I wasn't counting either. – Shots split twice to create four additional projectiles.
Usage & Description
The Unkempt Harold is only recommended for medium or long-range combat to ensure that all of the bonus projectiles will spawn, and to avoid crippling the character with splash damage.
- The Unkempt Harold is a returning pistol from Borderlands 2.
- The name "Unkempt Harold" is a variation on Dirty Harry.
- Both the name of the gun and the flavor text are references to the 1971 movie Dirty Harry. After the film's first shootout scene, Dirty Harry holds his gun on a bank robber and says: "Now I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots? Or only five?"
- The spread pattern on variants that fire 3 projectiles (3-5-7) is a reference to the .357 S&W Magnum cartridge whose introduction began the "Magnum" era of handgun ammunition. Oddly enough, Harry Callahan's revolver was a Smith and Wesson 29, which is chambered in .44 Magnum, not .357 Magnum.
