Projectile Convergence 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 commonly spawns with the Tediore, bandit/scavs and also Maliwan barrels.

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.

The Projectile Convergence can come with a variety of barrels, each one can give the gun different properties:

  • Tediore barrel (lite) – Increases reload speed and accuracy, but decreases damage.
  • Bandit/scav barrel ("heavy") – Increases the weapon damage but decreases accuracy;
  • Maliwan barrel (stock) – Increases weapon accuracy. Due to a glitch in the weapon generation system, this variants can spawn only without elemental capacitor.

Notable variants

  • The "Gearbox Projectile Convergence" in white rarity in Borderlands 2 is available exclusively as part of the Premiere Club pre-order bonus package.
