LEGENDARY GUNS IN BORDERLANDS 3

ATLAS LEGENDARY GUNS

LINC

Power is in the pizza

La Linc is the only one among the pistols Atlas of the original game to be legendary.

While the regular pistols Atlas with a high rate of fire shoot in bursts, the Linc has fully automatic fire, a huge magazine and a rate of fire even higher than normal, quietly rivaling the double-barreled Vladof

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : Consecrated Alpha at The Anvil .

CHILDREN OF THE VAULT LEGENDARY GUNS / CHILDREN OF CRYPT

LINOGE

My name is legion, since we are many.

La Linoge , whose name is a crippling of “Legion”, is one of the best guns in all Borderlands 3. Although all its statistics are high, its true merit consists in firing an incredible amount of bullets, at a reduced cost of ammunition; it is not difficult to find a Linoge that shoots 4 bullets simultaneously, but there are also variations from 3 or 5. On the other hand the bullets move at reduced speed, so it is more ideally used at close range.

The consumption of ammunition is always less than 1 compared to counting bullets, the weapon also tends to overheat very quickly, so it is ideal for “nuking” enemies. it is particularly suitable against bosses, especially those who have large exposed critical points

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

PESTILENCE

Quickly, triumphantly, to win.

The Pestilence is a COV pistol with a very high rate of fire that has only one radioactive element. An excellent gun because of its very high statistics, the pestilence is characterized by the fact that when it overheats it releases a radioactive cloud similar to that emitted by an enemy killed while irradiated. This explosion will also slightly damage the player, but this effect can be contrasted with the right equipment, especially the shield Red Suit .

La Pestilence is a suitable weapon on any character, without any distinction. However, it is best used on Amara and Moze as for all VOCs / FDCs, but also on Fl4k if there is a consecrated variant for the gamma impulse

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : Heckle and Hyde at Villa Jakobs .

PSYCHO STABBER

Fa fa ago ago, ago ago ago ago ago …

La Psycho Stabber is a very special pistol, whose performance as a weapon in itself is not exactly extraordinary. His not-so-extraordinary statistics are not exactly taken advantage of by his unique fire mode, as his bullets travel along an arc.

In return, the Psycho Stabber will always mount the most powerful accessory for strengthening the melee, guaranteeing a bonus of 120 % to melee damage. This same accessory can be found (although rarely) on other weapons, which is why the Psycho Stabber can be considered a legendary passageway, replaceable at any time by a more suitable withholding.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : Borman Nates At Periphery of Meridian .

SKEKSIL

.

La Skeksil is one of the strangest weapons among the VOCs / FDCs. This high-performance gun fires only and exclusively in bursts and from each of these may appear a random number of strokes, whose behavior is similar to the Torgue gyrojets, but slower.

This is not a bad weapon, in fact its damage is potentially excellent, but its inconstancy and very particular fire mode make it a very complex weapon to use, without any particular advantages being found.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : Skrakk At Peak of ascension .

LEGENDARY GUNS FROM DAHL

AAA

Wait up! I am lithium!

The AAA is an extraordinary Dahl pistol, which is practically free from defects: high rate of fire, high damage, very high recharging speed, and its bullets are huge and practically no recoil. This weapon has some constant characteristics: it will always fire 2 shots at a time, it will always be in burst and only and exclusively electric (in fact the name is a reference to the size of the batteries).

The AAA is also the pistol with the highest elemental probability of the game, aligned with the Sellout , which however is plagued by a considerable recoil.

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

HORNET

Feel the swarm!

A great Dahl pistol returning from Borderlands 2, the Hornet is an extraordinary weapon from every point of view: very high general statistics are further buffed by its ability to shoot 6-round bursts and deal area damage.

For this reason, the Hornet is one of the best weapons on Moze, which can enjoy the same advantages found on grenades, torgue or maliwan weapons and in general on everything deals damage through explosions.

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

NEMESIS

.

La Nemesis is probably one of the best guns in the game, as well as one that with the right accessories can literally behave like a super high-performance SMG burst. His statistics are all excellent without any distinction, but in particular he highlights his absurd rate of fire, which easily swings around 15 blows / second, accompanied by a recoil practically non-existent.

This is one of the guns that can be used successfully on any character: even if a given build inevitably leads to preferring some weapons over others, one Nemesis is a weapon always and however excellent.

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

NIGHT FLYER

I have only one rule.

La Night Flyer is one of the title's easter egg weapons, in fact it is a reference to Batman. Just like the bat man, the Night Flyer will prevent you from killing the enemy, making sure that his health never falls below 1: in this case, the enemy will be quite immune to damage.

It has not yet been verified what happens when using a character like Amara, able to convert normal damage into elemental and therefore to apply state effects.

The Night Flyer is characterized by a very high damage per shot and a very high rate of fire, it will also shoot completely automatically if you are in the air. It's not necessarily a good weapon since it forces you to change weapons to get kills, but it's still very powerful and can come in handy to complete global challenges.

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : I am Rakkman At Carnivora .

LEGENDARY GUNS JAKOBS

AMAZING GRACE

Memento mori.

The Amazing Grace of all Jakobs legendary guns is probably the worst, simply because its special effect is similar to other better guns, without any particular advantages in the use this variant. As a unique effect, this gun reloads the charger for free by 1, obtaining a critical hit, virtually allowing you to fire at infinity.

It is not a bad weapon and can find employment on Fl4k with the disappearance and a build strongly oriented to the critical hits, it simply exists of better, also much better.

La Amazing Grace can be obtained from a secondary mission to Devil’s Razor.

ASSESSMENT: 2/5 – SCARSA

WHERE TO GET IT : Secondary mission At Devil's Razor .

KING'S CALL

.

An example of a gun identical to Amazing Grace but clearly superior in performance, King's Call is a Jakobs weapon symbolically associated with Troy Calypso always elemental (incendiary, electric or corrosive) and is one of the best known of the weapons used for a build on critical hits with Fl4k and its disappearance ability

The King's Call has a 6-shot fixed magazine, consumes 3 shots per shot, but each critic generates 3 additional projectiles that bounce off nearby enemies, including the original target. Used to “stifle” large bosses, it still has excellent use against groups of common enemies.

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : Tyreen Calypso At Slit of the destroyer .

MAGGIE

.

A gun returning from Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequel, the Maggie is perhaps at its worst iteration ever in Borderlands 3. The guns Jakobs Masher , which are absolutely identical to Maggie, but also have higher precision and better basic damage.

While enjoying greater ammunition capacity, the Maggie in fact is worse in any aspect of more common weapons. There is no reason to recommend it compared to masher, even after the recent hotfix that has increased the damage.

Regardless of this, the Maggie is still a type of gun Jakobs Masher , so your performances will still be good. You should never discard one Maggie at least until you find a best performing masher (or consecrated effects).

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

QUEEN’S CALL

Life is ours and we live it as we please

The Queen's Call is the counterpart of King's Call , associated with Tyreen Calypso .

It has exactly the same identical properties, advantages and disadvantages, with the difference that its elements can only be freezing, radiation and corrosion. In other words, between Queen and King the choice of wheel only on the basis of the element used

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : Tyreen Calypso At Slit of the destroyer .

THE COMPANION

They can never take away the sky.

The Companion is another Jakobs gun that can be used successfully using Fl4k and its disappearance ability. This weapon has the ability to always be incendiary, but can apply state effects only with critical hits. It is not a great weapon, but one whose mechanics are very particular and which can be used against large enemies.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

THE DUC

Shoot me on the fly

An excellent Jakobs pistol, as well as one of the best weapons of all Borderlands 3, The Duc mixes the properties of Jakobs pistols with Torgue ones. With this high damage base gun you can fire Gyrojet, inflicting a first impact damage and a very high damage with the explosion, which will happen after a few seconds.

The Duc finds excellent employment on Fl4k , Amara and Moze : on the first one it is the same as for all the Jakobs coupled with Disappearance, on the second it has excellent effectiveness thanks to the possibility of bouncing projectiles (which will explode on the impact on the secondary targets), while on Moze due to its affinity with explosive damage .

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

THE FLOOD

.

The Flood is a weapon that stands out for its ability to shoot in fully automatic mode, impossible on any other Jakobs gun. On the other hand it will have a noticeable recoil along with reduced accuracy and damage.

It is not a particularly good weapon, but it can be used very well on large enemies.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

UNFORGIVEN

Cow that tool …

La Unforgiven is a recurrent gun in the saga, an excellent legendary in the first Borderlands and a very bad pearlescent in the second. In this title it is a very good weapon, which compensates for a very low rate of fire with a bonus for critical damages simply extraordinary: 400% total.

This is a very good gun for anyone who loves to play more patient, waiting for the opportunity to go without fail, it is also particularly suitable for any build of Fl4k with the disappearance, which gives priority to the amount of critical damage , maintaining the original limit of 3 strokes during the skill.

Combining the bonus of Disappearance and that of Unforgiven , which will also be applied to rebound hit targets, this weapon can disintegrate anything with very little effort.

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

WAGON WHEEL

.

The Wagon Wheel could be a Jakobs pistol whatsoever, but it boasts a unique game mechanic concerning bounce shots: in fact this weapon always generates additional bullets, which propagate from the target in a radial direction, “like the wheels of a wagon”

Bounce bullets increase further when a critical hit is achieved. Again, not a bad weapon, but simply one whose special effect is not always available correctly.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy , but the wiki reports a probability of obtaining it by delivering Bottinograms to Crazy Earl

MALIWAN LEGENDARY GUNS

Hellshock

I would not have believed that so many deaths had undone.

La Hellshock is a Maliwan pistol with excellent overall performance, slightly higher than the very rare variants of the same manufacturer based on a high rate of fire without loading or damage per area. Compared to the latter, it is characterized by an even higher elemental probability.

The peculiarity of Hellshock is that its element is always a choice between incendiary and electric, the strokes change element becoming the opposite when they hit the surfaces.

It is a good legendary gun that behaves more similarly to a very valid SMG , simply has little attention because it exists better in the goal.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

Hyper-Hydrator

A little humidity never killed anyone

La Hyper-Hydrator is a nice Maliwan pistol with discrete overall performance, which has an alternative fire mode that allows you to bathe the enemies, and then inflict increased electrical damage on them. .

Like many other weapons included as a bonus for Borderlands 3 pre-order the Hyper-Hydrator is more a fun toy than a real weapon, but it gets along pretty well well, especially if used on Amara with build based on the elemental Pugni branch.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : pre-order bonus for Borderlands 3 or related DLC .

Sellout

Hello, Superfan!

One of the best elemental guns in the game, the Sellout is a legendary pistol that can only be obtained as a reward for a secondary quest in the Ambermire .

This is a Maliwan instant-loading pistol, which fires 3 shots with area damage, each with excellent base damage and very high elemental probability; its element will always be incendiary and corrosive. Definitely one of the most powerful tools on Amara with Pugni elemental builds, it is strong on any character, but it is characterized by a huge recoil that can limit its use.

Firing with this weapon you will hear comments from Tyreen Calypso .

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : secondary quest near Ambermire

SUPERBALL

.

A weapon that exists above all as an easter egg, the Superball is a Maliwan gun that shoots Super Mario's incendiary balls, so its element will always be incendiary. Although its performances are quite good, the very limited range due to the arc trajectory makes it scarcely usable.

ASSESSMENT: 2/5 – SCARSA

  1. WHERE TO GET IT : none place or specific enemy .

THUNDERBALL FISTS

Can I have such a thing?

While the Thunderball Fists was a crazy weapon in Borderlands 2 , even dangerous for those who used it , in Borderlands 3 it is a decidedly milder and almost anonymous weapon. In fact, for a Maliwan it has low performances, which in theory are compensated by the fact that each bullet generates a secondary explosion, but this happens with a too marked delay because it is possible to exploit it.

ASSESSMENT: 2/5 – SCARSA

  1. WHERE TO GET IT : none place or specific enemy .

LEG GUNS ARIE TEDIORE

BABY MAKER

Via la sicurezza

The Baby Maker returns from Borderlands 2, after having briefly changed its name to IVF in the Pre-Sequel. This gun is characterized by amplifying the performance of the peculiar tedior weapons recharging mode.

The variations we tried are transformed into a series of proximity mines, which are thrown on anyone who is so unlucky to approach, but different behaviors have also been documented.

In general it is an excellent pistol, but it has a very high consumption of ammunition: it is practically unthinkable to use another pistol together with Baby Maker and it is not difficult to find yourself completely in dry in a few minutes, somehow limiting its usefulness

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy, but can be obtained by collecting all the parts of Dead Claptrap in the galaxy.

Bangarang

.

A pistol that very much recalls the functioning of the Shooterang in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and of the Avenger in Borderlands 2, the Bangarang is a good weapon for a Tediore, but still outclassed by the Tediore Baby Maker .

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

GUNERANG

.

La Gunerang returns to Borderlands 2 and keeps alive the tradition of being a bad weapon. The unique charging mode makes it behave like a boomerang, but paradoxically this makes it even less usable than a normal tediore gun.

It is impossible to positively evaluate the Gunerang until its unique characteristic is made more consistent, use a different gun instead and avoid it altogether

ASSESSMENT: 1/5 – PESSIMA

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

LEGENDARY TORGUE GUNS

BREEDER

The man passes the sentence to man

La Breeder like all guns Torgue of Borderlands 3 has excellent overall performance. However, the conditions under which this specific gun operates are actually a huge disadvantage, given that they do not benefit from the Gyrojet bonus damage accumulation mechanics, although they are used.

The gyrojets of Breeder explode releasing additional bullets that fall affected by gravity, generally they can hit adjacent enemies or again the original target if it is large. In truth it is simply an improper weapon and it is better to adopt a very rare or good E-Tech pistol

ASSESSMENT: 2/5 – SCARSA

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

DEVASTATOR

.

La Devastator was a seraphic pistol from Borderlands 2 that returns as legendary in Borderlands 3. By itself, just like in the previous title, it is an excellent pistol, perhaps among the best of both games. However some intrinsic characteristics make it more “good” than “excellent”

First, the Devastator does not have the Gyrojet fire mode, but only a double-burst fire that shoots slow projectiles, whose explosion area is greater than a normal Torgue. For this reason in general it is not so convenient and indeed, it simply does not have the qualities to distinguish itself among other excellent guns, first of all other Torgue.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

DEVILS FOURSUM

.

The Devils Foursum is one of the strangest Torgue pistols in all of Borderlands 3. In fact, this weapon has simply monstrous damage per shot and also fires 3 shots at a time, potentially becoming one of the game's most devastating weapons. The area of ​​effect of these shots is also huge by Borderlands 3 standards.

The problem is that these shots follow a specific pattern and have a very low range, meeting and exploding a few meters from the player. For this reason, this theoretically extraordinary weapon is simply not very usable, in fact unusable against some enemies and / or bosses

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD (WITH RESERVES …)

WHERE TO GET IT : Mother of Bloodshine during a quest at Lectra City .

ECHO

Don't make me repeat it

The Echo is not only excellent like all Torgue pistols, it is also an extraordinary weapon more generally, particularly suitable for characters like Moze or Fl4k with Impulso Gamma build, but finding excellent use also on Amara with Pugni Elementali builds .

This gun fires only Gyrojets that do not have cumulative damage bonuses, but each gyrojet will explode three times instead of one, inflicting massive damage, far superior to normal.

The right consecrated variants of this legendary gun can easily make them deserve a score from 5/5.

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

GIRTH BLASTER ELITE

Do not collapse now.

We are not sure what Gearbox had in mind when he put the Girth Blaster Elite as a bonus for the Borderlands 3 pre-order, but probably the intention was to control us. In fact this gun is simply a “non-weapon”: practically does not even inflict damage .

Unless it has hidden game mechanics, simply the Girth Blaster Elite is completely useless.

EVALUATION: 1/5 – PESSIMA – IT IS NOT EVEN A WEAPON

WHERE TO GET IT : Pre-order bonus of Borderlands 3 or relative DLC .

occultist

The only way to control people is with lies.

The Occultist is an excellent weapon in general, with truly excellent performances. Certainly not the best among the legendary Torgue, it is easily released by a boss of history and therefore easily enters the players' arsenal, accompanying them in the last stretch of history.

This weapon shoots a large incendiary globe around which other smaller globes orbit, which will inflict damage (per area) in turn even though they are not listed on weapon card .

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : Troy Calypso At The Great Crypt .

ROISEN’S THORNS

There is no pleasure, no pain.

La Roisen’s Thorns is probably the best of Borderlands 3 legendary Torgue pistols, with performances that far outclass the competition. It is in fact the Unkept Harold of this title.

La Roisen’s Thorns , in addition to inflicting excellent starting damage, will always fire 2 additional incendiary bullets along with the original corrosive shot; the Double Penetrating variants of this gun will duplicate both corrosive and incendiary blows, making it possible to inflict a mere monstrous amount of damage. This special effect does not work by shooting with Gyrojet.

This weapon is excellent on any character, but probably on Amara with build Elemental punches more than any other. With this weapon and the electric action skill modifier you can simultaneously apply three different status effects, making it one of the best gear choices on the character.

ASSESSMENT: 5/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

LEGENDARY GUNS VLADOF

INFINITY

It is closer than you think! (No it is not).

La Infinity returns in Borderlands 3, this time as a weapon a little less powerful than in the past: its performance has indeed undergone some revision, making it no longer optimal as before.

Although it is no longer a glorious weapon as it was on Zer0 in Borderlands 2, it remains a excellent weapon if used on Zane and su Moze , who enjoy skills that are activated only with the first stroke in the magazine.

ASSESSMENT: 3/5 – GOOD

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .

MAGNIFICENT

Yedesh na den ', khleba beri na nedelyu.

La Magnificent is the equivalent of the assault rifle Vladof Shredifier made pistol: huge magazine capacity, very high rate of fire, in exchange for a slightly reduced damage and a very high recharge time. Like the Shredifier it can be fitted with accessories and even a double barrel, potentially increasing 25% the rate of fire.

This is an excellent gun in general, particularly useful on Moze when played with a strong build geared to ammunition regeneration and extended fire times. The damage per shot reduced limits its use possibilities in some way, but it remains a very valid pistol

EVALUATION: 4/5 – EXCELLENT

WHERE TO GET IT : no specific place or enemy .
