Question about the nemesis pistol

I have a fire nemesis but it seems to also do shock damage randomly. Is that part of the weapons special effect?

Yes, all or most red-text guns have some hidden gimmicks.

Yes, it has a secondary shock element to it. I think it’s a call back to Borderlands 1

Well I love this gun. I have a bloodletter that gives 31% pistol damage so this thing is even better. Fire + Shock is an awesome combo for general mobbing
