Been having a good time with the Borderlands 3 DLC that's come out? We're in the same boat. With more content has, of course, come more additions to everyone's favorite looter shooter in the form of even more things to kill other people with. Joy! We're talking today about the Borderlands 3 Oldridian Legendary SMG.
Borderlands 3 Oldridian Legendary Guide
So, you're after the Oldridian Legendary. Yes, that's definitely an Old Gods pun, especially considering the content of the latest Guns, Love and Tentacles DLC that we've enjoyed blasting through. There's no shortage of ways for Vault Hunters to beat back the void, but why not take on something that has the added fun of being a gamble every time you reload? Yes, you heard right. Every time you reload.
The Special Weapon Effect of the Oldridian is called "They bound the ones they knew of. There were more" and what this does is it enables the Oldridian to switch element when you reload it. There's also an energy shield on the weapon and it reduces elemental damage received by 20% but correspondingly gives you increased damage. The Oldridian can spawn with either Radiation or Cryo as its base elements, and it can also spawn without a base element. We reckon that this submachine gun is pretty dope just because it rolls a different element each reload, forcing you to stay on your toes when it comes to combatting your enemy's weakness. And also, well, rolling that roulette is pretty fun and the damage increase that it gives you is generally enough for you to mow down your opponents even if you're not at a strict elemental advantage.
Now that you've got what you need to know about the Borderlands 3 Oldridian Legendary, getting it should be fairly easy. At least the drop rate is isolated to the newer content, which is a bit of a relief for those who are tired of just relying on things being spewed out of any loot source - yes, we're looking at you, The Alchemist (more on getting that weapon in this guide here). Now, if you don't yet own a copy of Borderlands 3, why not pick one up via this Amazon link and support Prima Games at the same time? We reckon it's a pretty good deal. Once you've cracked into the Vault Hunting lifestyle, come back to our dedicated guides hub for the game and check out the tips and tricks that we've prepared for players just like yourself:
