Borderlands Wiki

Vision is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Hyperion and feature the Hyperion barrel.

Usage & Description

Hyperion repeater pistols are very 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 Vision utilizes the Hyperion pistol barrel which gives it more benefits than it usually does with other weapon types. The advantages of this weapon are increased accuracy, +33% bonus on critical hit damage as well as reduced recoil. The downside of this gun compared with other Hyperion pistols are smaller magazine sizes and reduced base damage.
