Borderlands 2 Legendary Weapons Guide

Borderlands 2 Legendary Weapons deal a huge punch compared to general weapons in the game. They are more accurate and enable you to apply elemental effects to take down even the most shielded and armored enemies in the Pandora wastelands.

Legendary Weapons are rare and don’t come easily, and since loot in Borderlands 2 is pretty much random, you will have to adventure through the Pandora from location to location and hope that you find these.

Each manufacturer has at least one fabled legendary weapon so that gives you an option to find a weapon of your favorite manufacturer. For more help on Borderlands 2, read our Shields, Grenades and Relics Guide.
