Quad is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Jakobs and features the quad (Torgue's) barrel.

Usage & Description

Quads have very low accuracy and use four rounds per shot, but in return, have a high pellet count. It is best to use these shotguns at point-blank range, where the limited accuracy is a minimal drawback. At any range beyond this, the ammo cost is simply too high to make efficient use of it.
