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 EMP Does
The EMP drops off of Baron Noggin who is a Target of Opportunity which is a Crew Challenge for Zer0. He can be found on Promethea in the Meridian Metroplex at the location marked below.
This is an interesting grenade mod because it technically does very little actual damage, but what it does do is takes off a big portion of the enemy’s shield. This can be very useful against bosses who have large shields that take forever to remove. It won’t remove them completely, but it’s going to do a lot better job of getting rid of it than a standard grenade or weapon.
