Scattergun is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs.

Usage & Description

The Scattergun is the middle-of-the-road variant of the Jakobs Shotgun family. It shares the 7 pellet count of the Longrider, but is tied for the highest base damage per projectile with the Stagecoach.

The Scattergun can spawn with three unique barrel accessories:

  • A melee attachment that increases melee damage by 60%, and fire rate by 10%. The fire rate bonus is only noticeable if the gun has an additional barrel, as its fire rate is otherwise capped by the gun's pumping animation (pump action) or limited magazine size (single shot).
  • A barrel protector that increases projectile count by 35%, but worsens accuracy bloom by 15%, accuracy by 10%, and damage by 5%.
  • An additional barrel under the main barrel that increases fire rate by 285%. This allows pump-action variants to be fired twice in extremely quick succession before the shotgun has to be pumped. Should the Scattergun also spawn with a single round magazine, it will instead gain an extra round in the magazine, effectively giving two shots before needing to reload.
