Usage & Description
The Stalker is a powerful close-mid range weapon best considered a submachine gun alternative and should be used in enclosed spaces, where the projectiles are more likely to hit a target after ricocheting. In this situation, it can prove to be a devastating weapon that can tear through any common enemy with surprising efficiency.
While it is a versatile weapon that can fill a variety of roles, ammo consumption is a concern with its high fire rate and mediocre ammo reserve capacity.
The Stalker's slow bullet speed benefits greatly from Zer0’s Vel0city or Maya’s Accelerate skill. Regardless, the Stalker’s accuracy may leave some to be desired, making its range limited. All of these traits combined make for an excellent machine pistol backup, boasting surprising damage per second (DPS) at close range.
- The Stalker doesn't have a unique skin like most first-generation pearlescents, such as the Bearcat or the Avenger. It uses the skin of a purple-quality Vladof pistol.
- The Stalker is a returning weapon from Borderlands, and the only pearlescent to return with its original weapon rarity.
