For the legendary pistol in Borderlands 2, see Thunderball Fists.

Thunderball Fists is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 that is manufactured by Maliwan. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Power Troopers located in Atlas HQ on Promethea.

Special Weapon Effects

I can have such a thing? – Always shock. On impact, projectiles form an orb which rises up and then falls downward, shocking anything in the vicinity.

Usage & Description

The Thunderball Fists can be useful in eliminating targets with a high shield capacity, as the high shock damage per round and extra damage from the orbs produced can tear through most shields.


  • Both the initial impact and the secondary orb deal damage.


  • The flavor text and name of the weapon are a reference to the 1975 movie The Super Inframan.
  • The Thunderball Fists is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2.
