Damned Cowboy is a unique assault rifle manufactured by Jakobs. The Damned Cowboy can only be obtained as a rare drop from Bloodtail in Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt.

Special Weapon Effects

Speak Softly. Carry This. –  Sports extremely high damage output and accuracy at the sacrifice of fire rate.

Usage & Description

Like its revolver counterpart the Rex, the Damned Cowboy should be used more like a medium range sniper rifle than a regular assault rifle.

Although it sports the distinctive Jakobs text "Fires as fast as you can pull the trigger", players with modded controllers or mouse macros won't be able to exploit the high damage of this rifle, as the fire rate is capped on this weapon.


  • The standard prefix name for this weapon is "Sir Hammerlock's", but such a prefix will be replaced if the weapon spawns with any accessory.


  • The red text is a reference to U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt's foreign policy ("speak softly and carry a big stick").
  • The weapon's name is a reference to one of Roosevelt's contemporaries, U.S. Senator Mark Hanna (R-OH), expressing his displeasure that a man with policies like Roosevelt's had won the presidency.
