The Captain Blade's Midnight Star is a unique cursed MIRV grenade manufactured by Torgue. Captain Blade's Midnight Star is obtained from the mission Message In A Bottle (Magnys Lighthouse).

Special Grenade Effects

Hangin' around with you is no picnic. – Abnormally high damage for a MIRV grenade.

Curse of the Cackling Designer! – Child grenades spawned are ejected towards the wielder instead of a regular MIRV spread.

Usage & Description

Upon detonation, the child grenades launch out in a tight delta pattern back in the direction of the character that threw the grenade. At face value this effect has limited usefulness, although for characters that are frequently positioned in the midst of a conflict it can be a handy means of peppering the near vicinity with an area damage source, especially when the character is low on life enough to gamble on a Second Wind.

Axton makes this apply very well with Do or Die, allowing him to throw grenades close to him if surrounded by enemies, enabling him to destroy his attackers and recover with a second wind without fear.


  • The mod's name and flavor text are from the movie Silverado. "Hangin' around with you is no picnic," is a character quote, while the Midnight Star is the name of a saloon and nickname of a character within the movie.
