For the legendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 2, see Lyudmila.

Lyuda is a legendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Vladof. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Tremendous Rex. The Lyuda can also be obtained by completing all of Zer0's Target of Opportunity missions.

Special Weapon Effects

Man Killer. – Spawns two additional projectiles, one on either side of the main projectile, after a certain distance. These additional projectiles will "fan out" from the main projectile.

Usage & Description

Due to the way the additional projectiles spawn and travel, the Lyuda is best used at medium range or against large targets, where all the projectiles have the best chance of striking their target.

With its rotating barrel, high fire rate, and multiple bullets per round, the Lyuda functions more as a minigun than a traditional sniper rifle.
