Borderlands 3 Legendary Maliwan Shotgun - Recursion

About the Recursion:

The Recursion is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Maliwan Shotgun has a slow fire rate and it even feels slower than the listed fire rate as Maliwan weaponry has a charge-up time. That said, the Recursion does pack a punch as it shoots a tight pellet of projectiles making it very accurate for a shotgun. The projectiles can also ricochet from one enemy to another or bounce off surfaces. The Recursion is really great for clearing mobs.


Incendiary, Shock, Corrosive, Cryo, and Radiation.

Special Weapon Effect:

“See green text for description.”
