About the Spade:

The Spade is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. The projectiles from this Torgue Shotgun pass through enemies and leaves a sticky bomb on every opponent it goes through. You can line up your targets or you can shoot at their feet so that the projectile also sticks a bomb under their feet.


Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.

Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.

Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-second duration.

Shock damage is strong against Shields and causes targets to be electrocuted. Electrocution deals very high damage over a 3-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.

“Lucille, God gave me a gift.”

  • Gyrojets penetrate targets leaving a sticky bomb on all enemies they pass through.
