Love Drill is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs.
It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Eleanor located in Heart's Desire on Xylourgos.

Special Weapon Effects

...till death do us depart. – Has a 20% chance to deal double damage as shock. Critical hits return 1 bullet to the magazine. Significantly increased critical damage.

Usage & Description

The Love Drill can be considered an amped up version of the Unforgiven, as it shares its extremely high critical damage but not its firing speed penalty. Despite having a lower critical damage multiplier, the Love Drill can tear through enemies with large critical spots since crits will return a bullet to the magazine. This is further enhanced by the gun's chance of getting doubled shock damage, giving it shield-depleting properties.

The Love Drill is more limited against regular enemies, as it still has the heavy recoil of a standard Jakobs firearm, and its unique sight also makes it difficult to aim accurately. This makes it more effective for close encounters compared to the Unforgiven, which can excel at medium range.


  • This legendary weapon is part of a pair of weapons, the other being the Love Drill rewarded at the end of the DLC's storyline. It is differentiated by its rarity and weapon skin, and is considered the superior of the pair, as it has the chance to deal double shock damage.
  • FL4K's Fade Away synergises worse with this weapon than what might be expected: Although "Critical!" pops up on any Fade Away hit, the damage bonus of Fade Away is only based on gun damage and ignores any critical damage bonuses.
  • The Love Drill has a unique sight in the shape of a hovering diamond. The bullets still fire from the iron sights when zoomed in, instead of the diamond.


  • The flavor text refers to the vows said during a wedding ceremony. The text is the second half of the quote, with the full quote being "To have and to hold... till death do us depart".
  • The Love Drill is one of the few weapons that shares the exact same name as another weapon in one game (that being its pairing).
