Great, kid. – On a critical hit, deals shock damage equivalent to the critical hit.

Usage & Description

The Cocky Bastard's unique perk essentially doubles the damage of a critical hit, making it exceptionally powerful for sniping critical spots. It can be used as a reliable sniper rifle that few enemies can resist against.


  • The Cocky Bastard and Skullmasher were previously glitched and would only spawn in loot chests of its DLC. This was patched in the April 24, 2020 hotfix, and now both weapons drop from Eista.
