Proprietary License is a legendary submachine gun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Hyperion and is exclusive to the Bounty of Blood DLC. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Hydragoian located in Obsidian Forest on Gehenna.

Special Weapon Effects

A little from Column A, a little from column B. – Fires a 4-round burst. Shots that hit enemies leave a sticky bomb that detonates after a short while. Critical hits cause shots to ricochet.

Usage & Description


  • As the Proprietary License has no burst delay, firing the weapon during a burst will result in the next burst being immediately fired.


  • The name and flavor text refers to the way the gun incorporates "trademark" elements from multiple weapon brands -- Dahl's burst fire, Torgue's sticky bombs, Hyperion's converging accuracy, Jakobs' ricocheting bullets, and Maliwan's guaranteed elemental modifier.
