Borderlands 3 (BL3) – How to get Contained Blast

Contained Blast – Drop Location

Contained Blast drops from Abbdoxis on Ashfall Peaks at Gehenna. You need to obviously first go and start the Bounty of Blood DLC in order to get access to the mentioned locations. Here is the exact location of Abbadoxis :

Just spawn at Ashfall Peaks and make your way to the location. It is a pretty short walk and Abbadoxis is the first mini boss that you will encounter on Ashfall Peaks. Once you reach the location you will notice a save point nearby. So you can just quit to main menu after you defeat Abbadoxis and you will spawn really close to the location next time you load in the game.

Abbadoxis is very easy to farm as it has no shields. Just make sure that you have a good Incendiary weapon and you will be completing your runs with a blink of an eye.

Now regarding the drop rate of the Contained Blast, I do not have much idea about it. The Contained Blast dropped for me on my very first run. So I didn’t bother farming any longer. I was farming at Mayhem 10 difficulty at Normal Mode(TVHM off).

Contained Blast – Weapon Stats and Description

Lets take a look at the weapon stats of Contained Blast. The one shown here is the Gratifying Contained Blast (Level 60):

Contained Blast is an Assault Rifle of the Legendary or Orange rarity in Borderlands 3. The weapon is a part of the third DLC called Bounty of Blood. And is probably one of the best Legendary weapons that you can get from the DLC 3.

This is a Torgue weapon but it does come in different elements as well. Now if you have the single shot variant of the weapon then it will shoot one explosive shot and a sticky grenade. If you have the double shot(x2) variant then it will shoot 2 explosive shots and 2 sticky grenades. The explosive shots will deal damage immediately upon impact. But the sticky ones will explode after you reload the weapon.

The damage on this weapon is extremely high, probably one of the highest in the game. And you can melt any boss in few seconds even at Mayhem 10 difficulty. It is highly recommended that you grab this.
