Seraph (sometimes referred to as pink) is an item rarity first released with Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. Seraph items are between unique and legendary items, with impressive stats but with some form of drawback such as low accuracy or projectile speed.
Seraph items are obtained as:
- drops from Seraph Guardians, mainly in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, but they can be acquired in Normal Mode and True Vault Hunter Mode as well.
- a purchase from Seraph Vendors in any playthrough. Seraph vendors are found in the town of Oasis, the Badass Crater of Badassitude, inside the Aegrus Sophisticates' Lodge in Hunter's Grotto and in Flamerock Refuge. Seraph Vendors accept only rare Seraph Crystals (see below) for their goods.
Borderlands 2 DLCs introduced the following Seraph guardians:
- Hyperius the Invincible and Master Gee the Invincible, from Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty;
- Pete the Invincible/Ultra Invincible, from Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage;
- Voracidous the Invincible, from Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt;
- Ancient Dragons of Destruction from Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep.
Seraph crystals are the form of currency used to purchase Seraph items from the Seraph Vendor. They are similar in shape and size to crystalisk crystals, but are Pink in color.
Seraph crystals are acquired by:
- killing Seraph Guardians in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
- playing the Tiny Tina's Lootsplosion Slot Machine in the tavern in Flamerock Refuge in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. Three Seraph crystals are obtained if the wheels show three twenty-sided dice and the player rolls an 18 or 19. This is the only means of acquiring Seraph crystals in Normal Mode or True Vault Hunter mode.
Seraph weapons, shields and grenade mods cost 120 Seraph crystals each. Relics only cost 50 crystals. As reference, each Seraph guardian drops on average 10 crystals per kill.
Items which are listed as dropping from a specific boss below are also available from the appropriate Seraph Vendor in Normal Mode and True Vault Hunter Mode.

Seraph Grenade Mods
- DLCs are supposed to be self-contained modules to the base game, so Seraph items in one DLC will not be for sale in another DLC Seraph vendors, nor droppable from the Seraph guardian(s) in another DLC. Players cannot use Seraph items associated with a DLC until that corresponding DLC has been purchased. The common currency, however, is still Seraph Crystals.
- There is an unobtainable Seraph weapon manufactured by Torgue called the ERROR MESSAGE. It is a reskinned version of the Ahab carried by Master Gee The Invincible, and its red text reads "THIS GUN SHOULD NEVER DROP".
