Borderlands Wiki

Teeth of Terramorphous is a unique aftermarket shotgun in Borderlands 2 manufactured by bandits. It can be obtained as a rare drop from Terramorphous the Invincible in Terramorphous Peak, and from the Skeleton Kings in A Wonderlands One-Shot Adventure standalone.

Special Weapon Effects[]

His teeth made them flee in shame... – Always incendiary. Fires two horizontal rows of 6 rounds each. The two rows rise then collapse into each other (much like a mouth opening and closing) after a specific distance. When the rows collapse they cause six small incendiary explosions and disappear.

Usage & Description[]

Due to its wide, predictable spread, the Teeth of Terramorphous is well-suited for dealing with large groups of enemies such as rakk or other small fast-moving enemies, such as varkids.

Its limited range makes long-distance combat impossible, but due to its devastating power, along with its mandatory incendiary capacitor, it can make short work of fleshy enemies at close-to-mid range.


  • A hotfix on 10/14/13 as part of the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt gave the Teeth of Terramorphous and all other Bandit shotguns one more shot in the magazine and a slightly faster reload.
  • The Teeth of Terramorphous was dropped by Motor Momma on the first day of week 4 during the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt. A hotfix on that day increased the explosive radius and damage.
  • The Teeth of Terramorphous's damage is boosted by grenade damage bonuses.


His teeth made them flee in shame,
His breath was of fire.
His hide turned the mightiest tame;
His blood could inspire.
  • The Teeth of Terramorphous's skin has the toothed shark mouth painting that is used on green rarity bandit weapons.
