Default Sidewinder Striker + The Bee =



Compared to all the other shotguns I have found, this one is by far the strongest. The Sidewinder Striker is the most accurate shotgun I am aware of at least, out of all the ones I have found. Despite its low pellet count it does not matter when every pellet hits a critical hit location. Drops from Old Slappy in Highland Outwash.

The Infinite Accessory is reserved for the Vladof Infinite legendary pistol dropped my Dr Mercy. That is the only thing you will find the Infinite Accessory on.

It would either have to be the critical hit damage bonus, or the above average accuracy it has.

but aren't many of these items with neat little red phrases supposed to have weird and often hidden mechanics about them that can not be identified on the weapon data sheet? maybe you actually have 13 pellets?

Many Red Text weapons have modifiers that are displayed on the guncard, the Red Text part guarantees the modifier being on the weapon.

Some Legendary weapons have awesome Red Text, but the modifier the text provides is not all that amazing, as the intention was primarily being that of a reference.

In all likelyhood, this is a reference red text. Once a modding tool like Willowtree does some research into it, we will come to know exactly what the red text descriptor does.

Hunter Hellquist in the Arid Badlands - Boneyard drops the Bee Shield. Fairly easy provided you have a Shock Weapon. I farmed him by using my legendary Storm Front grenade mod. Which can be obtained from the Splinter Group in Bloodshot Stronghold.

The Storm Front mod is interesting because it is a longbow deployed tesla grenade that MIRVs out 5 sticky tesla grenades, the spacing allows most enemies to easily be hit by multiple teslas, and in an enclosed space absolutely destroys. Even though my version of the mod is level 39, it still rips through most enemies quite quickly and its coverage range is perfect for blanketing an area in persistent damage. And it is a perfect countermeasure against varkids and stalkers.

At the end of the tesla zapping, the grenade and child grenades release a shock explosion. While the grenades are in tesla mode it is safe to be among them, only the ending detonation damages the player. Its red text is "Sometimes Lightning does strike twice."
