerker by the name of Salvadore, a tough brute reminiscent of Brick the Beserker from the original game. Whereas Brick liked to go into a melee frenzy for his special attack, Salvador likes to go in the opposite direction, going with a dual wielding offensive for a limited time. He can dual wield any of the games thousands of weapons, meaning he can simultaneously fire two rocket launchers or shoot from a pistol and assault rifle at the same time.
Here are a few of the abilities to unlock on the skill tree:
Divergent Likeness – If you’re dual wielding weapons of the same type, your attack power goes up. If you dual wielding different types of weapons, your accuracy goes up.
Down, Not Out – When Salvador is downed, he has the ability to dual wield until he either dies or is revived by a team member.
Overheat – No matter which gun you’re using, the rate of fire will continue to increase as long as you hold the trigger
