Cryophobia is a legendary rocket launcher in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Maliwan. Cryophobia is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from The Bosun located in Pity's Fall.

Special Weapon Effects

No argument here. – Always cryo, projectiles explode multiple times mid-flight at set-time intervals before hitting their target.

Usage & Description

The Cryophobia is a powerful indirect-fire rocket launcher, best utilized by aiming near the target(s) at an angle parallel to the ground. Because of the projectile's unique behavior, the Cryophobia excels in combat against exceptionally large enemies or against groups of enemies, and generally fares poorly against single targets. It performs even better if it has a Torgue Exhaust which reduces projectile velocity and increases the amount of potential explosions. A Maliwan exhaust would only do the opposite.


  • Cryophobia is the irrational fear of the cold, or cold objects.
  • The Cryophobia is similar to a legendary rocket launchers made by Maliwan: the Rhino in Borderlands, and the Pyrophobia in Borderlands 2.
    • It has a similar flight pattern to that of the Pyrophobia and Rhino.
