It’s unique approach, which combines role-playing and first person shooting, resulted in millions of fans from all over the world. One of the most interesting parts of Borderlands 2 is the guns. In this article, were are going to cover the gun known as the Borderlands 2 Conference Call in detail.


Borderlands 2 Conferencce Call


The Conference Call in Borderlands 2 is one of the most sought-after guns in the game. One big reason for this is because of its Legendary status. It’s a gun that is manufactured by the Hyperion.


Contrary to popular belief, the Conference Call actually drops from any loot source that is deemed suitable. The only problem is that it’s drop rate are abysmally low. This is the reason why most are farming The Warrior, which is found in the Vault Of The Warrior, because it has a slightly increased drop rate compared to other sources.


While The Warriors may be the preferred farming choice, the Handsome Sorcerer, which is located in the Dragon Keep, also has an increased drop rate for the Conference Call.


Special Weapon Effects


As Conference Call is a shotgun, its effectiveness is maximized in close quarters. Once the trigger is pulled, the Conference Call fires 5 projectiles. Each of the projectiles further disintegrates to more projectile one impact, or if the projectile reaches a certain distance.


The magazine of the Conference Call can be upgraded carry more ammo, at a cost of decreased accuracy.


What You Can Expect From The Conference Call


When you evaluate the Conference Call from a statistic standpoint, it’s really not that different from the Thinking shotgun, which is just a purple-rarity gun. The slight difference is that the Thinking shotgun has a bit lower accuracy rate of 5% when compared to the Conference Call; although the Thinking shotgun can fire an extra one round than the Conference Call on a single-magazine basis.


However, that is not the overall picture. It’s the Conference Call’s special effect that sets it apart from other shotguns. The Conference Call’s projectile periodically spawns more projectiles as it travels. Sometimes, a single projectile can spawn up to 4 projectiles in total.


The spawned projectiles shoot in a direction that is horizontally perpendicular to the original projectile. The two spawned projects also fly opposite from each other.


This is the reason why the Conference Call is able to deal higher amounts of damage to most targets, and even more damage to larger targets (e.g. Terramorphous the Invincible or The Warrior). The Conference Call is also able to bypass shields like the ones that are carried by the Nomad Torturers.


The Conference Call’s damage can be increased substantially by obtaining the “Practicable” prefix; and also with the associated extra pellet count, which increases its total projectile count from the standard of 5 to 7.


Bottom Line


The Conference Call is one of the best guns in the game. Arguably, it’s the best shotgun in Borderlands 2. The drop rate is expected to be very low as it’s a legendary gun. It’s commonly farmed by killing The Warrior. The Conference Call is prized for its special effects; a gun that fires projectiles that have the ability to spawn more projectiles. It’s definitely a gun that is worth having.
