Borderlands 3 | Fearmonger Legendary Weapon Guide (Bloody Harvest Event Item!)

About the Fearmonger:

The Fearmonger is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Hyperion Shotgun was added to the game during the Bloody Harvest event and plays into the Halloween theme. The damage of the Fearlmonger is good but only after the elemental projectiles explode. The damage on impact isn’t that great but after a short delay, the projectiles will explode and deal great damage. The elemental projectiles travel in a square formation that will wobble a bit in and out like the interfacer from Borderlands 2.


Incendiary, Corrosive, Shock, Cryo, and Radiation.
