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.
Borderlands 3 Diamond Butt Bomb
This particularly flamboyant throwable is inspired by Handsome Jack’s faithful Butt Stallion herself (whereabouts still unknown), and homes in on the closest target when chucked with deadly efficiency.
Not only that, but the resulting explosions casts out a tide of mini butt stallions in the process, creating a wide radius of damage that’ll hit anyone else caught in the shockwave. There’s a lot of neighing, silly music, and rainbows, too, so what’s not to like?
