** WordofGod says Jack honest to god believes he's doing the right thing. He lied to himself about the severity of whatever Angel did to her mother.

** Because Hyperion weapons have low base accuracy. And before you point out that this makes no sense as to why the gun would make the screen sway that much, I would like to point out that ''you are playing a Borderlands game.''

* OK, when the player is aiming their gun, there will normally be a realistic amount of weapon sway. But when the player aims a Hyperion weapon, the hands suddenly start jerking around as if they had Parkinson's. What's up with that?

** Mordy, at least, is implied to have simply drank the money away (and given who he is, this is not entirely unplausable). Roland had to fund the entirety of the Crimson Raiders, as his recruitment echos said that he's able to provide food and shelter to anyone who needs it, and likely still has a considerable sum that is locked away only for Raider-related expenses. Lilith is implied to have funded her "one-woman war" against the bandits out of her pocket for the same amount of time, and there's no indication Brick is poor at all (he is the king of one of the largest bandit gangs, which can't be cheap). That or all their money got burnt up when Wilhelm sacked New Haven.

*** Given the hilarious amount of weird and insane laws Hyperion enforces, Doc Mercy might have gotten his license because Hyperion deemed killing Bandits and Crimson Raiders to be sound medical practices. After all that does ensure the good health of Hyperion workers.

Added DiffLines:

** A more likely reason is because Jack is literally hours away from waking the warrior, so in his hubris he thought he no longer had to worry about any other threat, since the Warrior would have won the day after it awoke. Given Jack's megalomania and psychosis, him ignoring the logic of destroying Sanctuary when it's vulnerable is perfectly within his character, since it would make him an even bigger "hero". That or he tried to use the "Heroes show mercy" justification he talked about shortly before fighting The Bunker. The reason is that, as someone else on this series page has pointed out, Hyperion had more than enough conventional troops to overtake the planet if Jack simply just spammed Loaders and Constructors at you, but he's so insane that he never even considers this a viable option.

** Tales from the Borderlands reveals that Jack had at least two wives (Although it's unsure if Moxxi is considered one of them, since while she did date Jack it was never specified if they married) so the inconsistency might be chalked up to them referring to different wives.

** Jack is GenreSavvy enough to know that if he attacked Sanctuary with artillery, NoOneCouldSurviveThat.
