Default Pocket Rocket - Torgue DLC

I saw one of these pistols in the Torgue vending machine and noticed it looked slightly different (Blue Tinting) and had RED Text in the description.

Anyone try one of these out yet, of know what "special" properties this gun has? I think the bullets might ricochet but it might just Giage's close enough skill making it do that. Let us know if you have given this gun a workout and what your observations might be.

After about one second in flight, the projectile more or less Longbows (as in the grenade delivery) to the target.

Yes, and they are actually quite efficient (certainly in an Axton explosive bulid) at killing things quickly at close to medium range. Before I had an Unkempt Harold I used the x2 Pocket Rocket to do the tier 3 Bar Brawls - it really cleans house with a low ammo expenditure.

Considering how easy it is to get (cheap token cost and you can easily reroll several vending machines in a single trip to get the flavour you want) it is really useful.

I never really noticed the faster flying shot. At least not when I compared it to a regular Torgue pistol. It does make a bigger explosion when it hits compared to a regular pistol.

I wish there were more weapons like it in the game!

By that I mean little squirreled away uniques that aren't God-awful misery to find and have their unique gimmick mostly be improvements to the standard weapon type. Like the Pocket Rocket and the Gwen's Head.

I found one and picked it up because why not, don't have much Torgue gear on me, figured I'd try it out.

To be honest, I can't even tell you why I like it so much, but I think I'm going to do a Sheriff's Relic build soon and the Pocket Rocket will almost definitely have a place in my inventory for that one.

If whatever you're shooting's less than one second away (err, in bullet time), you won't notice the difference.

It's one of the best Torgue pistols in game. It's actually what the Devastator should have been.
