I don't know why, but I just had a slew of great borderlands gun ideas.
The Backup Plan (with the help of I Can Haz Lagg):
Appearance: sawn-off double barrel Jakobs shotgun, blood on the front of the gun.
Characteristics: extremely high damage, low accuracy, fast reload speed, consumes 2 shots per trigger pull, and fires two slugs as opposed to a slew of pellets, non elemental
Flavor Text: When plan A goes wrong...
Appearance: Gold plated Dahl pistol with the Jakobs barrel, never spawns with scope
Characteristics: high accuracy, relatively low base damage, very high critical damage, fires all of the 16 bullets in its mag when zoomed in at a very high rate of fire (around 100.0), but if not scoped in it has a very low rate of fire around 1.0, non-elemental
Flavor Text: Get on your knees.
The Iron Curtain:
Appearance: Vladof minigun with that has iron rivets between panels, has a prominent hammer and sickle on the magazine (The Iron prefix is if the gun is non-elemental, it is called The Caustic Curtain if caustic, The Flaming Curtain if incendiary, and The Slagged Curtain if Slag)
Characteristics: Very high fire rate, upper middle damage, fires like a shotgun with 5 projectiles each shot, albeit with less than 65% accuracy, has a 15% chance to cause middle range elemental damage, never spawns with a scope
Flavor Text: Stalin's wet dream
