The Electric Banjo is a Legendary Item in Borderlands 3. This Eridian Artifact gives your bullets a chance to inflict shock damage.

20% chance for each shot landed to arc electricity to a nearby enemy, dealing shock damage. Increased shock damage and resistance.

How to get the Electric Banjo?:

The Electric Banjo can be obtained from any loot source but has an increased chance to drop from the Psychobillies located in Ambermire on Eden-6.


The Electric Banjo artifact will grant the following bonuses:

  • Shock resistance
  • Shock damage


  • The artifact is a reference to the Ukulele item in the Risk of Rain video game series.
  • The flavor text is from a quote by Ted Dwane of the band Mumford and Sons, regarding their shockingly popular album “Babel”, containing music played on a banjo. “We never could have foreseen the success of ‘Babel.’ It’s not like banjo records were soaring up the charts, you know.”
