Maliwan Volcano

Legendary items are rare weapons featuring unique red text effects, with a yellow, orange or dark orange coloration on their item cards in Borderlands, and an orange coloration in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Unlike unique items, legendary items can spawn at any time, can usually be acquired anywhere, and don't have any restrictions on their parts, provided generic rules are respected.

About Legendary Items

  • Each manufacturer has one (and usually exactly one) legendary weapon for each weapon type it manufactures.
  • Orange weapons with inherent elemental properties are especially strong because they provide the elemental effects with no loss of damage rating (or sometimes even an increase), unlike normal elemental accessory parts that reduce damage by up to 40% in exchange for elemental properties. However, this only applies to orange weapons that inherently possess a specific element, like the Atlas Ogre or Maliwan Hellfire. Orange weapons that do not inherently come in a specific element can occasionally be randomly generated with various elemental accessories, but these will result in a reduced base damage rating, as normal.
  • In Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, legendary items are more akin to pearlescent items in Borderlands - each legendary in both of those games features a unique material pattern and some have more than one predefined part.

Pearlescent Items

Pearlescent items are a cross between unique items and super-legendary items. Please see the Pearlescent article for more information.

  • Some legendary weapons can only be obtained via the above sources, as they have no loot pool, these weapons are identified by the location being 'Any Location' (unless stated).
  • In Borderlands 2 most legendary items can be found in chests or can be obtained by killing loot midgets. Some legendary items can only be obtained by killing certain enemies or completing certain missions.

Trivia

  • Most items with flavor text on it carry a reference that is either historical, based on pop culture, or a quote from a well-known individual or game.
