Special Weapon Effects
In this universe, there is only one absolute. – Always cryo element. Greatly reduced magazine size, increased damage and slightly higher elemental effect chance.
Usage & Description
The Absolute Zero excels at freezing targets at close range. It has a short-medium effective range, high freeze chance, and high rate of fire, and a small magazine size.
- Wilhelm's skill Laser Focus increases laser magazine size by flat values, not percentages, so at 5/5 and 10/5 it doubles and triples the Absolute Zero's magazine size, respectively.
- Claptrap has explosive skills (Load 'n Splode, Start with a Bang) that synergize directly with frequent reloads, which in turn synergize with the fact that Frozen enemies take increased explosive damage, making the Absolute Zero a potentially devastating weapon in the hands of an explosive-oriented Claptrap player.
- Nisha has skills (Quick Shot, Hell's Comin' With Me) that grant significant bonuses upon reloading.
- The flavor text is a reference to Mr. Freeze, a classic super-villain appearing primarily in Batman comic books published by DC Comics. The full quote is "In this universe, there is only one absolute: Everything freezes."
