In Borderlands 1 I had a great pistol which only had a 2-shot clip but reloaded almost instantly and it also regenerated ammunition over time, fast enough that it basically had infinite ammo. I haven’t found a gun in BL2 that has this ability, are there any? I’m playing as Commando and I’ve noticed Gunzerker class mods that seem to grant this ability, but I was hoping there are weapons that do it too. The need to stop questing and go searching through containers for ammo or find an ammo vending machine is a little annoying.
Weapons that REGENERATE ammo
Note, the following two weapons require a purchase of the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade pack
Counterbution revengence. The reckoning. – High overall stats. Behaves like a bouncing betty grenade when reloaded. Regenerates SMG
ammo when wielded.
Fresh Meat! – Very low pellet count. Greatly increased fire rate. Achieves maximum accuracy much more quickly than other Hyperion
shotguns. Magazine randomly refills a random amount of ammo as it’s
fired, giving it a wildly variable magazine size in use. Fire rate
highly increases under sustained fire.
Grenade Mods that REGENERATE ammo
The following 4 mods will require purchase of the DLC, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragonkeep
What’s a jigawatt? – Always Shock. Regenerates grenade ammo over
time. Shoots straight forward with a lightning graphic and explodes on
impact. Character may shout “Lightning Bolt!” and a custom throwing
sound will be heard after use while playing in Tiny Tina’s Assault on
Don’t pay it back, pay it forward. – Always Shock. Regenerates grenade
ammo over time. Shoots a bolt of lightning straight forward that
explodes on impact and arcs to nearby targets. Character may shout
“Lightning Bolt!” after use while playing in Tiny Tina’s Assault on
Porkchop Sandwiches! – Always incendiary. Regenerates grenade ammo
over time. Shoots a slow moving fireball straight forward that
explodes on impact. When used, has a custom sound effect when thrown
and the character may shout “fireball!” while in the DLC Tiny Tina’s
Assault on Dragon Keep.
What manner of man are you that can summon up fire without flint or
tinder? – Always incendiary. Regenerates grenade ammo over time.
Shoots a fireball straight forward that explodes on impact. Four
additional fireballs spawn above the spot of the original explosion
and fall to the ground. Character may shout “Fireball!” upon use while
playing in Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.
No wand required. Just point and shoot. – Always slag. Grenades slowly
regenerate over time. Two (Blue rarity) or Four (Purple rarity) child
grenades home in on targets and explode instantly. Character may shout
“Magic Missile!” after use while playing in Tiny Tina’s Assault on
Weapons that DON’T consume any ammo
It’s closer than you think! (no it isn’t) – Does not consume ammunition. Shots fired form a fixed lemniscate (∞) pattern,
ignoring normal recoil behavior. Increased accuracy when aiming down
As an extra note, you’ll need to have at least 1 bullet of pistol ammo, or the Infinity will not fire.
Vladof launchers can have the special ability “reduced ammo
consumption,” which means that every third shot fired is not
deducted from either the magazine or the player’s ammo stock. This
is coupled with lower base damage, though the overall destructive
capacity of the weapon remains roughly the same as an equivalent
launcher from most other manufacturers.
