The Dictator is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Vladof. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Agonizer 9000 located in Guts of Carnivora on Pandora.

Special Weapon Effects

Let them hate me, so that they will but fear me. – Fixed bipod attachment. Fires three bullets in a horizontal line in rifle mode, seven in bipod mode.

Usage & Description

The wide spread of the bullets can make it effective at taking out large crowds of enemies. At close range, enemies can be hit by multiple bullets. This allows it to deal huge damage to huge targets. However, at long range the bullet spread makes the weapon quite ineffective at taking down single enemies.


  • The spread of the projectiles is very wide while firing from the hip, but tightens considerably while aiming down sights.


  • The name and flavor text refer to a quote by Roman emperor Caligula.
