About the Proprietary License:
The Proprietary License is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Hyperion SMG shoots in bursts but if you pull the trigger fast enough it basically performs like a full-auto SMG. The Proprietary License has 2 special abilities and the effect depends on where the projectiles hit. When you score a critical hit the bullets will ricochet, however, when you hit body shots the projectile will leave a little sticky bomb onto your opponent. You can use this SMG on all ranges.
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:
“A little from Column A, a little from column B.”
- Body shots leave a Torgue sticky bomb on the target.
- Critical hits ricochet the projectiles and bounces through the environment.
- Increased Melee Damage
Where to get the Proprietary License?
The Proprietary License has a 33% chance of dropping from Hydragoian who is located in Obsidian Forest on Gehenna. But this weapon can also ‘World Drop’ in the Bounty of Blood DLC.
Where can I find Hydragoian?
Hydragoian can be found in Obsidian Forest on Gehenna. It’s part of the ‘Skin to Win’ Crew Challenge. When you went through the Shack and drop down the waterfall, you will find a hidden cave deviating from the main path.
Is the Proprietary License any good?
The Proprietary License is great and you should definitely farm one for yourself.
