Usage & Description

Chère-amie restores 2% of all damage inflicted while held including indirect damage from grenades etc like all other Moxxi weapons; however, unlike other Moxxi weapons, Chère-amie also has a Transfusion effect only from damage directly dealt by the gun. The Tranfusion effect heals an additional 15% of the damage dealt by the gun.


  • This weapon's name translates into english as "Dear Friend".
  • The original red text, Je suis enchante, Ou est la bibliotheque?, translates in English to: "I am delighted, Where is the library?" This is likely a reference to "Foux Du Fafa" by Flight of the Conchords.[1] It is (intentionally) grammatically incorrect French. Grammatically correct French would be "Je suis enchanté. Où est la bibliothèque?"[2], which the red flavor text has been changed to from the original incorrect grammar. The French version of the weapon is grammatically correct [3].
  • In Russian localization weapon's name translated as "Французский друг" (French friend) and red text changed to transliterated phrase in broken French, that reference to a quote from novel The Twelve Chairs by the Soviet authors.
  • When the Chère-amie is used by a Siren with skill points invested in Restoration, the team member will be healed along with triggering the Transfusion effect, healing both characters.
