Usage & Description

Null Pointer has overall improved stats over typical Hyperion sniper rifles of same rarity, but otherwise has no unique mechanism. Regardless, its high stats will usually cause it to outperform most sniper rifles for several levels to come.


  • Two Null Pointers can be obtained in a single playthrough. One is given by Zer0 and one more is guaranteed to spawn in one of the white weapon chests in Maliwan's weapon depot during the mission Hostile Takeover. Each Null Pointer's stats will be completely identical aside from its damage stat, which may vary.
  • Null Pointers can never spawn with an Anointement.


  • The Null Pointer is based off Zer0's color scheme and his faceplate's holographic emoticons.
