Star Helix is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Dahl. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Power Troopers located in Atlas HQ on Promethea.

Special Weapon Effects

The stars are better off without us. – Fires 2 additional projectiles that follow the main projectile in a horizontal oscillating path.

Usage & Description

The Star Helix fires 2 additional projectiles per shot that will meet the central projectile at certain distances. Making the most of the additional projectiles requires correct spacing from the target. In close-range combat or against large targets, the projectile pattern is of less concern as all three shots are likely to hit.

The name, Star Helix, is also a reference to Star Helix Security, a private security firm that exists within the show's universe.
