About the Destructo Spinner:
The Destructo Spinner is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. The projectiles of this Maliwan SMG spin in circles and will alternate between the 2 elemental types as you continue to fire. The projectile speed is a bit slow and therefore the Destructo Spinner is best used for close to medium range combat. You can set the required elemental splash damage type by switching the alternate firing mode.
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.
