Drop Guide


  • May spawn with any accessory. See Carnage for the details about the effects of elemental accessories on this weapon.
  • May spawn with the Friendly Fire accessory. The weapon's title may appear as an un-prefixed "Fire." Like a normal Friendly Fire Carnage, the weapon will NOT be incendiary.
  • Will only fire in bursts of 6 shots with upgraded ammo capacities.


  • The name and red text is a reference to Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness movie. Ash, the main character, introduces a shotgun as his "boomstick" when traveling back in time, and commonly uses the word "groovy" when acknowledging an upgrade to his armaments.[1]


The Boom Stick effect comes from the BoomStick_barrel3_Carnage barrel. It is based on barrel3_Carnage. It provides a huge boost to accuracy, a light boost to damage, and severely penalizes spread. The Boom Stick always comes with mag4, and is made of BoomStick_Material, which is equivalent to Material_Torgue_2. Please see stat modifiers for an explanation on how to interpret all of these modifiers.
