Voice Actor JB Smoove
Everyone loves Gus. He's chill, he's nice. He's a living shotgun with a vacuum built in - all in the standard stuff you want out of a Gatlian. You can rely on him in close-range combat and to suck up bullets heading your way. Oh, and he can launch discs into walls or decapitate enemies with them. That really is a lot of good stuff. Aren't you glad you rescued him from Kubris?
