Description & Analysis Edit
The 1860 cowboy is a formidable pistol, offering High pierce, high DPS, and has ammo with 0 cost. the most important thing however is the phenomenal fire rate for semi auto, delivering on it's "As fast as you can pull the trigger" promise, at least to the average player.
This gun seems to be very adept at dealing with crowds, due to high pierce and fire rate, making it capable of rivaling the other Smokestack pistol, the Trailblazer. Some recommended augs would be Deadly, for more damage, adaptive, to deal with resistanced enemies more effectively, and since Capacity can't be augmented, Piercing for increased CC.
- The 1860 in the name refers to the Colt Army model 1860 and the two are similar in design, despite the Colt 1860 being 6-shot, while the Cowboy is 8.
- This is also most likely a reference to a manufacturer from Borderlands 2, Jakobs, who have an identical in-game tip to the Description of the Cowboy, that being "Fan that hammer, Cowboy!"
- Along with the above statement, All Jakob's weapons are high damage weapons that are semi-auto, but will fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, or 16 rps.
