About the Critical Thug:

The Critical Thug is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Torgue Shotgun is great for mobbing as critical hits will ricochet to nearby enemies. The projectiles are affected by gravity and therefore have a small arc to them. While it’s a Torgue weapon it doesn’t have the sticky mode.

Special Weapon Effect:

“No shooting at parties!”

  • Critical Hit Damage ricochets to every nearby enemy.
  • 200% Critical Hit Damage


Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.
