Face Puncher in Borderlands 3
Stats and Perks
The Face Puncher legendary shotgun is very unique weapon designed for players that have a melee focused build, and not really anyone else. We’ll get to that in a second…
Its stats, like most of the equipment in Borderlands 3, are randomized and leveled to your character. However, like all legendary weapons, it has some extra perks.
It has the unique flavor text perk Man Your Own Jackhammer. What it does is deliver a blast as powerful as your melee attack if all of the pellets hit.
So, if you’re not speccing your vault hunter towards melee attacks, then the Face Puncher is going to be quite weak. However, if you design your character build to enhance melee damage, such as Amara’s green Brawl skill tree, then the Face Puncher will pack a serious erm, punch.
