The Heart Breaker is an extremely powerful variant of the Thinking Shotgun despite its low rarity resignation. It features a high projectile count to ammo cost ratio amongst shotguns, firing 10 pellets for only one ammo per shot; combined with its predictable spread pattern and critical hit damage boost give it high damage output for a unique weapon even when compared to other Thinking shotguns or the [[Conference Call]]. It also has a transfusion effect that can be effective with its high damage.

The Heart Breaker features a high projectile count to ammo cost ratio for a shotgun, firing 10 pellets (12 with the "Practicable" prefix and foregrip accessory) for only one ammo per shot; combined with its predictable spread pattern and critical hit damage bonus, the Heart Breaker is capable of damage output that is comparable to shotguns of a higher rarity. As a Miss Moxxi weapon, it will heal the user by a portion of the damage dealt.
   
Unlike other Hyperion shotguns, the fixed heart-shaped spread pattern does not become more accurate under prolonged fire, although it still gains the gradual recoil reduction. Its ability to heal the user whilst dealing damage makes it well suited for characters that frequently sustain high damage in close-range combat.

I don't want to set the world on fire... – Always incendiary. Increased projectile count and fire rate, +50% critical hit damage bonus. Decreased damage and magazine size. Cannot spawn with a sight. Shoots in a heart-shaped pattern. Restores 2% of damage dealt as health.

Usage & Description

The Heart Breaker features a high projectile count to ammo cost ratio for a shotgun, firing 10 pellets (12 with the "Practicable" prefix and foregrip accessory) for only one ammo per shot; combined with its predictable spread pattern and critical hit damage bonus, the Heart Breaker is capable of damage output that is comparable to shotguns of a higher rarity. As a Miss Moxxi weapon, it will heal the user by a portion of the damage dealt.

Unlike other Hyperion shotguns, the fixed heart-shaped spread pattern does not become more accurate under prolonged fire, although it still gains the gradual recoil reduction. Its ability to heal the user while dealing damage makes it well suited for characters that frequently sustain high damage in close-range combat. 

The fixed incendiary element means that Krieg can make good use of this weapon as his Hellborn tree increases incendiary damage. Salvador's Rampage and Gun Lust trees can also increase its already high potential.
