Moonface is an unique aftermarket shotgun in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Jakobs. It is obtained from the mission Red, Then Dead located in Lunar Launching Station.

Special Effect[]

What a BOOMING smile you have. – Projectiles fire in a smiley face pattern, with low velocity and a slow sine oscillation trajectory. Deals 50% unlisted explosive splash damage on impact. Consumes 1 ammo per shot.

Usage & Description[]

The Moonface is a powerful variant of the Quad shotgun, and is one of the few weapons that are capable of inflicting both elemental and non-elemental damage simultaneously.

With this feature, its effective damage potential is much higher than what is listed, or even what a second glance may imply. Because no known enemy resists both explosive and non-elemental damage, it can be used in virtually any situation effectively.

The Moonface's projectile pattern makes it only effective for close-range combat and/or on large targets.


Moonface Shot Pattern

The shot pattern

  • Because it inflicts both explosive and non-elemental damage, it receives the full benefits of effects improving either one.
  • The Moonface can spawn with the Rustler's prefix for an increased pellet count. The additional pellets will spawn on top of the pre-existing ones, similar to the Blockhead.
