Ogre SMASH! – Increased explosive damage x2- x4

Usage & Description

The Ogre has the potential to be a strong and versatile combat rifle. Its possible specs have a large range they can fall into, and those statistics really change how the gun should be used. The Ogre has a large magazine regardless, but a naturally high-capacity magazine and a high fire rate allow for the "spray & pray" strategy to be particularly effective, due to the fact that the Ogre's mandatory explosive accessory allows for large amounts of splash damage. Since the accuracy for the Ogre can range from that of a Hunter's Shotgun, to rivaling some sniper rifles, the Ogre can be effective at any range based on this statistic. The Ogre shows no weaknesses overall, but it is best used in the fashion of a support machine gun, getting gratuitous amounts of explosive ordinance downrange toward the target's general area.

The Ogre procs on almost every shot, and its accessory also increases damage output. Nothing in Borderlands is immune to explosive damage, so the Ogre is versatile for its wide range of targets. Overall, the Ogre is a spectacular machine gun with no downsides. It is vastly superior to the would-be equivalent non-Ogre Explosive elemental machine gun.


The Ogre effect comes from the acc5_Atlas_Ogre_Explosive accessory, which is based on acc5_Explosive. acc5_Atlas_Ogre_Explosive grants a phenomenal amount of tech, and a great increase in damage. For an explanation on how to interpret the information on the following table, please see the stat modifiers page.
