The Boxxy Gunn is a unique SMG manufactured by Tediore. It is a possible reward for completing Digistructed Madness: Round 2 and Digistructed Madness: The Badass Round in The Holodome Onslaught DLC. It can also be dropped by Guardian Pondors and Lost Legion Ascended Powersuits.

Special Weapon Effects

It's totally a flamethrower. – Always shock element. Projectiles fired ricochet twice. Decreased projectile speed. When reloaded, it may explode in the user's hands, causing shock damage. The chance to explode in the user's hands and the self-harm caused increases the more bullets remain in the magazine.

Usage & Description

As a shock element weapon with respectable damage, the Boxxy Gunn is very effective against enemies with large shields. However, as a Tediore weapon where reloading the gun with only a few bullets missing is often a viable method of causing significant damage in a single burst, its potential to damage or even kill its user can make it an unappealing choice.

The Boxxy Gunn's damage can be boosted by an Athena specced into her Ceraunic Storm skill tree, with Maelstrom potentially adding significant additional shock damage to the Boxxy Gunn's base damage.


  • The Boxxy Gunn is one of the rare guns that in addition to its red flavor text, features a unique line of white text on its item card — "Unstable reloads". This was expanded upon in a later update, which changed the text to read "Inherently unstable ammunition. Reload carefully!"
  • The Boxxy Gunn was first shown in a promotional image for The Holodome Onslaught, along with the Cry Baby, Plunkett, Party Line, T4s-R and Berrigan.
