The Jakobs corporation has held to certain values through the years. Family. Honor. Always aiming for the head. When you need to kill your enemies with a single shot, you buy Jakobs: the corporation’s founder, Montgomery Jakobs, always believed in damage above all else. Accuracy? Pah. Recoil reduction? Don’t make me laugh. Elemental effects? Just a bunch of silly fireworks and nonsense. No, the Jakobs corporation believes that there’s nothing better in the world than a big-ass bullet that can tear a man’s head clean off. To this end, Jakobs weapons generally have higher damage than any other manufacturer. Sure, you may have to pull the trigger with every shot, and sure, the recoil may be hellish, but so what? Once you’ve blown a robot in half with a breech-loaded Jakobs shotgun, you’ll know exactly what Montgomery Jakobs was talking about.
 Assault Rifles
Jakobs assault rifles work like carbines, great for mid to long-range headshot fishing. Some Jakobs ARs arrive equipped to fire more than one shot per trigger pull, making them approach the functionality of a sniping shotgun…

Jakobs, as a company, eschews modern tech and embraces technology as it was in the expanding frontier. It still incorporates wood into its gun components—Jakobs is the only manufacturer to do so on relatively desolate Pandora—and no weapon possesses automatic fire. Instead, any Jakobs weapon that isn’t a bolt-action sniper rifle can be fired as quickly as you can squeeze the trigger through semi-auto double action. Their standard pistols are a bit like Dahl’s without burst fire… competent, but nothing that will make you change your religion. Their revolver line, on the other hand, provides maybe the best platform for their high-impact design ethos.
Jakobs shotguns are breech-loaded, so they can be discharged as fast as you can pull the trigger, and they have light ammo loads. You’ll go through the barrels very quickly and reload often, but the buckshot flies faster and hits harder than with other shotguns. You won’t ever find a Jakobs shotgun with elemental powers, so if you want to maximize your return, Slag the enemy with a skill or another weapon first.
 Sniper Rifles
Most Jakobs weapons fire as fast as you can operate the device — rapidly squeezing the double-action trigger of a Jakobs AR carbine, or slap-firing by fanning the hammer of a Jakobs revolver. Many of their sniper rifles break from this tradition by featuring bolt action chambering, which forces a small break between shots. The focus of Jakobs sniper rifles is sheer bullet speed and power. And, not all Jakobs sniper rifles are strictly bolt action… you will find semi-automatic variants, as well, which are just about the best non-elemental sniping tools a Vault Hunter could hope for.
