Gargoyle is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by COV. It can be obtained from any loot source in Bounty of Blood but has an increased chance to drop from Dickon Goyle in Bloodsun Canyon.

Special Weapon Effects

Defender of the night. – Always corrosive. Has a chance to fire arcing corrosive blobs in addition to its regular projectiles.

Usage & Description

The Gargoyle is an extremely powerful pistol, able to quickly dispose of even non-armored enemies. Its power resides in not only its high bullet DPS but also the corrosive blobs it fires which deal heavily increased damage. Its high ammo consumption rate, however, limits its effectiveness over extended periods of time, making it most suitable as a backup weapon for taking out enemies with high health.


  • Gargoyle's ammo consumption will be 1 more than the number of pellets it shoots.


  • The name and flavor text are a reference to the animated TV show Gargoyles. The flavor text is a variation of a line from the show's opening, "We are defenders of the night".
