FL4K (self-named by shortening a meaningless 512 alphanumeric characters long factory designator) is a playable character in Borderlands 3, appearing as the Beastmaster[1] class.



FL4K's Action Skills are Fade Away, Rakk Attack! and Gamma Burst [1].

Fade Away

FL4K cloaks, turning invisible. FL4K can fire three shots while cloaked, and each shot is automatically a Critical Hit. While cloaked, FL4K gains increased movement speed and health regeneration.

  • Critical Damage: +20%
  • Movement Speed: +25%
  • Health Regeneration: +3% Max Health/sec
  • Duration: 15 seconds
  • Cooldown: 45 seconds

Rakk Attack!

FL4K sends forward 2 rakk to dive-bomb enemies. This skill has multiple charges.

  • Damage: 35
  • Cooldown: 18 seconds

Gamma Burst

FL4K creates a rift at a target location, teleporting their pet through the rift and doing radiation damage to nearby enemies. Additionally, FL4K's pet becomes irradiated, growing in size and dealing bonus radiation damage when it attacks.

Using Gamma Burst while FL4K's pet is downed or dead will revive the pet at the targeted location with 30% of its health, but will double Gamma Burst's cooldown time.

  • Damage: 56
  • Duration: 20 seconds
  • Cooldown: 30 seconds

In addition to possessing three action skills, FL4K has the ability to command one of three Pets to fight and travel with them.

The Pets will stay with FL4K until they die, with the latter initiating a cooldown period before a new Pet spawns. Alternatively, FL4K can tame an enemy that is the same species as their equipped Pet which bypasses the cooldown and instantly grants FL4K a companion[2].

Jabber Sidekick

FL4K is joined by a jabber that is armed with a pistol. While accompanied by the jabber, FL4K's movement speed is increased.

Holding the Action Skill key issues an attack command where the jabber throws a radiation barrel at enemies.

  • Movement Speed: +5.0%

Spiderant Centurion

FL4K is joined by a spiderant companion that imparts FL4K with health regeneration.

Holding the Action Skill key issues an attack command where the spiderant charges into enemies.

  • Health Regeneration: +1.0% of Max Health/sec

Guard Skag

FL4K is joined by a skag companion that increases FL4K's damage while it is with them.

Holding the Action Skill key issues an attack command where the skag vomits acid onto enemies.

  • Damage: +5.0%
