For the similarly named assault shotgun in Borderlands, see Sweeper (Borderlands).

Sweeper is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by scavs, and feature the double (Jakobs) barrel.

Usage & Description

Sweepers are shotguns using the Jakobs double barrel, increasing the projectile count at the cost of using two rounds of ammunition per shot. They have medium-high damage output, mediocre accuracy, rather high recoil with a fairly broad spread which limits them to medium range at maximum.

Notable Variants

  • Sledge's ShottyLegendary shotgun that fires a 2-round burst and has a fixed bayonet accessory.


  • White rarity variants of the Sweeper cannot spawn with an elemental capacitor.
  • The Sweeper is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
