Throughout Pandora, unique pieces of equipment can be found. These items contain special effects beyond that which is stated directly on the item card. Instead, there will be a line of "red flavor text", often a pop-culture reference, signifying the item has unique properties.

About Special Effects

The special effect items found across Pandora will vary in rarity. While these items are unique, the stats (damage, accuracy, reload speed, etc) accompanying the item will vary, the unique special effect will remain the same.

A number of these special effect items are mission rewards, meaning they can only be obtained once per play through. The level of the reward item scales with the mission.

Legendary Items

All Legendary items (aside from the class mods) have a special effect. Apart from a few boss specific drops, all Legendary items are world drops. However, many of these items are associated with a particular boss, who has an increased drop rate for that particular item.

Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty

Introduced in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, there are five special effect items that have two pieces of flavor text. The first red flavor text (representing the beneficial effect) is the same. But then there will be a turquoise flavor text, or the curse (representing the negative effect).

Seraph weapons were also introduced in the first DLC. All Seraph items have a special effect. Seraph items can drop from Hyperius the InvincibleMaster Gee the Invincible from the first DLC, Pyrocaustic Pete the Ultra Invincible from the second DLC, Voracidous the Invincible from the third DLC, or from the Ancient Dragons of Destruction from the fourth DLC. Seraph items can also be purchased with Seraph Crystals from a Seraph Vendor.

Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage

Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage brings a new set of special effect items. Similar to the first DLC, a new vending machine, Torgue Vending Machine, has been introduced. Various Legendary items can be purchased from these vending machines via the item of the day deal. Torgue Tokens are used to make these purchases and are obtained various ways in the second DLC.

All items purchasable from the Torgue vending machine are manufactured by Torgue.
