Blood-Starved Beast is a legendary submachine gun exclusive to the Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck DLC for Borderlands 3 and is manufactured by Dahl. It can only be obtained from Evil Lilith located in Castle Crimson.

Special Weapon Effects

Chaos, or some say Chaosm – Increased stats. Fires 2 projectiles at once. Shoots small energy orbs that penetrate enemies. When piercing through an enemy, orbs have a chance to explode and deal splash damage of the weapon's element.

Usage & Description

The Blood-Starved Beast is commonly regarded as one of the best SMGs in Borderlands 3. This is both due to its high damage output, and the lack of any gimmick that would require the player to build around. It is especially potent on Moze, who greatly benefits from the splash damage.


  • The weapon can spawn as a x3 variant, which means it fires an extra projectile, at the cost of 20% damage and double ammo consumption. Because the weapon only gains 50% more projectiles at the cost of double ammo consumption and 20% less damage, this variant is less effective then other, similar weapons.
  • The weapon is currently bugged and benefits from assault rifle damages bonuses rather than SMG damage bonuses.


  • The name is a reference to the enemy of the same name in the 2015 video game Bloodborne.
