Snakes On A Gun
The Rattler was one of Emmitt Calx's worst, and last, ideas. This is a Winchester shotgun with an extremely venomous snake wrapped around it, adding a poisonous blast to each volley. Requires extreme dexterity to reload.

Rattler is a gun that simultaneously fires a shotgun blast and a beam that poisons enemies.


  • Synergy.png Not So Sawed-Off - If the player also has Buzzkill, Buzzkill's saw blades move slower and are linked with lightning.
  • Synergy.png Twin Snakes - If the player also has Snakemaker, all of the Rattler's shots become beams that have a chance to poison and the Snakemaker's shots gain a homing effect.
  • Despite visually appearing to be and firing like a shotgun, the Rattler is not a part of the SHOTGUN gun class and as such does not benefit from the Synergy.png Shotgun Affinity synergy.


  • The pickup line, "Snakes on A Gun," is a reference to the film Snakes on a Plane.
  • The Twin Snakes synergy is a reference to the Metal Gear Solid series.
  • The gun's name is likely a reference to the poem "The Rattler," in which a man is confronted by a snake similar in color to the one wrapped around the gun.
