For the similarly named legendary shotgun in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, see Flakker.

Flakker is a legendary shotgun manufactured by Torgue in Borderlands 3. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Manvark located in Konrad's Hold.

Special Weapon Effects

Flak the world. – Shoots slow, invisible rounds that create a series of explosions. Consumes 5 ammo per shot.[1]

Description & Usage

The gun initially fires three (as listed on the weapon card) projectiles, which may ricochet off objects and enemies if they are close enough to the original firing position and will not deal damage during this period of time. After flying for one second, the rounds generate a series of explosions at their current position while flying (the first explosions generated are twice the size of all following explosions) before disappearing after another second. Each explosion does an amount of damage equal to what is listed on the weapon card; because the initial projectiles are the source of the explosions, their disappearance means the range on the weapon is limited.
