Torgue has always been known for some interesting marketing choices, but in Borderlands 3 Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC it’s time for you to fix a Torgue marketing mistake. In exchange, you will receive a new weapon: the Scoville.
Torgue thought it would be a good idea to create a promotional hot sauce, which would be cool if it weren’t also explosive. You will find these hot sauce bottles throughout the Jackpot and your job is to destroy them with bullets.
There are five bottles of Torgue’s Marketing Error that you can find through The Jackpot. You’ll also receive XP, Eridium, and money for each hot sauce bottle you destroy.
Along with Ember’s Purge, Scoville is one of two legendary weapons in Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot that can only be found by completing a challenge.

How useful is Scoville in Borderlands 3?
The main draw of the Scoville is that instead of using bullets, you’re shooting hot sauce bottles at your enemies. This makes it a perfect choice for the odd Borderlands weapon collector.
Double bottles of hot sauce.
Due to this special feature, the Scoville deals incendiary damage, making it highly effective against any fleshed enemy. It also has an additional splash damage radius of 751, because the hot sauce will definitely splash when it hits the ground.
Although it consumes four ammunition per shot, the Scoville is a very effective weapon, which can cause a large amount of damage in a very short time. Depending on your level, it can deal a lot of damage and, you know, shoot hot sauce bottles.
