Special Weapon Effects

We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Café. – Doubles Fight For Your Life duration. When crippled, increases damage by 25%, and accuracy and handling by 150%.

Usage & Description

The Double Downer gives a substantial buff to the user's Fight For Your Life capabilities. With all its perks, it can be very difficult for the user to actually die, making this shield a powerful asset to players that find trouble clearing certain areas or who keep getting downed by powerful opponents.


  • As the Double Downer is a quest-only reward, farming it is only possible by creating a back-up of the save file before the quest is turned in or by starting the DLC with a new character save file.


  • The flavor text is a line from the song Mephisto's Café from the 2007 album Somewhere in the Between by American ska punk band Streetlight Manifesto.
