About the Blanc:

The Blanc is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Dahl Pistol gains increased weapon damage when hitting targets, however, this damage boost is only applied when you switch your firing mode. You can get 10 stacks if you hit your opponents 10 times. It’s a bit hard to track, so use try and switch firing modes after each clip. The damage increase lasts 12 seconds, so if you keep firing and switch the firing mode after each magazine you should be able to keep it up. You won’t lose you stacks when you are going into ‘Fight For Your Life’. The Blanc can come in Burst, Semi-Auto, and Full-Auto.


Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.

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:

“This machine unerringly arrives at the truth.”

  • Damaging enemies grants +35% weapon damage for a short time when switching between firing modes. Stacks 10 times.
  • Bullets ricochet off surfaces once.

Is The Blanc any good?

The Blanc deals good damage but you have to work a bit for it to get the most out of it.
