Scourge is a legendary rocket launcher in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Torgue. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Or am I? – Fires a single large projectile with a number of additional, smaller projectiles in front of it that start swirling around the original as it travels. Smaller projectiles will trace the nearest enemy target. All projectiles explode, one at a time, after a certain distance.

Usage & Description

The Scourge's projectile behaviour makes it a perfect weapon for Zane. If the initial rocket passes through his Barrier - all of the child rockets will retain the damage amp. Moreover, his Playing Dirty skill can spawn double the amount of child projectiles and cause massive damage. Switching to an Unforgiven after the shot is made will result in even more damage; as some rockets will hit from above and score a critical hit, the pistol's massive buff to critical damage is applied to the rockets.

Zane's Praemunitus or Moze's The Iron Bank passives as well as artifacts that grant increased magazine size, allows the Scourge's mechanics to be exploited. If the launcher will have 5 rockets in the magazine and 4 are consumed with every shot - it is still possible to make two shots from the Scourge before having to reload the weapon.


  • Its special effect is similar to the Occultist pistol, another weapon by Torgue.
