Hellshock is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Maliwan. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

I had not thought death had undone so many. – Always incendiary and shock. Projectiles bounce once, starting as the chosen element and switching to the other after the first impact.

Usage & Description

The Hellshock can be used against shielded flesh enemies by having the gun set to incendiary damage and firing at the ground around the enemy. The ricochet shot will deal shock damage to the shield and the weapon can be aimed directly at the enemy when their shield has been depleted.
