Deliverance is a legendary shotgun in Borderlands 2 manufactured by Tediore. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source, but has an increased chance to drop from Tumbaa located in Wildlife Exploitation Preserve.

Special Weapon Effects

Kiki got a shotgun – Reload-thrown weapon continues to fire after thrown and homes in on targets. Low burst damage upon impact.

Usage & Description

Upon reloading, instead of being thrown in an arc like most Tediore guns, the Deliverance will fly in a slow and straight path, ricocheting from surfaces until it detonates after several seconds. If there is an enemy within range of the user, the Deliverance will home in and fire at the target until it detonates on impact. If the first target is killed before the shotgun detonates, the Deliverance will move to another target.

The Deliverance's targeting features are such that the reload-throw need not aim directly at an enemy. If it is thrown away from a target, Deliverance takes longer to travel towards the target, thus firing more shots before reaching it.


  • Deliverance' remaining ammo only affects the final explosion's damage. It will not prolong the flying weapon's lifetime nor affect its secondary ranged attack.
  • The Deliverance makes it much easier to get the "High-Flying Hurler" achievement (kill an aerial enemy with a Tediore reload-throw) due to its homing ability. As such enemies are generally frail, it will very likely kill them outright in a single throw.
  • Due to its unique homing mid-air firing capabilities, the Deliverance can be extremely useful against rakk and surveyors, depending on the element it spawned with.
  • Shots fired by the Deliverance while it is reloading do not cause Zer0 to exit Decepti0n, nor do they receive the bonus from Decepti0n.
  • The shots fired by the Deliverance while it is reloading can receive bonus damage from amp shields.
  • The Deliverance will not target invisible enemies, such as stalkers or Hyperion Infiltrators, and can only attack them directly when they are uncloaked.
  • The Deliverance will attempt to take the shortest path to the nearest enemy, this can cause it to become trapped in corners as it bounces around.
  • The combination of Fast Hands and a high reload speed modifier makes it possible to have multiple instances of Deliverance targeting an enemy.
  • The Deliverance's explosion damage is boosted by grenade damage bonuses, like all Tediore weapons.
