Jack-o'-Cannon is an unique shotgun in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Torgue. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Your body lies beaten, battered and broken. – Launches flaming Jack-o'-lanterns that explode upon impact. The projectiles bounce on uneven terrain. Consumes two ammo per shot. No movement speed penalty when aiming down sights.

Usage & Description

The projectiles of the Jack-o'-Cannon behave as grenades and the weapon should be as a grenade launcher, not a shotgun. Its reduced ammo consumption, decent fire rate and relatively large blast radius lend it to excel at mid-range combat, particularly for thinning out large, tightly packed groups of enemies. It also proves effective at damaging individual enemies hiding behind cover, as targets hit directly are usually dazed temporarily.


  • Undeadlift was the drop source for the Jack-o'-Cannon during the Bloody Harvest Celebration special event.
    • A SHiFT code (with an expiration date of November 30, 2014) to acquire the Jack-o'-Cannon was released online following the Bloody Harvest Celebration.
    • After the January 25, 2016 hotfix, the Jack-O'-Cannon is now available as a world drop.
    • Additionally, it is sometimes available as Item of The Day at Weapon Vending Machines. It can also be obtained from the Grinder.
  • The Jack-o'-Cannon can only spawn with a Hyperion stock.
  • The Jack-o'-Cannon can spawn with the vertical grip (increased pellet count) accessory but is unaffected by it.
  • The Jack-o'-Cannon can never spawn with a scope.
    • The Jack-o'-Cannon's "full speed while aiming down sights" effect is caused by the scope part being forced to be completely empty (or NULL), rather than using the "Scope_None" part found on other iron-sighted weapons. Setting the scope part to NULL on any other weapon will produce the same effect.
    • The same setting is present on the E-GUN, Zappinator and the Torrent.


  • The Red Text is a reference to a line the Headless Horseman boss says in World of Warcraft when a player dies. The full line is: Your body lies beaten, battered and broken. Let my curse be your own, fate has spoken.
