About the Grease Trap:

The Grease Trap is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3. This Incendiary Maliwan Pistol has 2 firing modes and you want to use them both. You got  ‘Hot Grease’  which is a spread shot and you got ‘Fire Starter’ that shoots fireballs.

You want to spray ‘Hot Grease’ over your opponents and then switch to the ‘Fire Starter’ to light them up. The Grease acks like a 5-second debuff, when hit by the fireballs it will set off a large explosion that deals splash damage.

A great weapon to use when playing with friends or Zane’s Digi-clone as each player can enable one of the two firing modes and therefore you both benefit from the increased damage.

  • Always Incendiary
  • No Charge Up Time
