How to Get Kickcharger in Borderlands 3

In order to get the weapon, you can play on Mayhem Level or without it at all. You want to play the new side mode from the Designer’s Cut DLC: "Arms Race".

In Arms Race, you need to battle the constantly decreasing storm like in Battle Royale games.

You can find the Kickcharger in one of the chests, get it as a world drop or dedicated drop from Heavyweight Harker.

The main boss of this game mode has three phases, and the first one is a big shield, so you will need shock or radiation to get rid of it. Then, you will face phase 2 with his dog, which consists of armor. You want to use cryo and corrosive to effectively get rid of the beast. Lastly, he will get off his dog and you will be fighting his health bar. The fire element is good for that.

It has a low drop chance, especially if you are looking for a specific anointment. However, on April 8th, we got a new patch to Borderlands 3, and you are able to reroll anointments on weapons for the right price [250 eridium]. It might make farming for the perfect Kickcharger a lot easier, but you definitely know everything you need on now how to get Kickcharger in Borderlands 3.

Is Kickcharger Worth the Effort?


It is a very nice addition to the Rocket Launchers class. It shoots pretty heavily, deals a lot of damage, and can fit into many builds, especially with the use of brand new Infernal Wish shield also added to the game in Designer’s Cut DLC. Hopefully, after this article, you know exactly how to get Kickcharger in Borderlands 3.
