Borderlands 3 Legendary Grenade - Lightspeed

About the Lightspeed:

The lightspeed is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Hyperion Grenade Mod always uses the longbow delivery mechanic. On impact, it will shootout additional grenades that will travel further at the angle of impact. So ideally, you want to throw this just before the enemy’s feet and then watch how the additional grenades impact your target. Kinda like how you would handle the Hellshock in Borderlands 3 (or fibber from Borderlands 2).


Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.

Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.

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

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

Cryo damage slows enemies and eventually freezing them. Cryo efficiency is the percentage of damage dealt that is applied as Cryo, at 100% efficiency, enemies will freeze at 20% health. Frozen enemies are unable to move and take 3x Melee damage

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.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Gimme a parsec”

  • Always Longbow
  • Spawns Additional Grenades that will ricochet on impact.

Where to get the Lightspeed?

The Lightspeed has a 44% chance of dropping from Anathema the Relentless on Mayhem 1-5 or a 39.1% chance on Mayhem 6 or above. You can farm Anathema in the Guardian Takedown which is located on Minos Prime.

Where can I find Anathema the Relentless?

Anathema the Relentless is the mid-boss that you encounter during the Takedown on the Guardian Breach on Minos Prime. You can access the Guardian Takedown once you completed Borderlands 3’s main story campaign.Anathema the Relentless Spawn Location - Borderlands 3 Guardian Takedown

Is the Lightspeed any good?

The Lightspeed is only good if you manage to bounce it properly
