** The Launch trailer also shows us how awesome our new vault hunters are, against the army of Handsome Jack's mercs after the train crash from the opening, and that some familiar faces from the previous game have their backs. Special mention goes to [[spoiler: Lilith]] tag-teaming with Maya to wipe the floor with a whole platoon of them before blowing them up and bumping fists, mouthing "boom". Totally badass women. Unfortunately, [[NeverTrustATrailer this didn't appear ingame]].

** What's better than using a gun or a [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hyperion firearm]]? How about ramming a salvo of kunai into his chest if you're playing as Zer0?

* [[spoiler: Killing Handsome Jack.]] After all the shit this homicidal lunatic puts you through, [[spoiler:you get to enjoy him pitifully begging for his life after you defeat the Warrior. And it's not a cutscene death either. You get to pull the trigger on him yourself, with whatever gun you want, at any point during his speech. Thank you, Gearbox.]]

* Any fan of Westerns can appreciate seeing the Vault Hunters fanning the hammer whenever they're firing a revolver really quickly, especially when they're in epic gun battles on the Bloodshot Dam, in Opportunity, at Sawtooth Cauldron, or, better still, battling Nisha in Lynchwood. It's a simple detail, but it's nice, considering how all the games are basically classic Westerns and Gangster movies [-IN SPACE!-] that meet ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', ''Literature/IRobot'' and ''Film/MadMax'' all at once.

** Being Krieg in this situation is especially fun because all the things Jack says about you, (that you're a murderer, a bandit, a ''psycopath'') are all true. The knowledge that you're all these things and more and STILL more righteous than him makes it so satisfying to land that buzz-axe into his soft face. Better yet, if he ''hadn't'' ordered those experiments on ya, you wouldn't be the badass standing there about to kill him. Bonus points if you use your buzz axe, which is just like the one that his grandmother had used to discipline him as a child. Because nothing says revenge quite like forcing your enemy to relive childhood trauma while you kill them.

** Or, you could literally execute him with Zer0's Executi0n.
** OR, you could shoot him [[VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel in the back]], as a nice CallBack to the moment where he stopped being a rational man and slowly transformed into Big Brother.

** If you want a truly canon death, just shoot him in the abdomen, which he's covering with his hands.

** Bonus points go to Zer0, who kills two Hyperion soldiers in what is arguably the most badass [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalement]] ever. After tricking one Engineer into punching his hologram, he runs the other through from behind with a katana, does a flying somersault off of his (still standing) body, and kicks off the first Engineer, sending him flying right into the blade, chest first. CutscenePowerToTheMax, sure, but undeniably epic.

** And of course, just the simple, basic melee attack. Nothing like an anti-climatic end for a over-the-top SmugSnake with AGodAmI delusions, delivered by a quick downward swing from a tomahawk.

*** Not to mention she ''deliberately cut her arm off'' so she could install the robotic one!

** Or hell, investing in "Close Enough", which gives up to a 50% chance for misses to ricochet and hit the target anyway. ESPECIALLY with E-Tech weapons that replace the bullets with things like lasers, making it look like you hit exactly what you were aiming at.

** The only thing that's anywhere near as awesome is playing as Maya and using ''your own'' [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Siren powers]] '' to do so.

** Or the Morningstar, nothing says Irony like killing them guy with a gun his company sent you to make you feel bad.
** Speaking of talking guns, you could also use the Loader AI core from "Out of Body Experience" if you turned him into a gun. He wanted to help you kill people after all. "Good decision", indeed.
** Heck, there's also doing so with ''the first gun you get in the game''. "Heh". Thanks, Claptrap.

After all the adventures you went through, hoops you leapt through, badasses you killed (including the skyscraper-sized monster you just fought, possibly with a gun that shoots lightning to boot), you look back on it all, including the moment you got that humble pistol, and get like "Heh". Thanks, Claptrap.

** The point is: It's awesome and satisfying no matter how you do it, because the very people he said were dirt are making Pandora a better place.
