About the Tidal Wave:

The Tidal Wave is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Jakobs Shotgun can be devastating at point-blank but that’s about it.

The Tidal Wave has cool moving projectiles but because they move very slowly, it’s hard to hit your targets at even medium range. It is fun to shoot this weapon in a narrow passageway as all the projectiles will ricochet. You really need to work to get the most out of this weapon.

You can also get an elemental version of this weapon but then it’s called TK’s Wave. That version also has increased critical hit damage which makes that point-blank combat more effective.


None: Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.

Special Weapon Effect:

“Flee the wave, dude!”

  • Shoots 2 rows of 6 slow-moving projectiles that travel in a wave pattern.
  • Projectiles ricochet off of surfaces.
  • The projectile’s lifespan is 5 seconds.
  • Consumes 2 Ammo per shot
