So I just recently hit level 50 and am possibly looking at having Jakobs shotguns as my main damage dealer, exclusively using a Rustler’s Moonface. A level 44 Coach Gun got me through to the end of the game, and I’m eager to see how a 50 Moonface with desired parts ends up doing, I’m positive it will wreck face. This is how the spec turned out at the end of our TVHM playthrough, and with some early feedback here is the current version of it:
Looking at Snapshot vs Quick Shot, the 30% gun bonus is awesome while hip firing and when in Showdown, the accuracy from Snapshot seems to be negligible compared to the hipfire damage boost.

Our build shotgun
Unique Jakobs Quad that fires in a Smiley Face, NE and Explosive DMG, consumes 1 Ammo Per Shot.
Alternate Suggested Gear
Legendary Jakobs shotgun returning from Borderlands 2. Amazing fire rate and damage output make this a good medium range shotgun substitute.
Coach Gun or other desired Jakobs shotgun
Legendary Pistol returning from Borderlands 2
Zarpedon’s Cyber Eagle
Unique Shock Jakobs Pistol found from the Secret Chamber
Alternate Desired Jakobs/Hyperion Pistol
Personal Preference, etc.
Legendary Sniper returning from Borderlands 2. Great synergy with the Riflewoman tree and amazing damage output with 5/5 Tombstone.
I’ve been using Turtle Shields to beef up the shield capacity and and a cryo transfusion for healing. Any more suggestions are welcome.
