Borderlands 3 Legendary SMG - ION LASER

About the ION Laser:

The ION Laser is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Maliwan SMG is a hybrid between an SMG and a shotgun. It shoots a continuous elemental laser beam. Once you stop firing the ION Laser will shoot a bunch of elemental orbs (1 to 6) like a shotgun. The number of orbs is based on the duration of you shooting the laser beam. In that sense, you are charging your shotgun with a laser beam. You will get the maximum number of orbs after firing the beam for 4 seconds. Since the obs deal significant damage you want to utilize those. There is a little trick that allows you to fire multiple waves of orbs. After firing your first wave of orbs, tap the trigger button a few times to fire additional orbs.


Incendiary, Shock, Corrosive, Cryo, and Radiation.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Particles unite!”

  • Continuous beam. Stop firing shoots orbs, count based on beam duration
