Borderlands 3 Face-Puncher Legendary Guide

So, you’ve decided that the best way to deal with turbulent times is to punch your way through them. Well, we definitely don’t blame you, because it can often be the most direct way to get through to someone. Take it from the best. Or, well, in this case, Hyperion. The Borderlands 3 Face-Puncher is a Legendary shotgun that does basically one thing and one thing only – it deals melee damage scaling off your melee damage values. Yeah. That’s it. A gun for punching. If you’re someone with a heavy melee build, or even just someone who prefers to get up close and personal, then this is the gun for you. Its special weapon effect which affects its damage done as described above is called “Man your own jackhammer”. Unfortunately, there’s one downside to the Face-Puncher: it cannot score crits on enemies.

Now, if you’re looking to pick up the Face-Puncher, then you’re going to want to make a beeline straight for the Handsome Jackie boss who’s gonna be kicking around Promethea. Specifically, she’s in Skywell-27. As you may have already gathered, while the Face-puncher can be picked up from pretty much any loot source, it has a higher chance to drop from Handsome Jackie so our recommendation would actually be to keep farming that boss until it drops from her. There’s no other way around this short of kicking down every door in town and praying that this shotgun lies behind it, so, you know. We would get farming as soon as possible. 

Now that you’ve had some assistance from us with regards to getting the Borderlands 3 Face-Puncher legendary, you should soon find yourself to be the proud owner of a new shotgun that is probably the most effective thing to bludgeon someone to death with since the old-fashioned rock. We reckon Cain and Abel would have had a field day with this. Need a hand with anything else in Borderlands 3? Come check out the variety of tips and tricks that we’ve put together for Vault Hunters just like yourself in our dedicated guides hub for the game.
