Monocle is a legendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs.

Special Weapon Effects

One is enough. – ~500% critical hit damage. Extremely high weapon zoom. Increased weapon accuracy, handling, and reload speed. Reduced base damage.

Usage & Description

The Monocle is a powerful critical hit weapon, but should only be used as a long-range weapon as its increased zoom can make it difficult to use in close-range combat and the reduced base damage makes it less effective with non-critical hits.

Notes

  • FL4K can make good use of this weapon for bursts of high damage with the Fade Away skill. Since every shot fired while it is active is a guaranteed critical hit, along with the Jakobs perk of a ricochet from a critical hit, this weapon can achieve massive single-shot damage in tight crowds of enemies.
  • Monocle have another hidden effect. Scoring critical hit while scoped - will trigger double critical. That is initial damage will be multiplied by 5 once, and then by 5 again. In total tremendous 2500% critical damage. However second crit will work only if you actually hit weak spot of the enemy (usually head). Skill-triggered bodyshot crits from FL4K's skills (even when scoped) will result in only initial 500% crit. Providing that world modifiers doesn't penalize crit damage, normal damage and/or sniper rifle damage - it possible to score over 100,000 damage in single crit, sometimes one-shoting badasses even on Mayhem 3 mode.
