How does the Shrine of the Gunbringer work?

Behind the W4R-D3N under Marcus' Shrine is a little pit with a button next to it. If you push the button the pit closes and doesn't open again. I'm guessing this is used in co-op since I can't activate it while I'm in the pit.

Is this used for anything in particular or is it just a decoration of sorts and for fun?

damn, two duplicate questions in one day. I'm losing it – VanBuzzKill Jan 28 '13 at 22:29
Don't get discouraged! Our search and "related questions" are both terrible. Duplicates are bound to happen. – Fluttershy Jan 28 '13 at 22:46

If you sacrifice yourself, the Marcus shrine will yield a random rare weapon and some money.

It is easiest to do this in co-op, although you can do it in single player if you manage to lure a bandit into the hole. Note however that you can only do this one time per level - even if you accidentally close the pit when no one is inside of it, you don't get a chance to redo the sacrifice and will have to exit and re-enter the area.

Once per playthrough or once per time the level is loaded? – VanBuzzKill Jan 29 '13 at 13:14
@DomenikVanBuskirk once per time the level is loaded. I'll edit my answer to be clearer. – Kotsu Jan 29 '13 at 15:36
