Most legendary items work fine on Level 40, however, when you are climbing those additional Chaos Levels, you want to have gear that destroys. Therefore, you want to farm these Shotguns in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
The Swordsplosion is manufactured by Torgue and is part of the base game. This Shotgun fires blades that explode on impact which deal splash damage.
The Swordsplosion’s Sticky Mode shoots blades that increase their damage by 30% for every stuck blade. Also, every enemy will be impaled by a giant sword that deals 10 times the splash damage to nearby enemies.
Its unique damage type creates interesting builds as you can pair it with a few Hilt Mods, however, a cool interaction is with the Legendary Universal Soldier Amulet as it gives you the ability to regenerate ammo.
An optimized build will make the Stab-O-Matic one of the most powerful weapons in the game.
The Stab-O-Matic unlocks after Run 1 of Molten Mirrors DLC. After that you can get it as a random World Drop or from the Wheel of Fate.
Reign of Arrows
The Reign of Arrows is manufactured by Blackpowder and is part of the base game. This Shotgun highlights an area and when you shoot, it will fire one arrow toward that highlighted location and then the fun starts. For the next few seconds, it will rain arrows from the sky.
The Reign of Arrows will eat through your ammo but it is a very powerful shotgun.
You can obtain the Reign of Arrows randomly as a World Drop or from the Chaos Bunnies. However, you can also farm (mini)Bosses inside the Chaos Chamber.
The Red Hellion is manufactured by Hyperius and is part of the base game. This Shotgun will shoot more pellets the faster you can go.
You don’t have to be running to increase the pellet count. You just simply increase your passive Movement Speed Stat. The higher you can boost that number the more projectiles you will be able to shoot. That is where the power of this weapon lies.
When you manage to significantly increase your movement speed, the Red Hellion is a force to be reckoned with.
You can obtain the Red Hellion randomly as a World Drop or from the Chaos Bunnies. However, you can also farm the Obsidian Wyvern or the Eros Wyvern.
- The Torgue Bawdyrocker Shotgun is a powerful purple weapon.
- Crossblade is that A-tier shotgun. Not the very best but still a fun weapon to play with.
Great weapons will carry you so much. What you really want to do is create an awesome character build because the synergies between the items and your skill trees are what push you to the next level.
