Starkiller is a unique pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Maliwan. It is obtained from the mission Space-Laser Tag.

Special Weapon Effects

Has to have some kind of thermal oscillator. – Always incendiary. Increased elemental effect chance. Reduced recoil and base damage. Fires a continuous beam when fully charged up.

Usage & Description

The Starkiller is incredibly powerful against fleshy targets due to its stats. It can easily deal with most fleshy enemies in the game for several levels after it is obtained, though it suffers heavily against armored and shielded targets.

As the Starkiller always spawns with incendiary damage, it is a suitable weapon for Amara when using an elemental damage character build, or Moze when using an incendiary build.


  • The Starkiller has a unique animated skin on parts of the weapon that resembles the surface of a fiery planet.
