Pounder is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Torgue and feature the double (Jakobs) barrel.

Usage & Description

As the Pounder fires from a double barrel, it has an increased pellet count that comes at the cost of ammo consumption, recoil, and accuracy. It is a decent Torgue shotgun available early in the game, but is easily outperformed by the Hulk and Ravager which unlike the Pounder, are not available in white rarity.
