|[Orc (SMG) Variants]|
The Orc is a unique submachine gun manufactured by Bandit. It appears in the DLC expansion Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. It is obtained from the mission Magic Slaughter: Round 5 in Murderlin's Temple.
Special Weapon Effects
Have I achieved worth yet? – Reduced damage and reload speed, increased accuracy and magazine size. It has a chance to randomly activate a short-lived boost that causes bullets to split extra projectiles downward as they travel and ricochet and split into 3 upon impact with surfaces. While this boost is activated, reload speed and fire rate increase dramatically.
Usage & Description
The Orc's special boost separates it greatly from other Bandit SMGs. While active the buff offers extra projectiles and increased fire rate to mitigate the Orc's reduced damage, and as a Bandit weapon the normally poor reload speed is enhanced.
These properties may be passed to another weapon by switching, similar to the Grog Nozzle sharing its drunken effect with switched weapons. Rocket Launchers may benefit greatly from the Orc's buff, enjoying an increased projectile count while consuming no additional rocket ammo, and in particular having their usually long reload times dramatically shortened.
The Orc is an effective off-hand weapon for Gunzerkers, as the special fire rate, reload speed, and split/ricochet boost will transfer to the main hand weapon when it activates, as well as to the other weapon pair when switching.
- The flavor text on this weapon is a direct quote from the Discworld novel Unseen Academicals.
- This is one of the very few purple rarity weapons in the game that sport a red flavor text.
