About the Dark Army:

The Dark Army is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Tediore SMG is fun as it kinda works like the OPQ system. Because when you have this weapon equipped it will summon 1 but an army of drones. As these fly beside you, they will assist you with shooting your target.  When you reload the drones have increased Damage and gain the Elemental Damage Type of your weapon for a short time. Very fun to use. Yes, Zane’s clone will also summon its own army.

Special Weapon Effect:

“I am the gun.”

  • Summons an army of drones.
  • On Reload, drones have increased Damage and gain the Elemental Damage Type of your weapon for a short time.


Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.Shock damage is strong against Shields and causes targets to be electrocuted. Electrocution deals very high damage over a 3-second duration.Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-second duration.Cryo damage slows enemies and eventually freezing them.

Frozen enemies are unable to move and take 3x Melee damage.Radiation damage can cause targets to become Irradiated. Irradiated enemies deal Aura Damage to nearby enemies for 8 seconds.
