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.

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

This rifle is fairly simple to use because of its projectile pattern. At close ranges, it can land all of the bullets on one critical hit spot if they are large enough, or be used to hit multiple critical hit spots on larger enemies.


  • The spread of the projectiles is very wide while firing from the hip, but tightens considerably while aiming down sights.
  • The projectiles deal the same amount of damage in both modes.


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