Shock Storm is one of Gaige's Tier Two Little Big Trouble skills, which grants her the ability to cause massive Shock-based explosions whenever she gets a critical kill, or whenever Deathtrap kills an enemy.


Whenever Gaige kills an enemy with a critical hit, or Deathtrap kills an enemy, a blast of electricity radiates out from the enemy killed in every direction, similar to a Shock Barrel exploding.

Each level in this skill improves the damage of the Electrical Storm when it triggers.

Level 1 2 3 4 5
Storm Damage Rank 1 Rank 2 Rank 3 Rank 4 Rank 5
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Storm Damage Rank 6 Rank 7 Rank 8 Rank 9 Rank 10 Rank 11

Can only be leveled past 5 with Catalyst class mods.


  • Shock Storm can trigger Electrical Burn, even when the storms are created by Deathtrap.
  • All Shock Storms - whether triggered by Gaige or by Deathtrap - are treated as if they were activated by Gaige, and get her full array of bonuses.
  • While the initial damage increases with additional levels, the electrocution damage remains the same, simply scaling to the player's level.
