About the Handsome Jackhammer:

The Handsome Jackhammer is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This SMG is a hybrid between a Hyperion and a Tediore weapon. When you aim down sight it will have a shield and when you reload the Handsome Jackhammer, you will throw it out like a Tediore weapon. When thrown the Handsome Jackhammer will bounce 5 times and deal damage to nearby targets.
