The KerBlaster is a Legendary Assault Rifle manufactured by Torgue. KerBlaster is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Midge-Mong located in Southern Shelf. It is also available at any Torgue Vending Machine in DLC2.
Special Weapon EffectsEdit
Torgue got more BOOM! – Consumes 4 ammo per shot. Each shot fires one projectile which has a straight trajectory and explodes on impact. The explosion releases a grenade which also explodes one second later. This weapon cannot score critical hits.
Usage & DescriptionEdit
The KerBlaster has a lot going for it. Its damage is on par with Sniper Rifles of equivalent level and its accuracy is exceptional for an Assault Rifle in Borderlands 2. However, the KerBlaster's ammunition consumption, slower projectile velocity, magazine size, and special effect dictate that it should be used differently from its non-legendary counterparts. The slowed projectile velocity can make it difficult to hit moving enemies, often requiring the user to lead or even try to predict where the target may seek cover next. That being said, the KerBlaster excels doing damage to enemies wielding a shield. The user can effectively lob grenades to damage enemies behind cover by shooting the wall behind them.
- Although it fires rockets, It uses assault rifle ammo, therefore ammo regeneration works just as fast as it would for other combat rifles.
- Unlike other Torgue weapons, firing in close proximity to friends and foes will result in damage from both the projectile itself, and the following grenade.
- The KerBlaster's kills count towards grenade-based Badass Challenges, specifically "Pull the Pin."
- If used with an Absorb Shield, when shot at the ground the KerBlaster can replenish rocket launcher ammo, making extended use of rocket launchers much more useful.
