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

Usage & Description

The Protuberance is an elemental grenade launcher. It fires an explosive round in an arc, which MIRVs into three more explosions upon impact. This makes it excellent for crowd control and dealing huge amounts of elemental damage. Care must be taken as the splash damage can easily kill the player if used at close range.

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


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