Hulk is the title of a group of common shotguns manufactured exclusively by Torgue in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Hulk shotguns use the Bandit/Scav triple barrel and are only available in green rarity or above. The Hulk is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description[]

Hulks are always triple barreled and feature a larger than average magazine size among Torgue shotguns at the cost of accuracy, fire rate, and reload speed. They always fire 13 pellets at the cost of 3 ammunition. Despite the reported low accuracy, however, the pellets do not spread too far apart from each other and travel faster than one might expect. As a result, Hulks tend to have much better range than most shotguns, and are usually effective at mid to mid-far ranges while still being devastatingly powerful at close range.

This shotgun can activate both of Krieg's skills Blood Overdrive and Blood Bath at the same time when used against a mob of enemies thanks to the fact that it fires many explosive pellets, enemies can be killed with either the splash damage or a direct hit from the projectile which are the two different triggers for said skills.
