Usage & Description

The RokSalt is an above-average shotgun that will usually outperform blue-rarity Bandit shotguns of a similar level. Its fast reload speed is especially notable, giving it the fastest reload of all Bandit shotguns and making it an effective weapon for early game progression.


  • The flavor text is a quote by Sarah Palin.
  • The name refers to rock salt shotgun shells that are loaded with rock salt, replacing the standard lead or steel shot, and are sometimes used by rural civilians to defend their property. The brittle salt is unlikely to cause serious injury at long ranges, but can cause painful stinging injuries and serve as a warning.
  • A hotfix on 10/14/13 as part of the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt gave the RokSalt and all other bandit-made shotguns one more shot in the magazine and a slightly faster reload.
