For other uses, see Pounder.

Pounder is the title of a group of common shotguns manufactured exclusively by Torgue. The Pounder is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

This shotgun uses the Jakobs double barrel, meaning that it consumes 2 rounds per shot and has a higher recoil. This weapon is a decent Torgue shotgun available early in the game, but is easily outperformed by the Hulk and Ravager which unlike this one, are not available in white rarity.

Notable Variants

  • Landscaper - Unique explosive shotgun which fires pellets that behave like landmines, exploding when an enemy approaches.


  • The title "Pounder" belonged originally to a group of combat rifles in Borderlands characterized by semi-automatic fire, a 6-shot magazine, and increased damage per projectile.
