Special Weapon Effects
I'm not always that dangerously homicidal… – Consumes 2 ammo per shot, higher damage output in exchange for slower rate of fire. Each shot fired is randomly selected to be Corrosive, Incendiary or Shock.
Usage & Description
MINAC's Atonement is interesting for a Maliwan weapon, due to it being able to kill enemies from sheer damage alone, compared to standard Maliwan weapons that tend to rely on heavy damage over time. Due to it switching elements with every shot, MINAC's Atonement can be used on a wide range of enemies without being heavily resisted, and will still deal reliable damage over time.
Additionally, MINAC's Atonement has a 150% continuous damage bonus, which encourages emptying the magazine to amplify the weapon's already high damage. This weapon also benefits greatly from fire rate bonuses, for the same reason.
- The weapon's damage-over-time is not listed on its weapon card.
- Athena, if heavily invested in the Ceraunic Storm tree, can quickly build stacks of Maelstrom with this weapon. Upon getting kills, Athena's Unrelenting skill gives her great rate of fire with high Maelstrom.
- Claptrap can build stacks of Maniacal Laughter very quickly when using this gun.
- This weapon is a call back to part of the final boss in the Claptrap's New Robot Revolution DLC for Borderlands. The boss it is in reference to is Mega Interplantery Ninga Assassain Claptrap a.k.a. M.I.N.A.C.
