Borderlands 3 – How to get Nimble Jack – Handsome Jack Easter Egg

Nimble Jack – Weapon Description

Nimble Jack is a shotgun of the Legendary or Orange rarity in Borderlands 3. The look of this shotgun kind of resembles the One Pump Chump and it makes sense as this one, like the One Pump Chump, is also from Jakobs and has only 1 bullet in the magazine. It is also an easter egg in the game with straight reference to Handsome Jack.

So what is so special about the Nimble Jack? Well, if you fire this shotgun while standing or moving then it is just a normal shotgun. But if you jump and shoot then the reticle or the crosshair of this weapon shrinks to a very small size and the Nimble Jack starts almost acting like a sniper rifle.

Lets take a look at the description of the Nimble Jack. The one I have shown here is the Iron-Willed Nimble Jack (Level 50):

  • Manufacturer : Jakobs
  • Damage : 464×9
  • Accuracy : 50%
  • Handling : 61%
  • Reload Time : 1.5s
  • Fire Rate : 1.61/s
  • Magazine Size : 1
  • Red Text : Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump and k#ll lunatics.

Nimble Jack Location – Where to find it

In order to get the Nimble Jack to drop you will have to farm an enemy called Handsome Jackie.

You can find Handsome Jacking at Skywell-27 on Promethea. Now, the problem is that the location of Handsome Jackie is at the bottom of the map which means you will have to travel a very long distance. Here is the exact location of Handsome Jackie:

You will have to take the same route that you took for reaching the boss of Skywell-27, Katagawa Ball. Once you reach the location of Handsome Jackie, the farming will become easy as there is a spawn point very close to the location. So you can easily to quit and respawn. Though, neither the spawn is guaranteed nor is the drop. So you have to farm a couple of times. Of course, being on TVHM and Mayhem 2-3 difficulty would be of great help.

In case if you face any trouble reaching the location of Handsome Jackie, here is a video that will guide you better:
