KerBoom is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Torgue. Boomer is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Boomer located in Outlands Spur.

Special Weapon Effects

Torgue got smarter BOOM! – Consumes 4 ammo per shot. Each shot fires one projectile which has a straight trajectory and explodes on impact. The explosion releases a grenade which slightly homes in on the target and explodes one second later. Greatly lowered fire rate. Unable to deal critical hits.

Usage & Description

The KerBoom has damage on par with sniper rifles of equal level and its accuracy is exceptional. Because of its wide explosive radius and predictable child grenade spawns, it is very useful for crowd control and the user can effectively lob grenades to damage enemies behind cover by shooting the wall behind them.

The KerBoom's high ammunition consumption and slow projectile velocity can make it difficult to hit moving enemies, often requiring the user to lead or even try to predict where the target may seek cover next.


  • This weapon can be used with an absorb shield to refill rocket launcher ammunition. Absorb shields do not negate damage from the child grenade.
    • One can use The Sham to maximize the effectiveness of this strategy.
