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 feature the Hyperion barrel.

Usage & Description

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

The Transaction uses the Hyperion barrel, giving it higher accuracy and recoil reduction, at the price of decreased magazine size.

Notable variants

  • InvaderLegendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel that fires a burst of five rounds when the scope is used.
