Crossroad is a legendary submachine gun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Hyperion. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Katagawa Jr. located in Atlas HQ on Promethea.

Special Weapon Effects

Open the gate for me. – Fires 3 projectiles per shot. Consumes 2 ammo per shot. Fires in bursts of 6.

Usage & Description

With its projectile count and relatively high damage, the Crossroad is capable of competing with, and often outperforming shotguns in close-quarters combat. This comes at the cost of a huge ammo burn, as the Crossroad is only capable of firing in bursts and will use a large amount of ammo per pull of the trigger.

The Crossroad is best paired with Amara utilizing skills like Tempest, Personal Space, Samsara, or Forceful Expression, as she can take advantage of the elemental damage and projectiles to destroy enemies with shields or armor, regardless of the weapon's element. It is also effective in the hands of Moze and FL4K, who can compensate for the weapon's ammo use with ammo-regenerating skills.


  • At release, The Crossroad originally fired 4 projectiles per shot, hence the name. A projectile was removed and the accuracy and handling values lowered due to higher damage potential than other SMGs.


  • The flavor text references "Papa Legba, open the gate for me", a phrase commonly used to begin Voodoo ceremonies or prayers.
