Vosk's Deathgrip is a legendary shotgun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Maliwan. It can be obtained as a drop from Troy Calypso in The Great Vault on Pandora, and the Valkyrie Squad and Wotan the Invincible in Midnight's Cairn when Mayhem Mode 4 is active.

Special Weapon Effects

A good death is its own reward – Fires a volley of projectiles that create beams of the weapon's element. Alternative fire mode fires a disk that creates a singularity.

Usage & Description

Vosk's Deathgrip is effective as a crowd control weapon. Both firing modes produce projectiles that activate at the same distance if nothing is directly hit, so the Vosk's Grasp singularity may be used to keep more mobile enemies in the area of the beams' effect for a longer period of time. It is also very effective against slower and larger enemies who cannot escape the area of effect of the beams as quickly and will be hit by many of them at once.


  • If the projectiles of the primary firing mode hit a surface and are unable to attack an enemy, the projectiles explode on impact.
  • The secondary firing mode of Vosk's Deathgrip is labeled as 'Vosk's Grasp'.
  • Vosk's Deathgrip always fires an even number of projectiles as two are needed to generate an elemental beam.


  • The flavor text is a quote said by Colonel Nathan Hardy in the 2013 film Man of Steel.
