Faisor 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 Atomic located in Tazendeer Ruins on Nekrotafeyo.

Special Weapon Effects

Set Faisers to kill. – Fires elemental bolts. Increased damage. Fixed melee attachment. Always spawns with underbarrel shotgun.

Usage & Description

The Faisor functions like any conventional Vladof assault rifle and should be used as such. The Faisor is guaranteed to spawn as an elemental weapon and shoots energy bolts instead of bullets, which limits its utility for long-range combat as the elemental bolts have slower projectile speed. However, the increased damage and guaranteed shotgun attachment make it a powerful close-range weapon.


  • Hotfix 3/5/2020: Shotgun pellet count increased from 6 to 8. Patch notes indicate increased weapon damage, although this does not seem to appear in-game.


  • The flavor text and name are a reference to the "Set Phasers to Kill" phrase from the Star Trek television series in which crew members were issued Phasers that could be set to stun or to kill.
