About the Contained Blast:
The Contained Blast is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Torgue Semi-Auto Assault Rifle shoots both Gyrojets that explode on impact and sticky bombs that explode after a short delay. This weapon isn’t very accurate at long ranges, therefore, it’s best used for close and medium range. This is a great weapon for Moze but also works well with other Vault Hunters.
Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.
Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-second duration.
Shock damage is strong against Shields and causes targets to be electrocuted. Electrocution deals very high damage over a 3-second duration.
Cryo damage slows enemies and eventually freezing them. Cryo efficiency is the percentage of damage dealt that is applied as Cryo, at 100% efficiency, enemies will freeze at 20% health. Frozen enemies are unable to move and take 3x Melee damage.
Radiation damage can cause targets to become Irradiated. Irradiated enemies deal Aura Damage to nearby enemies for 8 seconds. If an Irradiated enemy dies, they explode, Irradiating any enemies damaged by the explosion.
