***Monica Rial also voiced a talking sniper rifle - yes, you read that correctly - called the Morningstar.

** It is revealed in Either 2 or TPS that Claptrap's creator died before correcting a major fault with their personality programming which apparently no one person can manage or even try to correct, which is likely the root of Jack's decision to destroy the entire line. Maybe who created the New U system deliberately programmed it so that it could not be fiddled around with after start up. It could be that Jack as the CEO and even Angel with her hacking skill plain cannot do such a thing as stop the system working on someone after they've signed up for it.
*** Or on the other hand the canonical explanation could be that the Vault Hunters are just too skilled to die, even with all Jack throws at them (explaining his increasing frustration with you not dying and his belief that killing you once will stick) and so in canon will never need to use the New U stations.

*** One of the options for that mission is to call the Hyperion suicide crisis hotline and end the mission by NOT killing yourself; this could be the "canonical" choice taken by the Vault Hunters.

*** Then why is there a quest in which Jack asks you to literally kill yourself, knowing fully well that you'll respawn?

** To actually give an in-universe explanation, other guns are built by companies who want to make weapons...even if their niche is 'bargain basement cheap' (Bandit), 'easy to reload' (Tediore) or 'BLOWS SH*T UP!' (Torgue), they know that nobody's going to want to buy their gear if you can't hit anything, so they make the effort to make sure the guns are weighted properly, so that people can aim with them. Hyperion (or, rather, Jack, who can make Hyperion do what he wants), on the other hand, took the wrong message from Maliwan's idiosyncratic naming, and thought they could sell their guns on cool names (and can't even do that right, since all their weapons are named for corporate buzzwords), so they don't bother spending the money on proper engineering. Their mechanical gimmick - improved accuracy when firing in rapid succession - mitigates that, slightly, and is a one time engineering expense (it's implied to be the same tech in all their weapons), rather than doing each weapon type's engineering separately, which would further dis-incentivize them to do the weapons right to begin with.

** 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?

** Actually, the New-U stations were recently declared non-canon.
