Usage & Description

The Dowsing Rod is a fairly average Vladof assault rifle on its own. What sets it apart is its unique ability to shoot three grenades for the cost of one grenade ammo. Moze can make the best use of the Dowsing Rod, as she has many skills in the Demolition Woman tree to enhance the lethality of the grenades, and her ammo generation skills such as Forge and Redistribution can allow her to fire grenades for much longer than normal.

  • A Dowsing rod is a type of divination tool used to locate water, minerals, or other valuables.
  • The flavor text is a reference to a scene in the 1998 film The Big Lebowski where Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski is mistakenly attacked by debt collectors and has his head submerged in a toilet.
