About the Kickcharger:

The Kickcharger is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Vladof Rocket Launcher has the same model as the Backburner but shoots a focused laser beam like the ION Cannon. While the Kickcharger can shoot through multiple enemies, you do need to charge it up before you can fire. However, at the cost of 1 ammo per shot, you are getting top-tier damage because if you charge it up for 4 seconds you deal 4x the damage. You can also perform a  slide to fully charge the Kickcharger to maximum capacity.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Let it Slide”

  • Laser Projectile pierces through enemies
  • The Kickcharger is fully charged up after 4 seconds and then deals 400% damage.
  • The Kickcharger is fully charged up after performing a Slide.


Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.Shock damage is strong against Shields and causes targets to be electrocuted. Electrocution deals very high damage over a 3-second duration.Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-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.
