The Min Min Lighter is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Tediore Laser has a very inaccurate weapon, however the shock orbs do bounce of surfaces. It’s true power ins’t directly hitting your enemies. If you shoot the shock orbs there will be a SHOCKPLOSION dealing up to 15 times the weapon’s listed damage.
Special Weapon Effects:
“Approached but never identified.“
Always shock. Consumes 5 ammo per shot. Slow Fire rate. Shoots slow lightning balls that bounce off objects and deal damage to all enemies that near it in a great radius. Shooting the lightning ball with any other weapon results in a shock explosion.
How to get the Min Min Lighter ?:
The Min Min Lighter is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
How to Grind the Min Min Lighter ?:
You can use the Grinder to create the Min Min Lighter. While there is no guaranteed recipe, you can combine 2 Legendary weapons and 1 Purple laser weapon to obtain a random legendary laser. Be sure to make it a luneshine grind for a “guaranteed” legendary and also get a chance of getting a luneshine buff.
- The shock orbs fired by the Min Min Lighter stray very far from the crosshairs, making the weapon unreliable beyond close range even as an area-of-effect weapon.
- The radial damage dealt by a still-traveling shock orb is equivalent to about 3.5x the listed damage of the weapon, but this inexplicably varies by 5-10% at different levels.
- Shock explosions created by shooting a shock orb deal about 15x the weapon’s listed damage in an area of affect about as large across as the area affected by an un-boosted Slam attack. The exact damage increase also fluctuates inexplicably between level brackets, but is generally between 15x and 16x.
- Its incredibly low rate of fire can be circumvented through swapping to a different weapon, and switching back before the animation finishes. Doing this can significantly increase the damage output.
- The name and effect of the Lighter are a reference to the Min Min lights, an unexplained phenomenon reported in eastern Australia. The phenomenon was a strange light that would “follow” tourist’s cars around.
