* GatlingGood: Every Assault Rifle manufacturer makes rotary assault rifles. They feature a gatling style form of operation with barrels that spin up to maximum rate of fire and eat through ammo quickly (although the legendary Vladof Shredifier reaches top speed almost immediately, Dahl "Miniguns" don't need to spool up and Torgue "Spitters" have faulty motors that give them a randomized rate of fire). Jakobs spiniguns, however, fire all three spinigun barrels at the same time, effectively turning it into an accurate shotgun. Non-Jakobs Pistols can also come with a double rotary barrel which gives them ridiculously fast fire rates. Badass Goliaths heft massive miniguns, literally roughly the same size as themselves, into combat -- though, like all Goliaths, they drop their weapon when enraged. Badassasaurus has rocket-firing miniguns mounted as its "arms".

Those used to the first game's control layout may find themselves inadvertently using their action skills and blowing themselves up with their own grenades. You are, however, able to change the control scheme to "Classic" ''Borderlands'' in the options menu.

* FantasticRacism: Subverted in the Tiny Tina DLC. At one point while fighting the dwarves, Lilith comments that all of them look like Salvador. Tina tries to dismiss it, but the others wonder if she's being a little racist. Tina then yells and asks Salvador downstairs if it's okay that all the dwarves look like him. He yells back and says that he's cool with it.
