About the Zheitsev’s Eruption:
The Zheitsev’s Eruption is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3. This COV assault rifle deals decent damage when used regularly, however, its legendary special effect boosts the Zheitsev’s Eruption way up. When your weapon overheats and therefore breaks, it shoots out 8 homing projectiles. These will weaken the target making them vulnerable for 7 seconds. Each homing projectile will, therefore, result in a 20% damage boost. By switching your weapon during this “reload” animation you can force the gun’s special ability again and again. Every other weapon can benefit from the bonus damage. You are basically just marking targets this way and dealing damage with your favorite weapon.
Special Weapon Effect:
“Pain and Misery erupt in the Void.”
- When the weapon breaks it will spit out 8 homing projectiles. Each projectile seeks out a target and applies a 20% damage increase, stacking up to 200% bonus damage.
- Marked enemies have a red glow
- The 8 projectiles can all choose their own target
