About the Dowsing Rod:
The Dowsing Rod is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This is a high Fire Rate Full-Auto Vladof Assault Rifle with a grenade under-barrel attachment. It has a higher base damage than the purple Vladof Assault Rifles. The grenade launcher shoots 3 grenades at once and if you have a x2 prefix of the Dowsing Rod, it will shoot 6 grenades with the ALT-Fire. This weapon is really good in the hands of Moze.
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.
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.

The Dowsing Rod is a decent weapon it performs better than purple Vladof Assault Rifles. When you play as Moze this AR can wreck!
