Ember's Purge is a legendary submachine gun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Maliwan. It is obtained as a reward for completing all of the Pieces of Résistance challenges.

Special Weapon Effects

She's the only one who knows what it is to burn. – Always incendiary. When the projectile hits an enemy, it has a high chance to produce a pool of lava there that lasts for about 4 seconds.

Usage & Description

Ember's Purge is an extremely effective weapon against flesh-based enemies as the lava pool effect can be used to weaken multiple enemies at the same time or to deal additional burn damage to a single enemy. This comes at the cost of limited effectiveness against enemies with armor or shields with its fixed element and lack of a dual-element mode.


  • The lava pool does no damage to the character.


  • The flavor text is a reference to the 2002 What It Is to Burn debut album by American post-hardcore band Finch.
