Spinigun is the title of a group of common assault rifles in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured by Vladof and bandits/scavs and feature the Vladof gatling barrel.

Usage & Description

Spiniguns are characterized by Gatling-style rotating multiple barrels. They are best utilized in very long sprays, allowing the gun to get to its maximum fire rate and to stay there as long as possible. Skills that increase magazine capacity (such as Overload and Filled to the Brim) are useful when using Spiniguns.

The large magazine capacity and high fire rate of Vladof's Spiniguns makes them excellent choices for Salvador when specced into the Rampage tree, thanks to skills such as Inconceivable, 5 Shots or 6, and Keep Firing.... Use of a Hoarder class mod and a Stockpile Relic is recommended due to the extremely high rate of ammo consumption.
