About the Reflux:

The Reflux is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3. This is a Hyperion Shotgun that has a high-capacity shield. Damage to the weapon’s shield will returns bullets to your magazine. This weapon will only come with the Corrosive element. It’s basically a corrosive Brainstormer as it creates a corrosive beam between enemies when you shoot them. There are always 2 corrosive beams when a link is made, 1 from your original target to another, and then a second one can go it back to the original target or attach to another target. This link will last 2 seconds and deal 10 ticks of damage during that time and each target can have up to 5 links. This weapon would be great for the Maliwan Takedown or Moxxi’s Heist on the Handsome Jackpot as you will be encountering a lot of armored enemies there.

Special Weapon Effect:

“That’s gotta burn.”

  • Always Corrosive
  • Creates a Corrosive beam between enemies that deal damage over time.


  • Corrosive: Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-second duration.
  • Check out the Brainstormer if you want a Shock Variant, however, the Reflux deals more damage.
  • Elemental Damage Guide
