Special Weapon Effects
Yeah, booze'll do that to ya... – Increased damage and reduced bullet speed.
Usage & Description
Sloth is an above-average weapon when compared with sniper rifles of the same level, but the slow projectile speed make it difficult to use against moving targets (especially flying ones) without leading the target. Even with this downside, in terms of raw damage, the Sloth is an extremely powerful sniper rifle.
Both Zer0 and Maya can make a greater use of this weapon with their skills that increase projectile movement speed, being Vel0city and Accelerate, respectively. In addition to this, the same skills increase weapon damage, meaning that the Sloth's usefulness becomes even greater.
- The flavor text refers to the lethargic effects of a hangover.
- The weapon's name, Sloth, compares its lowered projectile speed to the animal's slow movement speed.
- This weapon was leaked in IGN's 'Borderlands 2 - Gunzerker Class Preview'
