Elon Musk’s Crypto Flamethrower Is Actually in Borderlands 3

The Elon Musk flamethrower saga officially has a new chapter.

To recap, last January, Musk introduced The Boring Company flamethrower, joking that the weapon has a safe word, “cryptocurrency,” and comes with a free blockchain.

In response to the tweet, Randy Pitchford, co-founder and CEO of Gearbox Software, the development team behind Borderlands 3, let Musk know that he was going to add the flamethrower to the upcoming game.

Over a year later and Pitchford has apparently made good on his promise.

Recently brought to our attention on Twitter by crypto trader Josh McGruff, there is a legendary weapon that looks like The Boring Company flamethrower available in the game that features two references to Musk’s tweet.

The gun, which is called the “Firesale Long Muskett,” was originally found and tested by Bonjwa in a live stream at Gamescom 2019. Notably, the gun is manufactured by Tediore, which means it can be thrown at the enemy to reload and a new fully-loaded gun materializes in the player’s hands. While it has little to do with cryptocurrency apart from the two text references, it does appear to be highly effective vs. flesh.

Borderlands 3 isn’t the first mainstream game to feature crypto references. As we reported last month, Apex Legends’ latest character is named Crypto and one of the character skins makes reference to blockchain technology.
