The Frostfire is a unique submachine gun manufactured by Maliwan. Frostfire is obtained from the mission The Bestest Story Ever Told located in Concordia. It is only available in Normal mode and UVHM.

Special Weapon Effects

It had to perish twice. – Fires two projectiles at the cost of two ammunition. One projectile inflicts cryo elemental damage, and the other inflicts incendiary damage. May randomly apply a freeze effect on the user.


Frostfire's Dual element is useful against most enemies without a shield, which requires another shock weapon in order to use it effectively. Other than that, no two enemies resist these two elements at the same time, even accounting for elemental enemies, making it useful for virtually any purpose.


  • This weapon is very similar to the Chulainn, a Borderlands 2 SMG that has two elements combined (Slag and Shock). Both weapons can apply an elemental effect on the user when wielded and both weapons share a similar raven design on the magazine.


  • The weapon name and the flavor text is a reference to the Robert Frost poem "Fire And Ice"
  • A shield with cyro immunity does not negate the gun's freezing effect.
