Usage & Description
Another legendary weapon returning from the original Borderlands game, the Skullmasher is largely unchanged. The most prominent difference between its Borderlands 2 and original iterations is that in Borderlands 2, it is capable of semiautomatic fire and therefore a much faster fire rate than was ever possible in Borderlands. Another difference is that in Borderlands 2, the Skullmasher fires a tight spread of 5 sniper rifle bullets, instead of the original's 6. However, like its predecessor, each shot only costs one bullet, and if all 5 bullets connect the Skullmasher is capable of much higher raw damage output than most of its peers. It tends to have very low accuracy for a sniper, however. The Skullmasher is even less accurate than its original incarnation. Due to its spread it is best used at mid-range, taking careful aim at critical points, against ludicrously large enemies such as The Warrior, or flying enemies.
