A broken smile beneath her whispered wings. – Always cryo. Critical hits ricochet to nearby enemies and leave a sticky bomb that explodes on reload. Extremely high damage.
Usage & Description
The Clairvoyance deals more damage then any other assault rifle in the game, with other strong stats to back it up. Because of the sticky bombs and high critical hit damage, it's critical to aim for as many headshots as possible while using this weapon. Critical hits also reflect to nearby enemies, which create even more sticky bombs, making the Clairvoyance an excellent crowd control weapon. However, as it can only spawn in cryo, this means that it is ineffective against shielded enemies such as many found in the Guardian Takedown. This conversely makes it very strong with an Ice Breaker artifact or a general cryo-focused build.
The Clairvoyance is strongest on Zane and FL4K, with it being so effective on FL4K that it could be considered as one of their strongest weapons. Zane's many cryo-focused skills and bonus gun damage skills can allow the Clairvoyance to tear through enemies with ease. FL4K, on the other hand, can utilize various crit focused skills such as Megavore and Leave No Trace along with many crit damage bonuses to reach extremely high damage outputs and clear even the hardest enemies in the game.
Shots by the Clairvoyance resemble rocket-powered grappling hooks.
If multiple sticky bombs are stacked, all of the bombs will detonate simultaneously.
The explosions from the sticky bombs do not count as splash damage.
Unlike most other weapons in Borderlands 3, different parts radically influence the stats of a Clairvoyance. It can spawn with anywhere from 8 to 24 bullets in the magazine, can be fully automatic, or can spawn with a Masher accessory granting it an extra 3 pellets, at the cost of consuming more ammo per shot and a reduction in all other stats. Note that the Masher and Gatlin' accessories are mutually exclusive.
