About the Scourge:
The Scourge is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Torgue Rocket Launcher fires a slow-moving rocket that continuously spawns smaller rockets that swirl around the main projectile. After a little while, these child rockets will home in on enemy targets. The Scourge is great for taking on bosses and will do a decent job at mobs.
