  • Despite the in-game description of this skill, Thoughtlock does not lengthen the cooldown of Maya's Phaselock by 3 seconds.
  • Thoughtlocking the same enemy within 25 seconds will reduce the duration of Thoughtlock to 2/3 of the maximum duration.
  • Thoughtlocked surveyors can heal Vault Hunters and loaders.
  • Thoughtlocked Enraged Goliaths will still attack both sides.
  • Enemies who cannot be Phaselocked also cannot be Thoughtlocked.
  • Thoughtlock increases the base duration of Phaselock to 9 seconds. Points in Suspension will increase this further, up to 14.5 seconds.
  • Any ability that would trigger normally with Phaselock still works with Thoughtlock (Converge, Helios, Elated, Wreck, Chain Reaction, and Sweet Release).
  • Using Thoughtlock on a Varkid pod will result in the pod not opening until it receives damage.
  • Thoughtlocked enemies appear as allies and can't be harmed by other Vault Hunters.
  • A status effect inflicted on Maya will stop doing damage if the enemy who created the status effect comes under the control of Thoughtlock.
