Electric Banjo is a legendary artifact in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Eridian. The Electric Banjo is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from the Psychobillies located in Ambermire on Eden-6.

Special Effect

We never could have foreseen the success. – 20% chance for each shot landed to arc electricity to a nearby enemy, dealing shock damage. Increased shock damage and resistance.

Usage & Description



  • The artifact is a reference to the Ukulele item in the Risk of Rain video game series.
  • The flavor text is from a quote by Ted Dwane of the band Mumford and Sons, regarding their shockingly popular album "Babel", containing music played on a banjo. "We never could have foreseen the success of 'Babel.' It's not like banjo records were soaring up the charts, you know."
