Default The Best Unkempt Harold Variant?

Recently, item-hunting has blessed me with 2 Unkempt Harolds: One Double Penetrating, with a Scope, and one Stiff, with a stock and a target scope. This has led me to ask: Which one is the better option? The Double Penetrating does much more damage through number of projectiles, but fires slower, consumes much more ammo, and tends to reload much more often.

Which is the generally-considered "better" of the two? I ask because one is likely going to my friend Kid.

I mostly prefer the single, which makes me the weird guy everyone laughs at.

Seriously though, I use the stiff unkempt with the hyperion scope, its very handy with my assassin.

I also have a double which I use only with my psycho, but i still carry a single with him as well.

DPS-wise the DPUH is the best.

I have all variants of the Harold and think the DP over the stiff is a sure bet. If you like the aspects of a higher FR Harold with a little better accuracy, go farm yourself an Intense Unkempt Harold. My single most favorite gun in the game. In the hands of a gunzerker with sheriffs badge it's a multipellet machine gun and I prefer it over the DP. With the slower projectile velocity and certain playstyles, it might behoove you to be able to shower the sky with more bullets to get them to hit more

it throws so many rounds all over and is less accurate is why I prefer the single.

The DPUH may list more on card, but more often then not its lesser accuracy and recoil put a lot of the extra rounds not where I want them with my assassin.

My psycho it doesnt really matter so much so I DPUH it up.

Bahroo is completely and irrefutably correct mathematically.

It does come down to taste, though.

Double Penetrating for raids.

Intense for general play.

I agree with you. I feel as though the spread on the dpuh causes it to miss more than I'd like. I use a crammed variant.
