How To Get O.P.Q. System – Borderlands 3

Last Updated on November 13, 2022

In this article we’ll talk about How To Get the new O.P.Q. System Legendary Assault Rifle in Borderlands 3

Borderlands has always been flaunting the fact that the game has a billion weapons. Remembering the name of each gun is practically impossible. While doing my Revenge of the Cartels missions, Cost-Effective Optimized O.P.Q. System dropped for me. I was sure that I haven’t heard of it before, so I tried it, oh boy, this might be one of the best assault rifles in the game at the moment. Let’s find out how to get it and what are the stats like.

How To Get O.P.Q. System – Borderlands 3

O.P.Q. System Stats

  • Manufacturer: Atlas
  • Damage : 2738×2
  • Accuracy : 50%
  • Handling : 58%
  • Reload Time : 2.3s
  • Fire Rate : 8.58/s
  • Red Text : B.Y.O.B.B

The weapon has two firing modes; first is Assault Rifle mode and the other one is O.P.Q. System. The first one should be self explanatory, the one we are looking for is the O.P.Q. System mode, the gun spawns clones around you to assist you in fights.

My variant had the Cost-Effective Optimized pretext, not sure the same will drop everyone. The weapon also has anointed text that says: On Action Skill End, the next 2 magazines will have 50% additional bonus cry damage. Not exactly the roll I wanted, but my friend got the same one with bonus 200% damage on skill end, which is going to be beastly.

O.P.Q. System BL3 – Drop Location

Note: As mentioned in my previous article about How To Start Revenge of the Cartels, I had mentioned that this is a free event and you don’t need to own any DLC.

There are two ways to farm this weapon; either farm the new boss called Joey Ultraviolet or farm the Cartel Thugs located in Ascension Bluff. Keep on repeating until you get the variant you want. In the end, RNG has to be on your side. Good luck.

Update: Seems like the drop chances are high when you take down Joey Ultraviolet.
