Hex is a legendary grenade mod in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Atlas. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Sky Bullies located in The Anvil on Eden-6.

Special Weapon Effects

Keeper of the stars, I hope to never find... – Homing grenade that targets the closest enemy and generates an elemental beam to them.

Usage & Description


  • The Hex has 5 possible prefixes: Cloning, MIRV, MIRV-Tacular, Mitosis, and Recurring.
    • MIRV causes the grenade to split into 3 on impact.
    • MIRV-Tacular causes the grenade to split into 6 on impact
    • Cloning causes the grenade to split into 2 shortly after being thrown.
    • Mitosis causes the grenade to split into 3 shortly after being thrown.
    • Recurring has the MIRV and Cloning effects.
  • The recurring version has slightly higher base grenade damage than the MIRV-Tacular version, but since grenade count and elemental damage / chance are the same, this makes very little difference in overall damage.
  • A patch on 2019-10-24 changed the elemental beam damage to no longer count as splash damage for the purposes of skills such as Means of Destruction.
