Unleash the Dragon is a legendary artifact in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Eridian. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from El Dragon Jr located in Jakobs Estate on Eden-6.

Special Effects

En fuego! – 100% incendiary chance for melee attacks, sliding and ground slams.

Usage & Description

The Unleash the Dragon artifact grants two of the following bonuses:

  • Increased melee damage
  • Increased incendiary damage
  • Increased incendiary resistance

The damage over time effect seems to be based on the damage produced by the initial melee hit. The stronger the melee attack, the higher the DoT.



  • "En fuego" is Spanish for "On fire".
  • The name and flavor text are both a reference to another Gearbox game Battleborn, specifically, the character named "El Dragón" whose moves mirror the effects of the artifact itself.
