The Borderlands 3 gun grind is one that we’re not a stranger to, so if you’re on Team Gun Nut then you’re going to want to buckle up for this one. If you don’t have an SMG that you’re entirely enamored with yet, then why not check out this particular recommendation from us? We’ll help you get the Sleeping Giant Borderlands 3 gun so that you can round out your collection.
Sleeping Giant Borderlands 3 Guide – How to Get This Gun
The Sleeping Giant, for those who aren’t aware, is a Legendary Dahl SMG. The special weapon effect which it benefits from has the tagline “Infinite path carved with unrivaled skill”, and what this essentially means in terms of mechanics is that when you reload, you’ve got a chance to get a random gun bonus (yes, any gun bonus). The gun also has an increased fire rate, but we’re talking about rolling the dice on any one of the frankly ridiculous gun bonuses out there in a wacky game like Borderlands 3. We’re talking corrosive damage, extra melee damage, or any number of power-ups that could turn you lethal. The random element is half the fun.
If you’re looking to get your hands on the Sleeping Giant, well, you’re not going to have to take down a particular boss in the World or loot a particular area – it’s entirely random. You can get this gun from any loot source in the overworld, whether it’s a portable toilet or the back of someone’s abandoned shack in the middle of the irradiated wasteland. Hell, this also means that you can get it from killing whichever boss you think is the quickest to farm. If running around trying to kick chests open isn’t your specialty then go and take down someone like Maxitrillion a couple hundred times.
Now that you’ve got some information about how to get the Sleeping Giant Borderlands 3 SMG, it should be a bit easier to nab this gun for yourself. Need a hand with anything else in Borderlands 3? We’ve got some tips and tricks for you:
