Mainstream'd! – Fires 5 horizontal shots in a line, shaped in a "V" pattern. Consumes 2 ammo per shot.
Usage & Description
The Pitchfork has a tight 5 projectile spread and fires in bursts when zoomed. When trying to lead shots on enemies moving laterally, the spread greatly increases the chance of landing a critical hit. One can also utilize the burst by waving the gun down or up quickly during the burst, to help avoid a miss due to a sudden duck or roll that some of the bandits do.
The extra 4 projectiles are not listed on the Pitchfork's itemcard, meaning every projectile receives full amp damage.
The rifle's name and flavor text is a reference to the 'Borderlands is for Real Gamers' video, starring a fictionalized version of Gearbox president Randy Pitchford. The flavor text is a direct quote from the video.
Because of the combination of the unique spread and the damage from a sniper rifle, this gun is a great weapon choice for getting the "No Scope, No Problem" and "Leaf on the Second Wind" sniper rifle challenge.
