How to Unlock The Manual Transmission (Legendary Rifle)

How to Unlock The Manual Transmission (Legendary Rifle)

The Manual Transmission is a Legendary Rifle in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands that increases its fire rate whenever players shift gears at the right time.

Manual Transmission is among the most unique Legendary Rifles that Fatemakers can unlock in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, particularly because its name is quite literal. When firing Manual Transmission, players need to pay attention to the ammunition in the lower right-hand corner of the screen and use the reload action to shift gears. Shifting gears at the correct time will access the Manual Transmission’s barrel swap, increasing the firing rate of the weapon until the next shift needs to occur. When timed perfectly, again and again, players can unlead a powerful barrage of bullets that fire faster than the eye can see.


Manual Transmission can drop with any elemental damage type, or no elemental damage type, making it a versatile option for any build in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Unfortunately, the weapon’s damage output doesn’t increase with the fire rate, making it weak to use against increasing Chaos Level difficulties. Nonetheless, it’s a fun weapon to use, though the shift gears aspect can make it challenging to use in combat.

Before Fatemakers can get Manual Transmission, they’ll have to gain access to Mount Craw and the side quest called Slayer of Vorcanar. This side quest will bring players to the summit of Mount Craw where they’ll have to defeat Vorcanar, which is the boss that Manual Transmission has a designated drop with. Designated drops mean that the weapon has a higher chance of spawning after that boss is defeated and, like the Ancient Obelisk bosses in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Vorcanar is a repeatable boss that players can fight over and over. This allows Fatemakers to get their desired Manual Transmission, making it easier to search for one with the elemental damage type they desire.

In addition to fighting Vorcanar multiple times to get Manual Transmission, players should make sure that they’ve increased their Luck stat. The Luck stat determines the frequency of high-quality gear that Fatemakers can receive from defeating any enemy in the game. Fortunately, the Luck stat is something that Fatemakers can permanently increase, making it easy to obtain all Legendary Loot in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.

To increase the Luck stat permanently by 25%, players need to find all of the pieces to the Shrine of Aaron G in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Another permanent 35% increase to the Luck stat can also be earned by finding all 260 Lucky Dice in the game as well. Additionally, the Druid constellation in Myth Ranks has a Luck skill that can be upgraded to increase the Luck stat by 5% with every new level. Lastly, wearing any Amulet that has a Luck boost will increase the stat temporarily while the Amulet is worn, making it significantly easier to obtain the Manual Transmission Legendary Rifle in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
