This is the best Legendary shotgun I’ve come across so far in Borderlands 3, and it’s a total beast.
Sure, like most video game shotguns, the range on this thing isn’t great, but it does so much incendiary damage when you get up close and personal, and the reload speed is pretty nuts. Since it consumes two rounds per shot, you pretty much need to reload the gun after every blast, but the reload speed is so speedy that’s basically a non-issue.
