About the Monarch:

The Monarch is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3. This is a Vladof Assault Rifle that shoots like a shotgun. It has a high magazine capacity and fire rate. With the Bipod Mode, it kinda functions like the Dictator as the pellet spread increases but you will move at a slower pace.

If you need more survivability while you are in Bi-pod mode, you can use a hot spring grenade to create a healing aura on the ground.

Special Weapon Effect:

“That’s gotta burn.”

  • Shotgun Assault Rifle
  • Rifle and Bipod Mode


Elemental Damage Guide

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.

How do you get The Monarch in Borderlands 3?

The Monarch is Mayhem Mode 6 or higher Legendary. You can get it from Killavolt who is located in Lectra City on Promethea. M6 gear will also drop from the bosses in the Guardian Takedown. But you can also farm Sera of Supremacy on True Trials for a 50% drop chance.

Is the Monarch any good?

The Monarch is a Top Tier weapon and is considered one of the best Assault Rifles in Borderlands 3.
