The Mongol is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Vladof Rocket Launcher balances its increased ammo consumption with the ability to inflict damage both in a single concentrated area, with its large initial projectile, as well as over a large area, with its spawned small rockets. Thus the Mongol can be used effectively against large targets, groups of enemies, and agile targets difficult to pin down with a single projectile.
Shock, Incendiary, Corrosive, Slag/Cryo, or Explosive
Special Weapon Effects:
“The Horde will always return!”
Fires a single large rocket for the cost of two ammo that sporadically releases multiple smaller rockets at random angles along its flight path.
