Borderlands 3 Legendary Grenade - Fastball

About the Fastball:

The Fastball is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3. This Tediore Grenade Mod is thrown like a baseball pitch, hard and fast. Therefore, the Fastball almost doesn’t have any drop-off. The grenade will explode on impact and will deal a lot of damage against a single target. However, because the Fastball has a very small blast radius it isn’t great for groups of enemies.


None, Fire, Corrosive, Shock, Cryo, and Radiation.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Forget the curveball Ricky, give him the heater.”

  • Throw a fast traveling grenade with almost no arc.
  • Explodes on impact.
  • High damage, Low Splash Radius.

How to get the Fastball?:

The Fastball has a 15% chance of dropping from Captain Thunk who is located in Konrad’s Hold on Pandora. But this weapon can also be randomly obtained from any suitable loot source as a ‘World Drop’.

  • The Fastball occasionally appears in Maurice’s Black Market.
  • The grenade’s unique throwing arc is meant to resemble a baseball pitch. A “fastball” is a special kind of pitch that travels fast and straight, much like this grenade.
  • The flavor text is a reference to the line James Gammon’s character, Lou Brown, says during the final at-bat in the 1989 film Major League.
  • The Fastball is a returning grenade mod from Borderlands 2.
