Borderlands 2: Details For Gunzerker And Siren Classes

We're sure you've heard of the Berzerker class; role-playing aficionados especially are probably familiar with the aggressive character.

But what about a Gunzerker? Yeah, that's a first, isn't it? Gearbox has released more details on this new class for Borderlands 2 and as you can see, it's bad-ass destruction combined with a bit of strategy.

You can only dual-wield for a certain amount of time, first off. That really means you have to plan ahead. If you want to increase the "gunzerking" time for each kill you make, you can use the Yippe Ki Yay skill in the Rampage tree, but that's only one example. There are two other skill trees, too: the Brawn one is "more attuned to being a tank in multiplayer." The third, Gun Lust, focuses on your firearms; the No Kill Like Overkill ability converts any extra damage you inflict into health for you. ...nice.

The developer also confirmed that the Siren class would be returning, but it'll be a little different this time around. Well, actually, lead writer Anthony Burch said it would be "very, very different and very, very new." Do you want to see the Siren overhauled in such a way? Or were you happy with her the first time around?

If they want to change the classes up that's fine, I just hope there's another sniper type class. I loved borderlands, probably the best co-op I've ever played, I still don't understand why more games don't set it up like gearbox did. Easy to yet into games, simple to drop out, and your stats and pick-ups carried over all the time!

Looking forward to this one!

I thought the "skill tree" was pretty sad in Borderlands. Terrible in fact. That, and the weapons felt weightless and sported the worst hit detection of this gen's fps.

That sucks, I thought the game was crack addicting! Did you ever play as the Soldier? I thought it had some of the best gunplay of this gen. Not to mention the best COOP experience!

Didn't like the first one just couldn't get used to the cell shaded graphics for me. Shame really as some of my mates have had good times with this game. Oh well I'll leave this one too.

I feel the same with it. I have watched my flatmates play this game for hours but it just looks so boring. I give the game credit for its art department, some of the visuals are nice But the gameplay is just so boring.

It's essentially a game full of side missions. The main game never really progresses. I thought the main point of this game was to collect many different parts to custmoise a weapon, it turns out that the game just offers many different weapons with different stats... thats it, once I found that out I didn't give the game any piece of my time. I watched my flatmates get excited over obtaining a new weapon... but I just don't understand why it was so exciting...

But my main problem with a game like this is that I have already played it through Fallout 3 the same way I feel about Rage. While they might have techinical advantages I just have no interest exploring another post-apocaylptic world.

I wish you guys would give it another shot. I bought this game on the PSN for cheap and felt like I definitely got a deal!

The cell-shaded graphics worked great in this game. Granted, the AI could be a little smarter sometimes, but overall it was tons of fun.

And Ultima, I understand what youre saying about the game being a lot of side missions, but technically most of these open world sandbox games are just a bunch of side missions. The main mission was to reach the vault - period. Unfortunately, and I think everyone who played this game can agree, the ending to this game was TERRIBLE! I think even Gearbox knows it sucked - it just kind of ends....and that's it.

Still looking forward to Borderlands 2 - as it was tons of fun.

i really hope they have fixed the boring tedious missions.
i stopped playing because, well, running around a map searching boxes for flowers is not exactly fun!
let alone trying to do that while 1000000000000 enemies are trying to kill you!
thats what put me off, repetitive boring missions i could put up with but not being able to do what you need to really pissed me off!
i mean how are you suppose to search for the required items if your spending your whole time killing enemies?
kill these billion enemies so another billion appear, so you kill those billion so another billion appear.
when does it end!?
oh that, and the fact that the game corrupted my save 3 times in a row!
then when i went and asked for a refund they accused me of doing it deliberately just so i could get my money back.
yea, suffice to say i wont be buying any more of gearboxes games if thats how they handle customer support!
