Presence is the title of a group of common submachine guns in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Hyperion and features the Dahl barrel.

Usage & Description

Hyperion SMGs are high accurate but they have the feature of "reverse recoil": the longer the accuracy increases the longer the trigger is held. The listed accuracy on the weapon is what is achievable after the sustained fire increases their accuracy to maximum.

This SMG does not have any stats that stand out amongst the other Hyperion SMG weapons. The only aspect improved in it is a reduced recoil thanks to the Dahl barrel that it comes with.
