How To Get Fearmonger Legendary Shotgun

Fearmonger might be one of the best shotguns as of now since most of our best choices were nerfed, thanks to the community outcry. Let’s look at the stats of the version I got “Subsidized Powerhouse Fearmonger”. Do remember that you can get a different version, but things such as the red text and a few other stats are going to be the same.

Fearmonger Shotgun Stats

  • Damage – 761×4
  • Accuracy – 69%
  • Handling – 64%
  • Reload Time – 3.1s
  • Fire Rate – 2.09/s
  • Magazine Size – 20

As mentioned earlier the above stats are for the “Subsidized Powerhouse Fearmonger”, the drop you get might be different.

How To Farm Fearmonger Legendary Shotgun

To farm the Fearmonger Shotgun, you will have to head to the Haunted Captain Traunt and take him down. This weapon is in his loot pool and only available until the event ends. Make sure that you’ve started the event and progressed accordingly.

Captain Haunt is located at Heck Hole, when you give Maurice 25 Hecktoplasms, it will open up a portal to the Heck Hole. This is the area where Captain Haunt will spawn. When you spawn in Heck Hole, you will have to fight your way through the enemies, eventually, you end up at a locked gate. Keep eliminating any enemies that spawn, after some time a keymaster will arrive, you might have to eliminate a few of them. These keymasters will be your key to opening the gate. Behind the gate is where you fight Haunt for obtaining the Legendary Fearmonger Shotgun.

Another way to farm this shotgun would be to kill a lot of Ghosts, when you take down yellow haunted enemies, a haunted ghost spawns. Taking down, the ghosts also have a chance to drop the new Bloody Harvester Loot. Do read the Loot Ghosts Farming Guide for farming them efficiently for best loot.

This is a Hyperion weapon and most of the Hyperion weapons are pretty good at the moment, just hope that this weapon doesn’t catch the limelight and get nerfed. There are memes already going around regarding the nerfs, I am still sad about the Recurring Hex nerf.
