Borderlands 3 Legendary SMG - Redistributor

About the Redistributor:

The Redistributor is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Hyperion SMG is part of the Takedown at Maliwan’s Blacksite. There is also a unique blue version in the game that you can get from completing the mission Impending Storm. However, this legendary version is way better.

The Redistributor special effect is that every 7th shot will deal AMP damage and chains to nearby enemies. Since this is an SMG the 7th shot will frequently occur giving you a lot of damage potential when dealing with mobs.
