About the Hive:

The Hive is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Torgue Rocket Launcher shoots a beehive which will stop moving after hitting a target or traveling a short distance. When the hive stops it will spit out tiny rockets that will home into nearby enemies. The range of these rockets is massive which is great when you are down in ‘fight for your life’ mode. I can also see this Rocket Launcher as a good support weapon for clearing combat zones like in Proving Grounds or Circle of Slaughter. Just shoot a hive into the crowded area and let it do its work. Beware, this Torgue rocket launcher does consume a lot of ammo and has a slow fire rate and reload speed. So while it’s powerful, use it wisely.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Full of bees.”

  • Launches hovering ball that shoots many rockets before exploding.
  • Consumes 4 ammo per shot


Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-second duration.

Radiation damage can cause targets to become Irradiated. Irradiated enemies deal Aura Damage to nearby enemies for 8 seconds. If an Irradiated enemy dies, they explode, Irradiating any enemies damaged by the explosion.

How do you get the Hive in Borderlands 3?

The Hive can be obtained from any loot source but has a 10% chance of dropping from Princess Tarantella II who you can farm in the Splinterlands on Pandora.
