Bloom is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs.
It is exclusive to the Bounty of Blood DLC for Borderlands 3, and has an increased chance to drop from the Ruiner in the Crater's Edge.

Special Weapon Effects

A thorn by any other name would probably still hurt. – Can be charged up to fire the entire magazine with rapid automatic fire. Shots ricochet once off the environment.

Usage & Description


  • The burst count is based on how long the weapon was charged and how many shots were in the magazine when the burst was used. Ammo regeneration that occurs during the burst will not extend the burst and will be added to the magazine as remaining ammo.
  • The gun always drops with fixed parts, including 2.2x sights and a +60% melee attachment.
  • The weapon always drops with fixed stats. They are only variable by the weapon’s level and the mayhem level in which it is dropped.


The flavor text is a reference to a line in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, ‘a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.’ The subject of the original quote is also the thing with which the original wielder of The Bloom in the game’s narrative, the Butcher Rose, shares her name.
