Whenever I freshly switch to Moxxi's Good Touch - e.g.: coming out of a menu with it already equipped, or switching back to it after having used another weapon - my controller starts to vibrate. It doesn't stop vibrating until I fire at least one shot. This is extremely annoying, but it doesn't happen with any other gun.

Is this some sort of bug, or is it a known intended feature of this particular gun? Is there any other workaround for it, aside from turning off controller vibration entirely or wasting a bullet every time the vibrations start?

    I suspect that is a feature of that particular "weapon"...

    The Bad Touch, if I remember correctly, vibrates even more... Oct 19, 2013 at 3:45

Yes. The constant vibration is the primary special effect of that particular gun (though it also has the heal-on-damage all Moxxi-branded weapons get). And no, there is no way to turn it off completely other than simply turning off vibration entirely.

The Wikia wiki on Borderlands has an entire page about the special effects of various weapons, if you ever need a reference.

  • Do the vibrations happen on the PC (if playing on a controller) or Xbox 360 versions too? Because if yes, this question probably has to be edited to remove the [ps3] tag. Nov 19, 2013 at 9:53
  • @galacticninja, they do. Also, what PS3 tag? Nov 19, 2013 at 11:44

It a joke, Its Moxxi's Vibrator. "Her favorite gun" ;)
