Welcome back, babe!

That's her name, if you call her White Death you are old. And it sounds like white power/supremacism (this game has problems enough with racism acusations).

I know I should continue farming for a gromky, but she looks sexy with this knife.

I love my Gromky Lyuda. It's incendiary, so I can't really use it against loaders like I would like, but it's still awesome

Also, what the hell man? Using a controller on the glorious PC version.

I guess the original name was White Death but Gearbox patch it to Lyuda. I don't know the reason, just trolling with the racism stuff. Old school gamers keep calling her white death. Lyuda is referece to Lyudmila Mikhailivna Pavlichenko, a badass soviet sniper in WW2.

haha I hate moving with "wasd", but sometimes I use the mouse for precision shots. Controler on the left, mouse on the right, and use my index on spacebar to jump.

An elemental one could fit in my cataclysm maya... Let's kill Gettle a little more. I little bit of old school farming, I'm tired of those midgets.

aaaanndd from the wiki

The weapon's original name is a reference to Simo Häyhä a Finnish sniper with over 500 recorded kills during the Winter War between Finland and Russia from 1939 to 1940, earning him the nickname White Death.

The weapon's changed name of Lyuda refers to female Soviet sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko, one of the most successful female snipers in history. The name Lyuda is the diminutive form of the name Lyudmila.

I think that 'White Death' was a cooler name. That guy killed more people than Lyudmila. Since we're already celebrating a person responsible for hundreds of deaths, why not give the title to the one who's killed more?
