Special Weapon Effects
Abt Natural – Massive magazine, heavily increased damage (around 160,000 at level 72, non-overpowered). Always Corrosive. Somewhat decreased weapon sway and recoil reduction for a Bandit pistol.
Usage & Description
The Gub has very high boosted damage, which works well together with the larger magazines inherent to Bandit weapons. However, the corrosive effect limits it slightly, making it less useful against any non-armored foe.
The Gub also appears to have less aim-sway and recoil while firing (even better with a gun-stock), compared to a same-level bandit pistol, but the difference is minor in effect and the accuracy can still be considered less than impressive for a legendary. With that being said, it would be wise to use only at close-to-mid range, using it against enemies vulnerable to corrosive damage, otherwise the effectiveness of this weapon can be fairly limited to those not specced into either an element or pistol build.
- Sinkhole had a 100% drop chance of this weapon on 10/19/13 as part of the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt. A hotfix on that day increased the Gub's damage and magazine size.
- The flavor text as well as the name are portions of quotes from Woody Allen's 1969 film Take the Money and Run, specifically the bank robbery scene.
- The Argyle design on the gun is generally considered Woody Allen's preferred texture for his clothes, seen on most of his public images.
