For the class mod in Borderlands 2, see Sickle.

Sickle is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Vladof. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Swing the sickle! – Fires projectiles in the shape of a sickle. Reduced fire rate. No Alternative Fire mode.

Usage & Description

The Sickle's special effect makes it a shotgun that draws from the assault rifle ammo pool, resulting in a massive ammo count for a shotgun. This comes at the cost of the fixed sickle-shaped projectile pattern and the weapon's slow fire rate. The projectile pattern makes aiming difficult and limits the weapon's utility only as a close-range weapon or against large enemies.

The Sickle is largely unremarkable as it can be outperformed by other assault rifles and shotguns.
