A cursed weapon

Cursed items are unique weapons, shields, and relics that impose a notable drawback in exchange for their unique benefits. Their itemcards feature a second turquoise-colored flavor text in addition to the red flavor text. Cursed items are exclusive to the Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty DLC and are obtained by completing the optional Message In A Bottle missions.
