Borderlands 2 – Get To Know The Gunzerker

We’re continuing to learn more about Borderlands 2, and in continuing the learning spree we get to learn about the game’s maniacal trigger man – the Gunzerker. Gearbox’s Anthony Burch helps explain just who the Gunzerker is, and what he will bring to the game.

On the surface, the Gunzerker is a crazy ole’ coot that runs around temporarily dual-wielding guns to waste any enemy who crosses his path. This is his primary skill, and around this skill are trees that will add modifications to how the skill works. Though this is a great implementation of something new, how does it stack when it comes to creating damage when dual-wielding?

Burch describes it as such: “I can combine a shock machine gun and a fire shotgun and charge with my machine gun firing to drop shields and then light them on fire with the shotgun at close range and melt their face.” Though it’s simple, I’m digging this description.

The Gunzerker will have three skill trees, each of which will have their own unique talents. These will be the Rampage, Brawn, and Gun Lust skill trees, allowing players to try and tank through waves of enemies, or come up with new and interesting ways to deal with enemy removal. You can find out more details about the Gunzerker over at IGN, and it’ll be worth it. Borderlands 2 is set to release in 2012, and we’re anxiously awaiting more about it.
