Notes

  • An unobtainable Broadsider with a boxing glove stuffed into the barrel is located inside an inaccessible room in the Rusty Pick.
  • No powder is loaded into the Broadsider's barrel when reloading.
  • Despite the multi shot canister mod increasing ammo capacity to 3 cannonballs, users wielding the Broadsider will always insert a single projectile into the weapon while reloading.
  • With the multi shot canister mod applied on a Quad legendary Broadsider, its ammo capacity will only reach a maximum of 6 cannonballs.

Behind the scenes

  • The term "broadsiding," or "firing broadside," is a naval term, referring to firing all the cannons (in jargon referred to as 'guns') that can be pointed to one side of a ship, all at the same time.
  • The Broadsider's cannon barrel has two engravings; "1820", which is likely the year it was cast, and a royal cypher.
