About the Binary Operator:

The Binary Operator is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Maliwan Sniper looks very interesting as the damage is on the item card lists 2 damage.  Another noteworthy thing is that this is a non-elemental Maliwan weapon! The Binary Operator comes down to a binary choice. If it is able to deal enough damage to 1 shot an enemy it will insta-kill them. If it deals 1 damage point lower, it will resort to the 2 damage  as mentioned on the item card

Special Weapon Effect:

“Do it or don’t. What’s an attempt?”

  • Weapon charge required before each use.
  • When hitting an enemy with a lower HP value than hidden weapon value, it will one-shot that enemy. Otherwise, you will deal the 2 damage as listed on the item card


Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.
