If there is to be one, what would you like them to be? How about a shotgun specialist, there is not one in either Borderlands game. I think all other gun types have been covered but the shotgun.

Thinking is the hardest kind of work, which is probably why so few engage in it.

FYI Roland had Shotgun Skills.

We could have a slag/e-tech specialist :)

I've already posted my Wereskag ideas in other threads, but I did come up with an idea for a "Holy Man" type of character as well. So please, if you guys are willing to take a look, let me know what you think.

Holy Man: Shaktis

Shaktis came to Pandora in search of freedom from religious persecution. What he found instead was the Hyperion Corporation attempting to take total control of the planet, rendering it a far cry from what he was looking forward to. In order to satisfy his own desires for freedom, Shaktis has decided to take up arms against the Hyperion Corporation and rid Pandora of its newest oppressors.

Consecrate: Consecrates the land the player is currently standing on in a circle around him, using a 3 meter radius as a default. While standing on this consecrated land, the player and teammates deal +40% damage, +50% critical hit damage, +75% fire rate, take -25% damage and -50% effect duration. Any enemies who enter the area deal with -60% movement speed, +50% damage taken, -50% gun accuracy. Consecrate lasts 30 seconds with a 50 second cooldown.

Skill Trees:
Creator focuses on team support
Preserver focuses on being a complete tank
Destroyer focuses on dealing additional fire damage

Creator
Tier 1
Weakness Is My Strength – player gains health regen when shields are depleted (1/2/3/4/5%)
Bigger Is Better – increases team magazine size (6/12/18/24/30%)
Tier 2
Whites of Their Eyes – increases bullet speed and gun accuracy (20/40/60/80/100%, 4/8/12/16/20%)

Tier 3
Ask Questions Later – allies regenerate ammo while on the consecrated land (2/4/6/8/10%)
An Apple a Day – using consecrate restores 50% of health and shields to anyone who is standing on the area when it is consecrated
Roll the Dice – Scoring a critical hit increases critical hit damage of the next shot fired, but decreases regular damage of the next shot fired (+8/16/24/32/40% CH damage, -9/18/27/36/45% other damage)
Tier 4
Angel of Mercy – shooting allies from on consecrated land heals them (7/14/21/28/35% of damage is healed)
Now You See Me… – stepping outside the consecrated area doubles both damage done and damage taken for the player
Tier 5
Wings of a Dream – Increases the length of consecrate (6/12/18/24/30%)
Tier 6
You Get One Brah! – all allies have the land beneath them consecrated when it is used. Consecrated land does not stack.

Or pistols, there's some pretty epic pistols that are underrated, minus the UH, and other ridiculously overpowered pistols.

Although the Gunzerker may gain the dual-wield while Gunzerking, my preference would be a CHR centered around pistols, dual-wielding -constantly-

Isn't that what Gaige is? I can't imagine using any other kind of gun with her, except the occasional assault rifle.
