Usage & Description

The Pocket Rocket rapidly consumes pistol ammo but makes up for it with impressive damage output, and can strike multiple enemies much more easily than other common Torgue revolvers. With his available bonuses to magazine size, pistol damage, and ammo regeneration, the Pocket Rocket is an attractive option for Salvador. Likewise, Axton and Krieg can capitalize on its explosive damage.
