The Leech is a unique pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Vladof. It is obtained from the mission Taking Flight.

Special Weapon Effects

Today, a new emperor must seize the throne. – All parts are fixed. Always Incendiary. Always spawns with a double magazine and melee accessory. Alternate firing mode fires a taser that ignites enemies and heals the character.

Usage & Description

The Leech can pass as a purple rarity Vladof pistol that is guaranteed to spawn with an incendiary capacitor. It is effective for a few story missions after it is obtained due to the amount of fleshy enemies the player will encounter.


  • As with other taser underbarrel weapons, it benefits from Moze's Redistribution skill. If shot on critical spots, it can achieve a excessive amount of critical hits, and if aimed near targets, it can affect an entire group of enemies.


  • The flavor text is a quote from the 1982 film The Dark Crystal. The quote is said by the narrator in the opening of the movie.
