[KerBlaster Variants]

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 also has an increased chance to drop from the Handsome Sorcerer located in Dragon Keep and as an item of the day in any Torgue Vending Machine from Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage.

Special Weapon Effects

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 & Description

The KerBlaster has damage on par with sniper rifles of equal level and its accuracy is exceptional. Because of its wide explosive radius and predictable child grenade spawns, it is very useful for crowd control and the user can effectively lob grenades to damage enemies behind cover by shooting the wall behind them.

The KerBlaster has high ammunition consumption, slow projectile velocity and magazine size however. 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.

Notes

  • Although it fires rockets, it uses assault rifle ammo, therefore ammo regeneration works just as fast as it would for other assault 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 the "Pull the Pin" challenge.
  • 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. The shield will only absorb the initial shot, not the spawned child grenade.
  • If used with an Amplify Shield, the amp damage will boost the damage of both the rocket and the spawned grenade.
  • Class specific notes:
    • The KerBlaster is not an optimal and also a downright risky weapon for Gaige anarchy builds, since the explosive rounds don't bounce even with Close Enough. And maxed out Anarchy stacks might well lead to Gaige launching a rocket in front of her feet, instantly putting her into Fight For Your Life mode.
    • The Kerblaster is a decent long range weapon for Krieg with the use of Strip the Flesh, Blood Bath and Pain is Power. The negative on critical hits from Pain is Power is not a factor and the bonuses stack.
