- For the unique shotgun in Borderlands 2, see Tidal Wave.
The Tidal Wave is a legendary shotgun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
Special Weapon Effects
Flee the wave, dude – Fires 2 rows of 6 slow moving projectiles in a wave pattern that ricochets off of surfaces for 5 seconds then dissipates if it does not hit an enemy.
Usage & Description
The weapon is only suitable for close-range combat due to the extreme horizontal spread and slow speed of the projectiles.
- The weapon shares its special effect with T.K's Wave but differs in the number of projectiles fired.
- The weapon can sometimes be found as a blue rarity shotgun. This isn't permanent as the weapon's legendary rarity is restored by quitting to the main menu and reloading the character.
- The Tidal Wave is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2 but as a legendary weapon instead of unique.
