For the similarly named mission reward assault rifle in Borderlands 2, see Evil Smasher.

The Smasher is a unique pistol manufactured by Jakobs. It is awarded as a loyalty reward to players who have save data from Borderlands 2.

Special Effect

Seven times the fun. – Fires seven projectiles in a horizontal spread at the cost of 3 ammo per shot. Each projectile has reduced damage. Cannot spawn with a sight.

Usage & Description

The Smasher functions similarly to the Maggie, being a Jakobs pistol that fires multiple projectiles with a single shot. However, each shot cost 3 ammo, limiting the user to three shots before needing to reload. This, combined with its reduced damage, means the Smasher will easily burn through a starter character's pistol ammunition.

The Smasher has its uses during the initial story quests on Helios Station and Serenity's Waste, where it can function as a pseudo-shotgun by aiming at enemy body masses. However, it is quickly outdamaged by low-level white/green Jakobs pistols later on, and loses its effectiveness as a shotgun substitute when actual shotguns are obtained.


  • The Smasher's name and effect reference Masher revolvers from Borderlands.
  • The Smasher spawns with mostly fixed parts, including a Jakobs grip and barrel and no mounted sights, but may include an accessory.
    • It is possible for this gun to have the "Two Fer" prefix (double accessory), making the gun fire only 11 projectiles at the cost of 6 ammo.
  • The March 24th, 2015 patch changed the skin of this weapon. The barrel and grip were changed from a slightly dark blue to a very dark purple; the body was changed from a light-bluish ivory color to a rusty gold, and a Vault symbol was added near the back of the gun.
