For the similarly named assault shotgun in Borderlands, see Sweeper.

Sweeper is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by scavs, and features the double (Jakobs') barrel.

Usage & Description

Sweepers are shotguns using Jakobs' double barrel, increasing the projectile count at the cost of using two rounds of ammunition per shot. They have medium-high damage output, mediocre accuracy, rather high recoil with a fairly broad spread which limits them to medium range at maximum.


  • The Sweeper (Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel) is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
