Last Updated on November 16, 2022

How To Get Beacon BL3 – The Bounty of Blood update introduced 23 new legendaries, one of them is Beacon. In today’s article, we will find out where you can farm it from.

We have already covered about Unkempt Harold, Robin’s Call Shotgun, Light Show, Flipper and Complex Root. These are some of the good weapons that were added with this update.

How To Get Beacon – Borderlands 3

Beacon is legendary pistol manufactured by Maliwan. The weapon is Bounty of Blood DLC exclusive, you need to own the DLC in order to be able to farm this weapon.

When it first dropped for me, I was skeptical whether it would be good or not. But after tweaking around with a few builds, I figured this might be one of the best legendaries of this DLC. The weapon also has a special effect that fires burst of projectiles after charge, upon reloading it creates a nova effect around the wielder.

So far I have farmed two variants:

Expert Beacon
Hazardous Beacon

Beacon Stats BL3

  • Red Text: This little light of mine
  • Damage: 14920
  • Accuracy: 81%
  • Handling: 76%
  • Reload Time: 2.3s
  • Fire Rate: 9.01/s
  • Magazine Size: 28

Both of these variants have different stats because one of them dropped at Mayhem 6 and the other dropped at Mayhem 10.

You have to own the Bounty of the Blood DLC in order to access the new content. The new DLC costs $12 on Epic Games store you can purchase it separately, or you can buy the season pass to get access to all the Season 1 content.

This weapon drops from Kormash on Ashfall Peaks – Caldera Stronghold at Gehenna. Kormash is the boss of Ashfall Peaks, you might have trouble taking him down for the first time, don’t hesitate to take your friend’s help. You should also be playing at Mayhem 6 or above, I wasn’t able to get any drops while playing at a lower difficulty. The drop rate is really low, but that is how RNG is.

Kormash Boss Location at Caldera Stronghold on Gehenna

You can take down the boss and quit, spawn in to the exact boss location again and keep farming until you get the variant that you want.
