Flee the Wave, Dude! – Fires 13 horizontal slow moving projectiles in a wave pattern that ricochets off of surfaces once if it does not hit an enemy.
Usage & Description
Due to the unusual nature of the pellet spread and behaviour, this gun is not much use past extreme close range. It is not good for taking down enemies such as Bandits due to their vertical frames and the horizontal spread of the shot. It is best for taking down Skags, or other wide bodied enemies. It can, with some skill, be used to take Rakk swarms, provided the swarm is grouped closely together, (the same can be said for Bandits). Indoors, the ricocheting pellets can bounce off walls, and hit enemies from behind.
- This gun and its flavor text are a nod to the shotgun T.K's Wave and its Ride the Wave, Dude! featured in Borderlands.
- Dropped from DJ Tanner on Day 13 of the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt. A hotfix on that day increased the damage and makes the shots ricochet more.
