Min Min Lighter is a legendary laser in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Tediore. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Approached but never identified. – Always shock. Shoots slow lightning balls that bounce off objects and deal damage to all enemies that near it in a great radius. Reduced fire rate. Consumes 5 ammo per shot.


  • The shock orbs fired by the Min Min Lighter stray very far from the crosshairs, making the weapon unreliable beyond close range even as an area-of-effect weapon.
  • The radial damage dealt by a still-traveling shock orb is equivalent to about 3.5x the listed damage of the weapon, but this inexplicably varies by 5-10% at different levels.
    • Shock explosions created by shooting the shock orb deal about 15x the weapon's listed damage in an area of affect about as large across as the radius of an un-boosted Slam attack. The exact damage increase also fluctuates inexplicably between level brackets but is generally between 15x and 16x.
  • Its low rate of fire can be circumvented by swapping to a different weapon and switching back before the animation finishes. Doing this can significantly increase the damage output.
  • Shooting the lightning ball with any other weapon results in a shock explosion.


  • The name and effect of the Lighter are a reference to the Min Min lights, an unexplained phenomenon reported in eastern Australia. The phenomenon was a strange light that would "follow" tourist's cars around.
