Hornet is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Dahl. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Fear the swarm! – Always corrosive. Fires a 6-round burst and deals splash damage. Alternative firing mode only toggles zoom magnification.

Usage & Description

As the Hornet's only firing mode is a six-round burst, there is a likelihood of wasting ammo since there is no option to fire single rounds. This disadvantage is mitigated by its high damage for a pistol, both in elemental effect and damage per bullet.


  • The Hornet cannot fire in any fashion other than its six-round burst.
