Borderlands 3 has added a brand new gun that ideas its hat to certainly one of Destiny’s most well-known weapons.
The Borderlands 3 gun in query is a legendary assault rifle referred to as Good Juju. Obviously, the identify of the gun is a reference to Destiny unique pulse rifle Bad Juju, which gamers of the primary Destiny will know nicely. What’s attention-grabbing although is it shares most of the perks of Destiny’s Bad Juju, too. Good Juju, like Bad Juju, has burst fireplace. Good Juju, like Bad Juju, reloads on kill. Both weapons have full auto. And even Good Juju’s flavour textual content is a reference to Bad Juju.
Good Juju: “Kinda, sorta desires to finish all existence.”
Bad Juju: “If you consider your weapon desires to finish all existence, then so it’ll.”
What’s good about this reference is it is a digital handshake between two video games seen very a lot as rivals through the years. Destiny, described as a shared-world shooter with a heavy deal with co-op looting, adopted Borderlands 1 and 2, each of which have been massively common co-op looter shooters. And now we now have Borderlands 3 popping out at a time when Destiny 2 is already established.
This is not the primary Destiny reference to be present in Borderlands 3, both. Borderlands 3 has a “Loot-o-Gram”, an merchandise that can be utilized to alternate for a weapon. This is a riff on Destiny’s engrams. And the Loot-o-Gram can solely be dropped by a uncommon spawn referred to as Dinkle-Bot, which is the community-granted nickname for Destiny’s Ghost character, initially voiced by Peter Dinklage.
The Destiny neighborhood has after all picked up on Borderlands 3’s Good Juju, and gamers are having amusing with it. As far as I am conscious, Destiny doesn’t have any Borderlands references.
