eridian blaster pearlescent
hi i found an eridian pearl blaster weapon when killing crawmerax, abeit, it wasnt any diffrent than a generic blaster, just haveing the name colour of a blaster, anyone else find a eridian pearlescent glitch? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
- No, because it's not a glitch - it's modded. There are no pearlescent Eridians. --Nagamarky 03:12, May 17, 2010 (UTC)
there is a debate about another wepon called the hx bitch bitch it has been found in legit (aparently) and modded forms. I know i have one that has 148 damage with a 12.5 fire rate which sucks and was found by my friend from crawmerax. if anybody else has any info on this gun like they got one please post.
- To my knowledge, the "Bitch Bitch" is not a legitmate weapon. I would be seriously surprised if it was. My first experience with this weapon was here. The new Pearlescent weapons, each and every one of them have their own new and unique flavor text. "Smack 'em" is part of the original BL game pre everything let alone the new Knoxx DLC. I completely belive the weapon to be a hack. 184.108.40.206 23:22, March 3, 2010 (UTC)AVRakk3187
I am unsure if there can be modded weps on the 360, but i have a bitch bitch pearlescent - GT: GAYNOR54
Yes there can be, and yes it is modded. --Nagamarky 03:12, May 17, 2010 (UTC)
All double names are modded but theyhave now started being found in game as the game ha had so many fed to it it now recognises them as mods because when people farm crawmerax the lag from the guns dropping after its alredy been killed can intergrate it too the save it is caused when one of the modds is onn the floor. GT: SadisticDreamer
^Nope. The game doesn't adapt. NOhara24 02:58, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
no bitch bitch is legit cuz i dnt have xbx live and i have it
- nope. xbl or no, doesn't change the fact that the bitch bitch is a mod. 04:06, January 30, 2012 (UTC)
can anyone confirm that you can get Pearl weapons from weapon chests
??????????????Japsa 13:25, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
yes you can. i just got a Serpens in the armory from a Crimson Lance Chest (the big one). - SpAzTaRd 19:21, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
I also got a pearlescent from a chest in the armory. Level 60 Tsunami in a Crimson Lance chest.Wanzer 07:08, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

I'm starting to see a pattern here. I've found 3 Tsunamis and two Bessies from the armory in the exact same spot; second floor in the maze of crates to the right or left. Do you think there are certain chests that only spawn certain pearls? I really want to confirm this because those are the only two I have ever encountered in that spot.

Is it a typo that it says theyre dropped "sometimes by Lancers". Does that mean the cars or just lance soldiers??
Not sure what the original intent of "sometimes by Lancers" is, but I can definitely confirm that pearlescents can drop from lance soldiers. A 61 Badass Defender in Road's End dropped *two* pearlescents (Nemesis and Ironclad) for me last night. Killed Crawmerax twice and got nothing; killed a random lance and got 2 for 1. 220.127.116.11 23:22, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
Lancers are also vehicles. So it may or may not be. GnarlyToaster 22:09, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
The drop is dependent on who is in the vehicleRiceygringo 04:53, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
All the guns with double names are hacked i found this out last night after being given 5 or 6 of them these are hex edited guns otherwise they would have proper names. Has anyone found the pearl eridian gun because I heard rumors of one....?
- Double name weapons are modded. With the release of the next generation of Willtree, the weapon filter of Borderlands was quickly defeted and will allow certian weapons (weapons with legitimate parts, but not legitimate part configurations) to exist within the game that would not otherwise be created by the game itself. I would like to see the "Unforgiven Unforgiven" deleted from the Pearlescent list. I will not do anything without a second opinion though.AVRakk3187 13:42, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
The double names cant be modded becasue i found the Unforgiven Unforgiven by killing Crawmarex, and modded guns cant be made anymore, if a gun has any changes made to it, then the gun is illegable even if you use legitimate parts, so the unforgiven is a real gun. This also explains why Atlas has two pearlescent guns.
- Please, do the research yourself. I have and this is what I've found. Gearbox Forums: General Knoxx Nano's Modding Codes. As I stated above, after Patch 1.30 was released, a new version of Willotree was released to allow continued use of modded weapons. At this point, the only mods that the filter catches are the ones that cannot exist in the game, such as rocket shooting pistols and viral shields, just to name a couple. It is likely that the Unforgiven Unforgiven you found was dropped by someone in your party to make it look like Crawmerax loot. The Unforgiven Unforgiven is not a legitimate weapon.AVRakk3187 17:48, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Ok now i feel like an idiot i thought it was legitimate, well thanks for clearing it up AVRakk
- It wasn't my intent to make you feel like an "idiot" but I am sincerely glad I could help you better understand what I was trying to say! AVRakk3187 21:07, March 7, 2010 (UTC)
Well, back in the day (version 1.0) you were able to "Craft" weapons (Not necessairly modded I'll explain why ina sec), you were able to open up your save files and adjust the "parts" for the weapons and basically give them parts from all different guns, ending in weapons that were "Masher-Defiler-Equalizer-etc...". (although they didnt have these super long names, just the final part in the name), which is why some people back then may have seen regular people shooting ridiculously fast and powerful versions of your guns. Me and a buddy of mine used to craft weapons on v1 and dupe them for others, crafted was completely random and time-consuming but the end result was a super high "legit-looking" weapon; I had a Masher-Defiler that did 2000x7 damage, 6 round, scoped, fast firing, and the game accepted it as a non-modded gun. When the next version came out, 2k corrected this and made it impossible to craft weapons, this is when people turned to "modding" and came up with pistols that fired 100's of clusterbomb rockets that could crash the game if fired too much. When version 1.3 came out, they corrected this problem and the game automatically removes any weapons that were crafted back in version 1.0 (removed any "legit-looking" weapons that had conflicts in parts), this is when I had lost all those crafted weapons I had made xD. Now adays there are no crafted weapons left (except those who crafted high value single named weapons) but modded weapons are still around because they bypass the games weapon generation, although there is considerably less of them since before v1.3. Kewlcrayon 22:48, March 7, 2010 (UTC)
No, I fought Crawmerax solo and got the unforgiven unforgiven (I think) I am pretty sure that the game from the previous patch just started to recognize the guns as a legit weapon and the 3rd DCL patch just didn't filter out the recognized mods and so the mods got genorated by themselves.

Drop locations, or what's not necessary to list
While I feel it's fine to list Crawmerax as a possible source of pearlescent weapons, do we really need to list every single place somebody has found one? I'm pretty sure that any enemy has a chance to drop one, even though it's a very small chance. However, what I don't know (and haven't seen any information on) is if pearlescents drop outside of DLC3. Does anyone have (documented) evidence of this? Furiant 17:16, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
See, that right there. "seems to be" - that means you're not certain. I'm the same way. I'm "pretty sure" they only drop in T-Bone Junction and beyond, but I can't say for sure. I do know they won't drop if you don't have the DLC installed, seeing as the weapon parts are coded into the DLC files and not patch 1.3.0, but I think there's a slight chance you could find them during the rest of the game, or even in Jakob's Cove. But right now all the people that farm for items are focusing on Crawmerax and the Armory, so we'll have to wait for any kind of results. Furiant 17:26, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
It will be interesting to see. Considering the level cap is coded into the new DLC but reaches beyond, it seems logical to assume that a Pearlescent could drop anywhere. That said, with the level scaling issues that Borderlands is currently suffering from outside of General Knoxx... Would you really want one to drop? AVRakk3187 18:13, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
After Installing Secret Armory, I did about 30 New Haven Chest runs in order to get my guns up to the caliber I would need in order to finish it. I did them on a level 52 Hunter, (farmed Eridian Promontory for a few levels, but had a lot of trouble with the Lances for whatever reason), and I didn't find a single Pearlescent gun.
I believe the only place it is possible outside of DLC3 would be The Underdome; whereas, it is the only other place that scales the enemies up to lvl 61. Now, I cannot confirm this but i believe its the only other logical location for them to drop. However, I don't think the drop rate would make it very likely to happen, even though it may be possible. - SpAzTaRd 19:41, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
My question, however, have any besides the ones listed on the Wiki Article been found, or is this all we're given for now.? (Obviously I don't mean the stats, I mean actual different weapons)Reginal 19:24, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
AVRakk: personally, I would LOVE to find a pearlescent early on in the game. I always enjoyed finding a weapon that so easily outclassed everything else for at least five levels, even if I'd have to retire it soon. SpAzTaRd: the New Haven chests were scaled down with the 1.3.0 patch, as reported by Gearbox. It's possible they did this to reduce the likelihood of getting a pearlescent too easily, supported by the fact that I've done a few Haven runs and still found several Legendaries. And I discounted The Underdome simply because of how the only weapon drops done there are by Moxxi herself. and Reginal: yeah, each manufacturer only has one pearlescent right now (except Atlas, but they're pricks anyway) Furiant 21:21, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
Differences in Pearl-Named, White-Rare Pearl, and Pearlescent weaponry:To clarify the Pearl (Cyan) weapons, against the, Pearl (White Rare), and Pearl (Named) weapons.
Yeah I know its confusing but heres the difference:
- The latest addition to the game are the Pearlescent rare weapons (Cyan) which are the top of the top and available in v1.3
- Before Cyan Pearls, there were White Rares (Called Pearl back before v1.3) which are the result of a glitch when the game generates a white texted weapon with a rarity level above orange-rare. (Thanatos were White-Rare Pearl weps before 1.3 fixed this). These weapons appeared at the top of the weapon list because the game recognized their rarity level as the highest.
- Now "Pearl-Named" weapons are much different than the others. Pearl-Named weapons are more like... collectables. They are pearl-plated guns (The actual 'guns' have Pearl plated on them to make them shiney and pearly white), they can be any rarity level of weapon, and are simply an attribute added to the guns. Back in v1.0 the pearl named weapons were the rarest find possible (and still very well mite be today), finding an orange rare with "Pearl" in its name was damned near impossible, although getting green and blue pearls was still a nice find, they are considerably more common than orange and purple "Pearl-Named". Now adays, people completely overlook the pearl-named's because... well, cyan pearls, whats the point of collecting pearl-named's if you can more easily find a super-legendary cyan named weapon?
To this day (since I started borderlands on day 1 of release) I've only found 'one' orange pearl-named weapon, its an Chimera, pearl plated, looks all nice and shiney, and is much more valuable than other Chimeras of the same part quality. I've seen maybe 3-4 of these since version 1.3, one I remember being a shotgun that I completely overlooked because never use Roland and I let someone else pick it up, I never noticed it was a Orange-Pearl until I had let the other player come along and pick it up, where I then read the "So-and-So picked up ___ Pearl _____"..

How to tell if you gun is modded?
Well i've been having trouble finding out what guns of mine are modded, a friends gave me a considerable ammount of peal guns and I dropped the ones with double prefixes because they are cirtainly modded but their are others that have really good dmg ect. that may be modded but is their any way of telling whats modded and whats not, Thanks!
you can tell if a gun is modded if it does stuff that normally isn't possible. shooting 100 rockets in 1 second is never possible, especially from a pistol. if the gun shoots alot of bullet ( over 20.00 fire speed) it is modded. it also is if it shoots that much or less without having to reload. the only gun able to not need a reload is the brl hornet with dove attactment and the dove. or the chopper, but that is a different story. never ending mags, not needing to reload, and abilities of other guns makes a gun modded. a smg with a lot of damage but a small clip isn't a mag, but a smg that shoots over 9000 shots without reloading is.
er i mean mod, not mag. an smg with a small clip and huge damage isn't a mod
only because the RoF is over 20 it possibly not modded. I found a double stinger with a fire rate of 21,1 on a badass engineer while in the enclave Karamos 21:49, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
- If Pearlescent or orange weapon names appear on each others' item cards, or appear twice (name in the prefix slot as well).
- If it has a Twisted prefix and it's not an SMG.
- If the projectile count is: (not exhaustive)
- x2 but not a pistol or an SMG (Double)
- x3 but not a Hyperion Butcher
- x4 but not The Chopper or an Anarchy SMG (Double Anarchy)
- x6 but not a Jakobs Skullmasher
- x7-12 but not a shotgun (x8 Sweeper, x7/x9 for most shotguns, x10/x12 Atlas Hydra, x11 Scattergun/Shredder, x12 Matador)
- x7 but not a revolver (Masher)
- x8 but not an Eridian Thunder Storm.
- If its projectile has a trajectory but is not a Leviathan or Dahl Jackal or an Eridian weapon.
- If it shoots rockets but is not a rocket launcher or a shotgun (Carnage).
- If its dps is quite literally >9000.
Yes, it is modded. --Nagamarky 18:26, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
Chances of getting Pearlescent weapons
ok so Im playing the DLC3 and hunting craw 1 month or so. based on my experience Craw has the highest chance of getting Pearl weapons and gear than glitching the Knoxx armory. also chances of earning them is increased if you got Catalyst mod with +2 rare item find for Lillith and Survivor or Scavenger mod with +2 rare item find on Mordecai. I noticed that legendary drops (orange and yellow) are slightly increased and chances of getting pearl is increased if wearing this class mods. also I noticed that when wearing the rare item find class mod there is a small chance that Craw can drop pearl gears like 2 times in a row (yep I experienced this 2 times). however I noticed that when Craw drops a pearl weapon or gear the next time you kill it there is a high chance of him dropping craps like 1 or 2 yellow or orange item with crap stats or worst like best drop will be purple in single player and also happens in multi player (sometimes) even the number of players in game is 4. also I have a theory that 4 players in game will increase the chances of getting pearl gear when killing Craw cuz of the increased drop on orange and yellow items.
IMHO, trying to get a perlescent in singleplayer is a waste of time... my brother killed crawmerax 27 times and nothing (playing with Roland). Based on his experience, I didn`t bother with craw at all. Went through areas thick with crimson lance, going both for chests and badasses. And nothing, even though I`m playing the DLC3 on playthrough 2 for 2 weeks now (as Lilith with +2 find rare items Catalyst COM).
Then, today, I went with my brother through the armory in LAN, for the first time in playthrough 2. It was slow getting there in LAN (3-4 months, hard to find time between his school and my college) but it payed out. Got meself a Jakobs Bessie, lvl 53, from crimson lance chest. First pearlescent I have ever seen on my computer!
Bottom line, find yourself someone to play with in LAN or on the net, and chances are, pearlescents will come by sooner, rather then later.Gunnut 16:20, November 17, 2010 (UTC)
Well I killed craw 17 times in a row to level my hunter up and I got a Bessie,Aries and Serpens. I feel so lucky. Xv MusTanG vX 00:32, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
Well I killed Crawmerax arround 200 times and not a single Pearl dropped for me. I am playing Lilith and I had Catalyst mod on 1/3 of those runs (otherwise I use Specter mod to oneshot his critspots with Skullmasher). I've been playing Diablo for ages and I know what farming for anything specific is and how meaningless it can be, but I am still on the hunt. ch1zra 00:56, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
Pearlescent in PT1 possible?
experimenting on this for 2 days straight and Craw in pt1 has a possibility to drop Pearlescent items so dont believe in rumors that pearls only drop @ PT2 if you dont believe me feel free to try it your self to make things fast use a class mod with +2 rare find
On a related note, is it possible for Pearlescent to drop from Crimson chests in PT1? Most of the guns in the chests are level 30-40 ish, and I notice the article does not suggest that there is a minimum level for Pearlescent.
Okay pearlescent is completely real, any double name weapons ex. bitch bitch are old recognized mods and there are no more fake pearlescent strans floating around. PearlescentRevolver 08:06, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
- Double names are not the only indicator of a modded weapon. So mods and "fake pearlescents" are still very much "floating around". 10:04, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
Is this weired
I found 3 pearl guns cyan in 1 crawmerax playthrough 2 with my bro he didn't drop anything i saw him I found a shatered serpen twisted tsunami and a fearsome bessie and none of us know how to mod guns and never got any. Is that odd????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alfanator (talk • contribs)
- That's not odd, that's mod. Yes, they are. 12:40, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
Would it be okay if if i took out the "Pearlescents can only be found after you complete the playthrough 1 or 2" Just my hunter is level 69 on playthrough 1 (I have 2 different acounts and used my 69 siren to get him that level then went singleplayer with him) and I got an and anshin rose and torgue under taker and im only on Sledge:Battle for the badlands. I focus more on the dlc's then the actual game cause I've finished it like 7 times already. Bioshock2K Bioshock2K
- yes, however, i would like to suggest adding "or reached level 61" as i believe that is the gearbot's actual requirement. word it how you like and thank you for discussing the change first. 20:56, March 15, 2011 (UTC)
The page on Pearlescents says that the rate of drop increases when playthrough two is complete, is this just refering to the original game (as it's stated) or should all missions be complete, I only ask because I have a Siren with everything but It's Like Christmas done, and I was wondering if the fact that the misssion isn't done would affect the drop rateSaint Ran Gee 14:35, March 25, 2011 (UTC)Saint Ran Gee
- completion _should_ apply to main missions. most users report results after credits roll on destroyer and dlc3. you should be ok with xmas. backup your save and compare, let me know if im wrong.
15:08, March 25, 2011 (UTC)
- Will do, however I've just had an influx of pearls doing something i haven't tried before, what I've been doing is killing craw but leaving all the weapons that aren't stronger than the ones I have, which at this point is all of them. The last 6 times I've left all the weapons about the 15-20th times I kill him he's dropped a pearl, this has not worked once, I've found an ironclad, omega, 2xares, and undertaker. If anyone has time to kill I'd like to see if it works for others as well, however it should be noted that after that many kills and having that many weapons laying on the field the lag is brutal but other than the one time I've always got one pearl. I used my Siren with a +2rare find split screen with a soldier, so in short I haven't finsihed xmas yet but when this becaomes too boring I'll let you know for sure--Saint Ran Gee 20:51, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
- ^^^This what I do, though not as many times in a row. I only go up to 12 - 13. Before the Level patch I was getting one Pearlecent on average every 30 - 40 kills on Craw. Since the patch, I have not had such good luck, but I also dont farm as often as i did back then either. -- 21:04, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
I havea ARC 490 PEARLHAVAC. Damage 309 plus 73% plus 40 mag size plus 37% recoil reduction plus 61% fire rate with a Chapion Atlas Enhancement mod 40 % wepon damage and this combo makes light work of crawmerax. are these rare? —Preceding unsigned comment added by XWH0 DARES WINS (talk • contribs)
- That is not a pearlescent weapon. A pearlescent weapon is indicated by cyan rarity color, not by the word "Pearl" in the name. A "Pearl" anything is just an Atlas weapon with material3. Also, it's called "AR490 Pearl Havoc", and it is an above average machine gun. Logisim 17:52, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
Level 68 max
Alright, there are too many times I've had to explain why pearls cannot be level 69.
The list of enemies that can spawn pearls: Duncanfogg @ gbxforums. In addition to enemies, pearls can also come from crimson lance chests. These are the same as the ones listed on the main page.
However, none of those things can drop level 69 loot. Only vendor item-of-the-day, loot midgets, and maybe something else I'm forgetting right now can spawn level 69 gear. This list is mutually exclusive with the above list of pearl-producing sources. Logisim 17:38, September 1, 2011 (UTC)
It is possible to get a Level 69 Pearlescent, IF(and it is a big if, I will admit) what I read is correct, and that Ajax, Kyros, and Typhon can spawn wielding a Pearlescent weapon, instead of their pre-defined unique weapons. Then in Playthrough 2.5, that weapon would be Level 69, just like all unique weapons dropped by bosses. This would therefore mean that a legitimate Level 69 Pearlescent weapon is out there, waiting to be found. If they cannot spawn with anything other than their pre-defined unique weapons, then that entire theory goes out the window. PyroMerc 14:05, September 6, 2011 (UTC)
Yes as stated by Logisim Duncanfogg @ gbxforums (READ IT!) 69 are not possible and Kyros/co. wielding them is even more outrageous. Unless solid proof as vid's or pic's are present to support this statement of course. I... I am the King! 17:47, September 6, 2011 (UTC)
The page stated that it was possible for them to have Pearlescent weapons, as such, I formed my theory. Since that has been proven wrong, and not by any of you I might add, then I agree there are no Level 69 Pearlescent weapons, not legitimately anyway, there's always mod software. Also, for the record, I still find trusting a blog posting a bit counterintuitive. I still think of blogs as the cesspools of the internet. PyroMerc 20:01, September 6, 2011 (UTC)
Who drops better pearlescent weapons Crawmerax, BadAss enemies, or Crimson Lance Chest ? P.S. Who has a better chance to drop pearlescent weapons Bandits or Crimson Lance ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs)
Drops are random. You may have better luck one place than the other. I, for one, have had better luck more often with Craw. Others i know say the Armory. Same goes for who drops stuff. Its just luck of the draw. -- 02:28, January 27, 2012 (UTC)

Pearlescent drops in Borderlands 2
Is it true that they will only drop in UVHM? Or can they drop from any Badass in any playthrough? Because I'm getting my butt handed to me in UVHM and cannot kill a Badass, unless he is slagged :D Auntarie (talk) 09:54, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
Only in UVHM. However, they don't JUST drop from Badasses. They can drop from any loot source, anytime. TheLegendary-to-Pearl ratio is around 30:1 (Still needs looking into), while the ratio for Badasses is 10-15:1. Lavisdragoon (talk) 10:02, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
Ideal Farming Grounds (Borderlands 2)
I am just curious...which are the best farming grounds for Pearlescent Weapons in Borderlands 2? My 1st idea was Frostburn Canyon, because of the "sure-to-spawn" Badass Psychos. Leafless (talk) 04:36, April 7, 2013 (UTC)
Which badasses count as human for pearlescent drops?
I just have to ask this, since I killed around 1000 Badass-Psychos and 800 Badass-Pirates in UVHM and haven't found any pearlescent gun so far (but 2 orange guns)Leafless (talk) 12:26, April 21, 2013 (UTC)
I'd say what you're killing is counted as human, but you have to remember, Pearls are even more rare than Oranges, and Pearls don't have a dedicated drop source (Mercy for Infinity, Tector Hodunk for Slagga). However, there is a way to not only farm for oranges, but have a higher chance to get Ancient relics and Pearls. With the mission Doctor's Orders active, go to the room in the Wildlife Preserve just before Bloodwing's holding cell. There are four boxes in this room almost guaranteed to spawn loot midgets, or in UVHM, Legendary Loot Midgets. These are almost guaranteed to drop oranges, and have a higher chance to drop Pearls. Hope this helps. Mech-Romance (talk) 13:58, April 21, 2013 (UTC)
