Ravagers deal immense close-range damage with the bonus explosive damage, making them among the most powerful non-legendary shotguns in the game in terms of raw damage. At distances past point-blank, the wielder can lead the target to deal damage to large enemies.
The weapon card damage score does not account for the explosive damage bonus and is therefore lower than the actual damage output.
The Ravager can trigger either one of Krieg's skils Blood Bath, Blood Overdrive or both depending on how an enemy is killed, with a direct hit or by the splash damage of one of the pellets.
Gaige's Close Enough works with these explosive bullets, too, causing them to ricochet and explode on target from maximum range for devastating damage.
Flakker - Legendary shotgun with a low projectile count, high damage, wide spread, increased splash radius, and rounds detonate shortly after being fired.
Carnage - Pearlescent shotgun that fires rockets with extremely high damage and reduced projectile count.
