Hunter-Seeker is a legendary grenade mod in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Tediore. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Grip tightly. – Launches a drone that homes in and shoots at enemies, dealing gun damage. Greatly reduced blast damage.

Usage & Description

The Hunter-Seeker's drones make it less of a grenade and more of a Tediore turret; most of the grenade's damage is achieved with the drone's bullets. As a result the Hunter-Seeker should be used as a medium to long-range weapon to give it more time to shoot before exploding.

The Hunter-Seeker's unique strength is that the bullets fired from the grenade count as gun damage, and thus synergize with every skill, class mod, and artifact that uses gun damage. For example, the Pearl of Ineffable knowledge will gains stacks from the damage dealt by the Hunter-Seeker.

Notes

  • FL4K's Megavore skill will cause the shots fired by the Hunter-Seeker to deal critical hits. This can synergize with their Head Count and Leave No Trace skills.
  • Using the Hunter-Seeker in conjunction with a St4ckbot class mod is not recommended as it will remove the class mod's stacks.
    • A Hunter-Seeker thrown by FL4K's WAR Loader will also reset the stack.

Trivia

  • The name and flavor text are a reference to the novel Dune, and a passage in which a character tries to catch a drone which is hunting him, saying "I must grip tightly."
