Borderlands 3 9-Volt SMG (Where to Find)

Like any Borderlands game – it’s all about the loot, and the Legendary Weapons are the cream of the crop. Borderlands 3 features countless different Legendary Weapons that go above and beyond normal weapons with new styles, skins, and hidden effects.

Legendary guns can be found in slot machines, defeating certain bosses or baddies around the map. Or if you’re lucky, in loot chests scattered across the various Borderlands 3 planets. Legendary guns come with all the quirks and perks that we love so much from the different weapon manufacturers, plus some shiny red text and sometimes a unique firing mode. The Mouthpiece boss you face early on gives you an idea of what to expect, dropping an automatic pistol that shoots dubstep beats and can be cooled by shooting it with a water pistol. They’re crazy cool guns, essentially.

Note that Legendary Weapons and Items can be found at different levels, and the weapon damage will scale to your currently level on finding it, but other effects remain the same.

Where-to Find & What 9-Volt Does

You can find the 9-Volt by accepting and completing the Kill Killavolt side-quest that is found on Promethea in the Merdiain Metroplex. It leads you to a quest where you’ll need to go Lectra City and participate in a Battle Royale. This area is also where you will get the One Pump Chump Shotgun, so it’s well worth doing this quest and clearing out this area. You will eventually complete enough steps to actually fight Killavolt. He can be pretty difficult to beat if you aren’t over-leveled for the area. You mainly need to make sure to avoid the electricity on the ground because it will fully zap your shields off while you’re trying to damage him.

Check out this video guide for some tips and a look at how-to beat him:

This is a burst fire SMG that has a spray pattern of a shotgun in the shape of a V. It has a significant amount of electric damage on it, so it shred shields and does quite a bit of damage. The downside would be that you only get to fire three shots before having to reload because each shot takes three rounds and the magazine size is nine.
