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 damage over time.



  • "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.
