The Spade Weapon Overview

This TORGUE weapon comes in 4 variations in terms of the number of pellets per shot. X4 and X5 consumes 1ammo/shot | X8 and X10 consumes 2ammo/shot.  The weapon projectiles are called Gyrojets which penetrate the target, leaving sticky bombs on all enemies they penetrate or pass through. You can eat through enemies easily with this weapon. Keep in mind not to fire too close, since it deals splash damage due to bomb explosions.
Highly Recommended for your main loadout, especially with a Moze Build or an FL4K Crit build or any meta Amara build. Even at high Mayhem Levels, it does serious damage to enemies all around. Even Single bosses can be dealt with if you shoot all the pellets near their base or foot. The same cannot be said for airborne Bosses and enemies of course.


That will be all for this guide on getting or farming The Spade Legendary Shotgun in Borderlands 3. Do your own experiments with the weapon and let us know if you come across any creative ideas to use the weapon. We are open to questions and suggestions in the comments below.
