It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from viruses.
Special Weapon Effects
OMG, what's it doing to Sanchez?! – Increased magazine size, weapon damage. and accuracy.
Usage & Description
The Flayer is a significant improvement over a standard Coach Gun, as its upsides negate the usual downsides of normal Jakobs shotguns (low magazine size and accuracy). Coupled with its increased damage, the Flayer can easily kill tough enemies or multiple weaker foes in a single magazine.
It should be noted that while the Flayer's damage per second is unrivaled in regards to other Jakobs shotguns, this only applies in close range as it suffers from heavy recoil.
