Just in case you haven’t gotten enough Borderlands 3, you’ll be glad to know that the Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC is now live across all platforms. You’ll also be glad to know that the new loot and weapons you can get from the DLC are pretty great as well. Here’s how to get the Ion Laser Legendary SMG in Borderlands 3 Moxxi’s Heist.
How to Get the Ion Laser Legendary SMG in Borderlands 3 Moxxi’s Heist
The Ion Laser is one of the brand new Legendary weapons added to Borderlands 3 with the DLC release, and from what we’ve seen so far, this is definitely one of the weapons you’ll want to keep an eye out for.
Unfortunately, it would appear that you do need to have the DLC installed if you want to get it, as DLC weapons seem to only drop in the casino and aren’t available in any other areas in the game. Once you have the DLC installed, you can essentially get the gun from any loot source including killing enemies, bosses, and opening chests.
As always, you’ll want to activate Mayhem Mode or play on True Vault Hunter Mode to increase your chances of getting Legendary drops. Again, this will make enemies significantly tougher especially if you’re on Mayhem Mode, so make sure you’re well-equipped to take on the increased challenge.
Borderlands 3 Ion Laser Perks
Just like the rest of the weapons and gear drops in Borderlands 3, your stats on the Ion Laser will be random and dependent on what level you were when it dropped for you. However, a few things will remain the same.
The Ion Laser will be able to swap between two elements (for us, it was Corrosive and Incendiary, though you can also get a Cryo and Shock variant). In addition to that, it fires out ammo as a stream of burst laser, allowing it to deal massive amounts of DPS in one go, which makes it pretty powerful and invaluable to elemental builds.
To recap, here’s how to get the Ion Laser Legendary SMG in Borderlands 3 Moxxi’s Heist:
- Make sure you have the Moxxi’s Heist DLC installed.
- Farm the enemies within the casino, as the gun only seems to drop in the DLC area and not anywhere else in the game.
Activate Mayhem Mode or play on True Vault Hunter Mode to increase your Legendary drop rates.
