Venom is the title of a group of submachine guns and are manufactured exclusively by Maliwan. They use the corrosive-element Maliwan barrel. The Venom (SMG) is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
Usage & Description
The Venom is part of a sub-group of SMGs that only can spawn with a fixed-element Maliwan barrel. They feature the higher-than-usual elemental damage/second and element chance granted by the Maliwan barrel.
Despite the low rarity designation of these weapons, their high elemental chance and DoT can make them excellent choices for combat until a more suitable or less common (e.g. Legendary or Unique) weapon is obtained.
