Usage & Description

While Tinderbox is good at setting enemies on fire, its low rate of fire and parabolic projectile arc make it ineffective in combat.



  • A tinderbox is a small container containing flint, firesteel, and tinder (typically charcloth, but possibly a small quantity of dry, finely-divided fibrous matter such as straw), used together to help kindle a fire.
  • The Tinderbox was dropped by Midge-Mong on Day 7 of the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt. A hotfix on that day increased the gun's magazine size.
