Bugs

  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Icon ps4.png The harpoon gun lacks the keywords and attachment slot for skins.[verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Icon ps4.png A harpoon gun modified with the flechettes attachment is not considered a shotgun, although it fires 7 projectiles.[verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Icon ps4.png A Two-shot Legendary harpoon gun modified with the flechettes attachment will still fire only 7 projectiles.[1][verification needed]

Behind the scenes

A version of the harpoon gun was created for Nuclear Winter, however it was never added to the game mode.
