The New Borderlands Has The Most Australian Joke Ever

If you're Australian, you'll know what a "bogan" is. If not, know they're a derided - but also strangely lovable - rung on the ladder that is Australian society. Think rednecks, only with universally high-pitched voices, and a condition that makes them end every sentence with the word "c**t".

The new Borderlands prequel, having been made largely in Australia, contains many nods to my country of birth, but none better than the bogan shotgun, which just nails it.

Note that I'm not talking about the British lady at the start of the video. I'm talking about the shotgun that drops c-bombs.

In case you haven't worked it out by now, this video is going to be a little NSFW.

I'm not actually a fan of Borderlands, and a lot of that has to do with the series' tone and writing, in particular the level the second game pitched itself at.


But I can always make exceptions for clever cultural gags, especially when they're ones like this we don't usually get to see in big, international games.
