About the Cosmic Crater:

The Cosmic Crater is a Legendary Item in Borderlands 3. This Eridian Artifact creates different elemental puddles when you perform a slam. The elemental on the puddles is random. While it’s a cool effect you are left to RNG to be effective in matching up the right element to the right enemy type.

“Come on and SLAM!”

What is the Cosmic Crater’s Special Effect?

Slams create an elemental puddle that lasts for a few seconds.
