The Duc is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs. The Duc is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Fire that off to me real quick. – Increased damage. Bullets stick to foes and explode after a short delay. Critical hits ricochet 2 bullets at the nearest enemy.

Usage & Description

The Duc's bullets stick to targets in a manner similar to Torgue weapons. This, coupled with the high raw damage output of Jakobs, makes it an all-around powerful pistol. It is also forgiving to poor accuracy as the bullets will still explode and deal damage to nearby enemies even if the shot misses.

This gun pairs very well with FL4K's Fade Away Action Skill and the Guerrillas in the Mist augment. When the skill is activated, every hit will be a critical, making every bullet ricochet 2 more, potentially clearing whole areas in seconds.


  • The Duc's projectiles travel at normal bullet velocity but have similar sticking properties to Torgue sticky rockets.
  • The Duc can score two critical hits with each shot; on the initial impact and when the projectile explodes.
    • The first hit will trigger skills that rely on critical hits but the second hit does not.
    • The Duc's damage is divided roughly 20% / 80% between the hit and the explosion respectively.
