In the latest issue of Game Informer, it mentions how gun manufacturers in Borderlands 2 have been revamped a bit, and will now have their own style and personality, and now the magazine’s official site has some more information pertaining to the gun peddlers.

The site has a rather thick list of each one, along with descriptions of each along with what is on offer. Below, you will find a few highlights.

Bandits have started putting together their own weaponry but it will be noticeably “ramshackle,” with glass bottles being used as scopes, screws for sights, and whatnot. The guns will also have larger magazines compared to most manufacturers, but with size comes a price as they will require longer reload times.

There is also the Dahl which carry more modern, realistic guns like you would see in a military shooter game, and there’s also the Hyperion – famous for making Claptrap – whose guns will “feature the same look” as our favorite yellow and white robot.

Vladof weapons will have the highest fire rate in the game along with minigun barrels as attachments on weapons similar to AK47s.

If you head on through here, you can also find out more on Tediore, Torgue, Maliwan, and Jakobs.

2K will be streaming the first look at Borderlands 2 during gamescom next week, and the game is set for launch during the publisher’s FY2013.
