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 Marksman Red Suit
- Recharge Delay: 2.3
- Recharge Rate: 461
- Deals a constant radiation damage per second to nearby enemies
- Grants 100% Radiation Resistance
- When shield is full, shots drain 30% shield for +20% Weapon Damage
- When shield is damaged, 20% on hit to drop a Power Charge that increases weapon damage by 10%

This nifty shield will protect you from all forms of radiation damage – but your enemies won’t be so lucky. Anyone unfortunate enough to get close to you will suffer immense radiation damage, and you can use the opportunity to amp up your own shots whether your shield is full or damaged.
