The Browbeater is an Epic Spy Weapon available in Save the World. Each shot fires 10 pellets.


The Browbeater is a pump-action shotgun that boasts debilitatingly high damage, with a notably poor reload speed and magazine size. This powerful shotgun is best used for single-target damage, and can deal so much damage to an extent that not even Smashers are safe from its massive damage blast.

However, the Browbeater's sluggish reload time and small magazine size limits the scope of what the weapon can do, but applied correctly, can be used to annihilate high-priority targets such as Smashers, Blasters and 'Sploders with little effort.

Other Versions


The Browbeater is available as featured loot in Spy Llamas purchased from the Vindertech Store.
