About the Ripper:

The Ripper is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This is a bladed Dahl SMG that will deal increased damage after you pierced your enemies with it. After you stabbed an enemy, it will be weakened. During this 5 second window, the Ripper will deal increased damage to that target. Weakened targets will have a  bleeding particle effect.


Incendiary, Shock, Corrosive, Cryo, and Radiation.

Special Weapon Effect:

“They say I’m a doctor now.”

  • Always Bladed
  • Meleed enemies are weakened and take 200% bullet damage from the Ripper.

How to get the Ripper?:

The Ripper can be obtained from any loot source but has a 15% chance of dropping from Shiv who is located in Covenant Pass on Pandora. He’s the first mini-boss you encounter.


  • After melee-ing an enemy with the Ripper a special particle effect is shown to indicate that the target is weakened. This bleeding effect disappears after 5 seconds when the status effect runs out.
  • The Ripper occasionally appears in Maurice’s Black Market.

  • The weapon’s name, special effect, and flavor text are a reference to Jack the Ripper, an infamous serial killer in the 1880s London. The flavor text is from the “Dear Boss” letter, allegedly written by the killer to a London news agency.
  • The Ripper’s melee accessory has an animated effect of blood dripping from it.
