Transaction is the title of a group of common sniper rifles in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Hyperion and features the Hyperion barrel.

Usage & Description

Hyperion sniper rifles have low rate of fire; they start with low initial accuracy which increases while aiming and resets when players stop aiming. This makes them poor weapons for hipshooting or quick-scoping. Otherwise Hyperion sniper rifles have excellent accuracy and almost no recoil while aiming.

The Transaction uses the Hyperion barrel, giving it a higher accuracy and recoil reduction, at the price of decreased size magazine. Such a feature of the weapons with Hyperion barrel as a reduced base damage in Transaction is leveled by the coincidence of the manufacturers of weapons and barrel.
