Torguemada is a unique shotgun manufactured by Torgue. It is obtained from the mission Torgue-o! Torgue-o! located in Serenity's Waste, by destroying the light reactor.

Special Weapon Effects[]

THE HAMMER OF HERETICS! SUBTLE HISTORICAL REFEREEEEEEENCE! – Fires three explosive projectiles in a fixed triangular spread. Each projectile produces a number of smaller, delayed explosions on impact. Consumes 1 ammo per shot.

Usage & Description[]

The Torguemada's fixed spread means that it is heavily inaccurate past point-blank range. However, the delayed explosions caused by each projectile allows the Torguemade to deal significant damage to stationary targets, or create "mine fields" to damage approaching enemies.



  • The weapon name is a reference to Tomás de Torquemada, a prominent figure in the Spanish Inquisition.
  • The flavor text refers to the Hammer of Heretics (or Witches or Evildoers), a famous medieval witch hunter's manual, whose original Latin title is Malleus Maleficarum.
