Ripper is a legendary submachine gun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Dahl. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Brood Mother located in The Pyre of Stars on Nekrotafeyo and from Alicritious Vanda located in the Cistern of Slaughter on Promethea.

Special Weapon Effects

They say I'm a doctor now. – Fixed melee accessory. Deals 200% gun damage to enemies that have been hit the weapon's melee. This bonus lasts for 5 seconds. Reduced base damage.

Usage & Description

The Ripper is an effective weapon for a melee-based character build with its melee and gun damage bonuses.


  • Enemies struck by the Ripper's melee have a special "bleeding" particle effect. This allows for the wielder to know when the damage buff has expired on their target.


  • The weapon's name, special effect, and flavor text are a reference to Jack the Ripper, an infamous serial killer in 1880s London. The flavor text is from the "Dear Boss" letter, allegedly written by the killer to a London news agency.
  • The Ripper's melee accessory has an animated bleeding effect.
