The Hellwalker is a legendary shotgun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Road Dog located in The Splinterlands on Pandora.

Special Weapon Effects

So, my demons. Your time has come. – Always incendiary. Projectile spread assumes a pentagram pattern.

Usage & Description

The Hellwalker has high damage and a short reload, but low accuracy, indicative of the weapon's intended use as a mobile hip-fire shotgun. This coupled with its high knockback makes it extremely useful for taking down unarmored targets successively, though the high damage will still punch through shields effectively.


  • The Hellwalker always spawns with the "Speedloadn'" prefix.
  • Hellwalker is extremely useful with FL4K's Fade Away and Leave No Trace skills. As every pellet will score a critical hit during Fade Away, it is possible to keep shooting and deal large amounts of damage without reloading when the skill is active.


  • The Hellwalker makes heavy electric guitar noises when fired and picked up.
  • The weapon is a reference to the Super shotgun from the Doom franchise.
    • The sound effects that play when the weapon is used are from the Doom (2016) soundtrack BFG Division.
  • The flavor text is the first line of lyrics from the TesseracT song Concealing Fate, Part 2: Deception
  • Once the barrel of the Hellwalker starts smoking, it remains so for an exceedingly long time
