Damned is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Vladof. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from The Agonizer 9000 located in Guts of Carnivora on Pandora.

Special Weapon Effects

Well, I'll be... – Increased damage. Replaces the Alternative Fire mode with a reflective shield that activates upon aiming down sights. No movement speed penalty when aiming down sights.

Usage & Description

Despite being a Vladof weapon, the Damned should be treated more like a Hyperion weapon. Because the shield requires aiming down the sights, how it can be used is largely dependent on what type of sights are spawned on the gun. A scope is suitable for long range, while iron sights are recommended for close to medium range encounters.

As the Damned has no other defining characteristics compared to equivalent Vladof assault rifles, it should be considered whether the shield is a better option than an alternative underbarrel attachment.



  • The name and red text refers to the phrase "well I'll be damned," which is used when witnessing something unusual or surprising--in this case, a Vladof weapon with a Hyperion shield.
