Borderlands 3 Legendary Class Mod - Sapper

About the Sapper:

The Sapper is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Gunner Class Mod is great for an infinite ammo build. Because longer you shoot the more life steal you gain. This Sapper class mod can really help out with Moze’s survivability.

Special Weapon Effect:

“To each according to their needs”

Moze gains up to 12% Life Steal. The longer she holds down the fire button, the greater the life steal. This effect does not apply in Iron Bear.

How to get the Sapper Class Mod?:

The Sapper can be obtained from any suitable loot source, as a world drop on Xylourgos, in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles DLC. But it has a 15% chance of dropping from Empowered Grawn in Negul Neshai.

Skill Bonuses

If you want a god-roll Sapper Class Mod you should be looking for these passive stats bonuses on your Gunner Class Mod:

Passive StatsDescription
[Weapon Type] DamageSpecific [Weapon Type] bonus damage is multiplicative and will, therefore, provide a larger damage increase than the general weapon damage.
Splash Damage / Weapon DamageWhile General Splash/Weapon Damage is additive instead of multiplicative, like the specific [Weapon Type] damage, it still provides a nice universal bonus that applies to all your weapons.
[Manufacturer] Weapon (Critical) DamageSpecific [Manufacturer] bonus damage is multiplicative and will, therefore, provide a larger damage increase than the general weapon damage.


  • This Class Mod doesn’t have a hidden Splash Damage boost like the Green Monster.
  • The Legendary Effect does not affect Iron Bear.
  • Best Rolls: 5/5 “Iron Bank” or 5/5 “Matched Set”
