Hyperborean is the title of a group of submachine guns manufactured exclusively by Maliwan. They use the cryo-element Maliwan barrel. The Hyperborean is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
Usage & Description
The Hyperborean is part of a sub-group of SMGs that only can spawn with a fixed-element Maliwan barrel. They feature the higher-than-usual elemental damage and element proc chance granted by the Maliwan barrel.
Despite the low rarity designation of these weapons, their high elemental chance and status effect can make them excellent choices for combat until a more suitable weapon is obtained.
