Borderlands 3 Trevonator – Usage and Description

In the game, the gun will release nine projectiles very quickly in a fraction of a second because of the burst fire mode. It is combined with the dual elements of Maliwan weapons, and it consists of a high rate of fire. It can create massive damage while you are in the close in the mid-range combat of the game. 


The name of this weapon is inspired by Trevor Eastman, who is a die-hard Borderlands fan. But unfortunately, this man was diagnosed with cancer. Eastman had requested the team, and thus Gearbox team invited him to play a preview build of this game, and finally, they named a fantastic material on his name in the game. Sadly, Trevor couldn’t win the battle over cancer, and he was passed away on 02 October 2019 (:sadge:). 


Now we will look at the Elements required in the Trevonator weapon in the Borderlands 3. They are as follows:


The following weapon has fire damage, and it is robust against the Flesh. This weapon can cause the targets to get burned. The burning will deal with a heavy damage rate throughout five seconds in the gameplay.


The corrosive damage of this weapon is extreme while it is against the Armor, and it will cause the targets to get melt. The melting effect will create a heavy damage high amount of damage within seven seconds.


Shock damage is seriously very serious against the shields in the game. The reason is that it targets the electrocuted in the game. Here the Electrocution will face an extremely high rate of damager over three seconds.


The damage rate of Cryo will slow down the enemy rate, and it will also eventually freeze them. The efficiency is the percentage of damage dealt when the Cryo is applied with one hundred percent efficiency. As an output, the enemies will freeze with twenty percent of the health rate, and the frozen enemies will not be able to move anywhere in the gameplay. It will also take 3x Melee damage rate in Borderlands 3.


In this game, the Radiation Damage can affect the targets, and they can get Irradiated. At the same time, the Irradiated enemies will deal with the Aura Damage towards all the nearby enemies surrounded them for eight seconds. If, unfortunately, because of any reason, the Irradiated enemy is killed, or it dies, they will get exploded. Irradiating any of the enemies in the game get damaged by the explosion.
