Special Weapon Effects
THE HAMMER OF HERETICS! SUBTLE HISTORICAL REFEREEEEEEENCE! – Fires three explosive projectiles in a fixed triangular spread. Each projectile produces a number of smaller, delayed explosions on impact.
Usage & Description
Similarly to Borderlands 2's Landscaper, the Torguemada's fixed spread means that it is heavily inaccurate past point blank range. However, the delayed explosions caused by each projectile allows the Torguemade to deal significant damage to stationary targets, or create "mine fields" to damage approaching enemies.
- The name of this weapon is likely a reference to Tomas de Torquemada, a prominent figure in the Spanish Inquisition.
- The flavor text refers to the Hammer of Heretics (or Witches or Evildoers), a famous medieval witch hunter's manual, whose original Latin title is Malleus Maleficarum.
