Protuberance is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Torgue.

Usage & Description

The Protuberance can spawn with high elemental damage modifiers and elemental chance. The weapon shoots in an arc, with its projectile splitting into three mini grenades upon impact, each of which dealing full elemental damage.

The gun is especially useful for an elemental focused Amara, guaranteeing the damage over time effect and increasing damage overall.

If paired with The Transformer shield, the weapon can be used to easily refill shields with the splash damage.


  • The Protuberance is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
