The Nasty Surprise is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Hyperion Grenade Mod is used much like any other common Longbow grenade. It will drop child grenades on top of enemies, up to a maximum of four. If there are less than four enemies, or none, the grenades not used will drop consecutively on the destination of the initial grenade, working like a Longbow MIRV grenade but deploying all the child grenades in a very small area.
None, Fire, Slag/Cryo, Shock, Corrosive
Special Weapon Effects:
Greatly reduced damage and blast radius. Longbow grenade which turns invisible during teleport. It drops one child grenade above each enemy up to a maximum of four.
How to get the Nasty Surprise ?:
- Borderlands 2
- The Nasty Surprise can be obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Vermivorous The Invincible.
- Borderlands the Pre-Sequel
- The Nasty Surprise can be obtained randomly from any suitable loot source or the grinder
How to Grind the Nasty Surprise in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel?:
You can use the Grinder in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel to create the Nasty Surprise. While there is no guaranteed recipe, you can combine 3 Purple Grenade Mods to obtain a random legendary Grenade Mod. Be sure to make it a Luneshine grind for a “guaranteed” legendary and also get a chance of getting a Luneshine buff.
The Nasty Surprise can be used for crowd control (hitting five different targets, one from the original Longbow and four more from the child grenades regardless of its position) or for single enemies, because the 5 total grenades will explode simultaneously on a very small area. Beyond this characteristic deployment mechanism, the Nasty Surprise has nothing more worth mentioning, as it is inferior to most legendary, Seraph, and even common grenade mods in terms of raw damage.
- The name and red text closely reference the movie UHF. In a scene from the film, the character “Kuni” is hiding in a closet marked “Supplies”. When the antagonist’s goons open the door, he yells “Supplies!”, shortly before he and his friends attack the goons. The remark is a double entendre, showing both a literal surprise of finding Asian men in martial arts uniforms springing from a closet, and also playing on the supposition that people with thick Japanese accents often transpose “L” and “R” sounds in words.
- The Nasty Surprise is also the only Grenade Mod by Hyperion which is not a Singularity grenade, which is the primary grenade mod type that the manufacturer makes.
