How to Get the Boomer’s Shredder Gauntlet

Complete Boom or Bust

Once you’ve completed the Main Quest Death’s Door you’ll be able to accept the Side Quest The Burning Blooms from Mian in Stone’s Echo, then after you’ve completed it you’ll be able to accept the Side Quest Breaking Even from Porguf in Stillsands. After you’ve completed Breaking Even you’ll be able to accept Boom or Bust from Delah and Abadund in Hidden Ember which will reward you with the Boomer Shredder Gauntlet.

How to Use the Boomer’s Shredder Gauntlet

The Sunhawk Shredder Gauntlet is best used when fighting larger machines that are susceptible to Acid Damage. A great way to use his weapon is to start with the Acid Shredders to weaken the armor, then switch over to the Shredders to deal more damage on the exposed areas.
