The Lead Sprinkler is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs. The Lead Sprinkler is obtained from Billy on Eden-6.

Special Weapon Effects

Splish splash – Bodyshots spawn a single explosive pellet arcing downwards from the enemy. Headshots spawn 3 explosive pellets.

Usage & Description

The Lead Sprinkler is very effective at crowd control as the explosive pellets can easily clear out groups of enemies. It is less effective against standalone enemies as the spread of the explosive pellets is not precise and may not always hit, especially against fast-moving opponents.


  • Bullets fired from this gun are not hitscan and possess a significant drop, requiring the player to aim more carefully in combat.
