Longrider is the title of a group of common shotguns manufactured exclusively by Jakobs. These shotguns always have the Hyperion barrel. The Longrider is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

Longriders are single-barreled shotguns characterized by relatively high accuracy and tight spread for shotguns and low magazine sizes and pellet count. Longriders can be difficult to use and require precision because one spends most of the time reloading (wich also makes them bad for second winds).


  • The skill Smaller, Lighter, Faster or the Punk class mod, can render the Longrider unusable due to the fact that the magazine (sometimes consisting of a single round) will be reduced to zero.
  • The Longrider's high accuracy makes them ideal for Zer0, who can increase the accuracy further and add critical hit damage to make a lethal medium range weapon.
  • It is also very useful for quickly increasing anarchy stacks with Gaige. and preventing the accidental reloading and loosing them (when it has a single round)
  • As it is with many Jakobs shotguns, Salvador's skill Money Shot will always be active.
  • The Longrider is ideal for Krieg's skill Empty the Rage due to the fact that the weapon is best used in close range, where the magazine will be depleted quickly or immediately, giving him the additional melee damage.

Notable variants

  • Striker - Legendary shotgun which carries a -50% additive critical bonus along with a +15% multiplicative critical hit bonus.
