Borderlands 3 Legendary SMG - 9-Volt

About the 9-Volt:

The 9-Volt is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Dahl SMG  always spawns with the shock element. The pellets from this gun are aligned in an inverted triangle pattern making a V-shape.  Combine this with the fixed magazine size of 9, you got your 9-Volt. The alternate fire mode only changes the scope, so you are “stuck” in burst fire but can switch between the amount of zoom. Burst fire, hate it or love it, the legendary 9-Volt has a high fire rate and a fast reload speed. It’s very effective against shielded enemies as it rips through their energy.



Special Weapon Effect:


  • Always shock.
  • Shoots 7 pellets in an inverted triangle pattern.
  • Burst fire mode only with Alternative Fire mode changing between 1.5x and 3x zoom.
  • Fixed magazine size of 9.

How to get the 9-Volt?:

The 9-Volt can be obtained from any loot source but has an increased chance of dropping from Killavolt who is located in Lectra city on Promethea.

Drop Rate:

The Drop Rate of the 9-Volt is 13.5% on Mayhem 6 or above, otherwise, it’s 30%
