Special Weapon Effects

Bison Bison had had had had had Bison Bison Bison shi shi shi – Increased damage and slightly reduced accuracy. Cannot spawn with a scope.

Usage & Description

The incredibly high damage of the Buffalo is offset by the lack of a scope, requiring the use of iron sights. This makes the Buffalo more difficult than other sniper rifles to use at extreme ranges. However, in mid-range combat, the clear iron sights make it easier for peripheral vision and situational awareness to be maintained while delivering the deadly accuracy, critical hit bonus and damage of a Jakobs sniper rifle.

If Demon Hunter is taken after finishing the main story in True Vault Hunter Mode, the Buffalo will be scaled to Level 50 when completed and has the potential to be a top-tier sniper rifle.


  • The rifle is similar in usage to Whitting's Elephant Gun, which was also attained by killing a large Skag.
  • When used with Decepti0n, a crosshair will appear above the gun muzzle. With the gun damage bonus and gun critical hit damage bonus granted by Decepti0n, this weapon becomes more deadly as precise shots with devastating damage can be delivered at longer ranges.
  • As the Buffalo will always lack a scope, it cannot spawn with the accessories that would affix to the scope. These include the fire rate (Klook), damage (Skookum) and magazine size (Hyiu) accessories.


  • The flavor text refers to linguistic riddles based on the words buffalo, had, and shi.
