So. @Slif_One said we should talk about this gun more, but we were totally derailing a conversation about the weapon you use to get this (it rhymes with roof stick).
The Shocket Launcher is by far my favorite assault rifle I’ve ever found. As a Gaige, I’ve found it’s just a wonderful way of clearing house when I just need a bunch of stuff to die really quickly REALLY far away. It also makes for a wonderful FFYL weapon while not feeling like that’s it’s only use, saving a slot. Sure, the AoE isn’t Norfleet levels, but I always find that if I can’t hit anything with a gun. I’m not gonna do much better with a Rocket Launcher.
I like to head canon the Shocket Launcher (Peak Opener is such a lame name) as a Collaborative effort between Gaige and Torgue.

“duuuude. You like explosions?”
“MY MIDDLE NAME IS EXPLOSIONS!”
“…have you…thought…about a SHOCKET LAUNCHER?”
“BEST. IDEA. EVERRRRR”
