About the Free Radical:

The Free Radical is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Maliwan Pistol is a mixture between the Beacon and the Carrier. The Free Radical only comes in the shock element and shoots energy orbs that deal shock splash damage. Projectiles that hit a target will summon a homing projectile that will move in on the original target. While your energy orbs do deal splash damage the homing projectiles won’t deal that.


Shock damage is strong against Shields and causes targets to be electrocuted. Electrocution deals very high damage over a 3-second duration.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Don’t be so negative.”

  • Always Shock
  • Every hit will spawn a homing bullet that will hit the target again.

How to get the Free Radical?

The Free Radical is a Director’s Cut exclusive Legendary and has a 30% chance of dropping from Beef Plissken in Karass Canyon on Pandora. He is a named enemy in Ava’s Murder Mystery Missions. You can also get this weapon from The Seer or Hemovorous the Invincible.
