I love the smell of popcorn in the morning. – Fires three grenades per shot and slightly increased magazine size. Reduced ammo consumption.
Usage & Description
The Bearcat is largely similar to a Grenadier. The main differences are its increased grenade count and reduced ammo consumption of 2 bullets per grenade compared to an equivalent Grenadier's 3 bullets per grenade. It is best used at short range, as its accuracy is canceled out by its spread.
Neither skills that specifically boost gun damage, such as Maya's Reaper, or skills that boost grenade damage, such as Axton's Steady, will boost the damage of the weapon. However, more general damage bonuses, and elemental bonuses, will still function normally.
A Bearcat without an elemental capacitor will not have the colored outlines for explosive when held, dropped or inspected. In this case, it is considered to be both explosive and non-elemental for the purposes of skills, taking bonuses from both explosive-boosting skills and relics, as well as non-elemental boosts from Axton's Duty Calls skill.
Unusually, the Bearcat receives full amp damage on all three pellets, despite them being listed on the item card.
The flavor text is a reference to bearcat musk glands that emit an odor reminiscent of popcorn.
