It looks like with the recent patch, Gearbox nerfed the bee significantly but opened up another fun glitch that was previously only in the PC version.

http://forums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=212216

With the proper spawn of the Redundant Fibber (the one where shots split into 9 projectiles), players will find that the ricochet does enough damage to nearly instant-kill most raid bosses. Now that this little hiccup has made it's way to the consoles, anyone upset that they can't farm with The Bee anymore has a viable alternative.

Funny thing is, I never farmed with The Bee, but now that they've broken my favorite shield I'm planning on exploiting this alternative into the dirt. Get it before it's patched, people. ;-)

Bytheby, it's from a quest chain, not a boss. Not posting here for spoiler purposes, but the following link details the quest.

Trick is, when getting the quest reward, if it's the wrong kind, you'll have to dashboard and turn it in again until you get lucky. No worse than farming anything else, really.

You wouldn't happen to have the correct fibber would you? If so, anything you're looking for in return?

I'm actually working on obtaining it now. If I get one, I'll post here, then it's time to learn how to dupe and share the love.

Per the link in the original post, apparently the ricochet from the weapon deals insane damage, but only for that specific version of it. A direct hit on an enemy causes all the ricochet to hit that enemy as well, and the damage multiplies quickly.

The barrel_3 Fibber pistol is glitched when having the Laser_Double accessory

Anyone have this?

Also worth noting that the patch made the Auto Correcting Fibber significantly worse.

Redundant Fibber is the one we're looking for here.
