Heart Breaker is a Unique Shotgun manufactured by Hyperion. Heart Breaker is obtained from the mission Safe and Sound located in Caustic Caverns.

Special Weapon Effects

I don't want to set the world on fire... – Increased projectile count, fire rate, +50% critical hit damage boost, and always incendiary. Decreased damage and magazine size. Cannot spawn with a sight. Shoots in heart shaped pattern. Any inflicted damage returns health to the wielder (2% of damage).

Usage & Description

Heart Breaker's high projectile count to low ammo cost ratio make it an effective weapon, but the Hyperion make can make it hard to handle in some situations where accuracy is needed most.

This shotgun is especially well paired with The Bee, often surpassing weapons of Epic or even Legendary rarity in raw damage output. This is particularly useful against enemies and bosses that take more than one magazine to kill due to its relatively efficient ammunition:bullet ratio (1:10 as opposed to most other shotguns, of which the best tend to have a ratio of around 1:6, 2:10, 3:14, or 4:18), excellent magazine size, high fire rate, and high accuracy when emptying an entire magazine without stopping.

As with many other optional quest rewards, on your second playthrough it is often best to wait until you have completed the game before taking this quest; doing so will scale all optional quests to level 50, including their rewards - such as this shotgun.

Notes

Heart Breaker has a standard critical damage boost (provided by it's unique barrel) of +50% but it could spawn with a critical accessory, which would make for a 100% critical hit damage bonus, effectively making double damage for all critical hits, making this weapon even more devastating.

Trivia

  • The weapon's full Title in the game files is "Miss Moxxi's Heart Breaker;" however, "Miss Moxxi's" is treated as a prefix by the game engine and can be replaced with other prefixes.
  • The weapon's flavor text is a reference to The Ink Spots' 1941 song, "I Don't Want To Set the World On Fire", made famous to gamers by its inclusion in Fallout 3 by Bethesda Softworks.
