Borderlands 2 Gunzerker Class Detailed
In Borderlands if you remember, there were 4 different character classes with each having a unique set of skills. All these characters are expected to make an appearance in Borderlands 2 but they won’t be included as playable characters since there will be new classes to choose from.
Gearbox has revealed one of the playable character classes named “Gunzerker”. Salvador (Gunzerker) will have the ability to wield 2 guns at a time and both the guns can be fired independently with left and right triggers.
Sounds great to me; That little dwarf can play the role of a terminator firing an SMG in one hand while an assault rifle in other or may be a shotgun or a sniper rifle, there are plenty of weapons to choose from.
The skill tree of this class can be divided into three paths – Wrath, Brawn and Gun Lust. Wrath line will improve the dual-wielding abilities of your character. Brawn will improve the physical strength while Gun Lust will polish the weapon stats.
Other bonus skills include – “Divergent Likeness”, “Down , Not Out” and Overheat. With overheat ability, the rate of fire of the gun carried will keep on increasing irrespective of the nature of the gun. Through Divergent Likeness, dual wielding different weapons will increase the accuracy. Down, Not Out bonus will allow you to dual-wield even at the brink of death (which wasn’t be possible in Borderlands).
Looking at the skills of Salvador, I am itching to know about rest of the classes. For now, the dual-wielding dwarf has become my favorite character among any other playable characters in Borderlands 2. Do you like him or what?
