Usage & Description
The Slagga is a versatile and effective weapon, with moderate accuracy, but able to unleash a high number of projectiles. With its high Slag chance and huge magazine size, the Slagga is a useful "slag-n-swap" weapon, and allows this process to be repeated several times before reloading. However, its damage output is still formidable in its own right, and weaker enemies can be killed outright without the need to swap.
Due to the increased power of slag in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, the Slagga is arguably one of the most useful weapons for it. Even if the Vault Hunter wielding it is of a far higher level than the gun, the Slagga will still very reliably slag enemies, making the Slagga one of the most consistent guns in the game when it comes to slagging enemies.
- Gaige can make great use of this gun with her Close Enough skill, as any shots that miss may ricochet to a target, which can effectively improve the odds of Slagging one or multiple targets.
- Jimbo & Tector Hodunk, the enemy most likely to drop the Slagga, can be fought by siding with the Zafords at the end of the Clan Wars mission arc. Once sided with the Zafords, players will be unable to fight Mick Zaford, the enemy most likely to drop the legendary Jakobs revolver, Maggie.
- A hotfix on 11/05/13 increased the magazine size and damage of the Slagga and all other bandit submachine guns as part of the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt.
