For many players, farming the best Borderlands 3 weapons will be one the primary appeals of Gearbox Software's new looter shooter. Indeed, there are an absolutely staggering number of powerful Borderlands 3 legendary weapons to obtain, but not all of the game's highest damage guns are legendaries. Case in point: the BL3 Masher pistol is an absolute monster when it comes to DPS, and it is only of epic rarity.
Masher revolvers have been around since the original Borderlands, and they are back with a vengeance in BL3. The Borderlands 3 Masher pistol is manufactured by Jakobs, which means that it can be fired as fast as a player can pull the trigger, and it fires five pellets per shot, while only consuming one ammunition. This combination makes the BL3 Masher revolver an excellent option for high DPS, which may leave some players wondering how to get it.
How to Get the Masher Pistol in Borderlands 3
The Borderlands 3 Masher pistol is not a unique item in this installment, which means that it can likely be obtained in a number of ways. That said, there is a guaranteed way to get a BL3 Masher, and that method is what will be covered in this guide.
In order to get a guaranteed Masher, players will need to have reached Borderlands 3's Eden-6, the game's fourth planet. Here, players can obtain a quest from a body on the ground, which is found in front of the sign for Knotty Peak in Floodmoor Basin, called Don't Truck with Eden-6. This mission will send players out to kill Bloodfap and his gang, which is done by way of vehicular assault.
Once this has been done, Borderlands 3 Vault Hunters should turn in the quest and received their guaranteed Masher. A simple task indeed, and it is certainly worth the effort considering just how powerful the BL3 Masher revolver can be.
For players that are looking for slightly heavier artillery in Borderlands 3, there are plenty of options available. For example, the BL3 Elon Musk flamethrower is absolutely devastating, and it certainly makes a statement when it is fired. That said, the Masher detailed here is nothing to sneeze at, and many players will definitely want to add this powerful gun to their arsenals.
Borderlands 3 is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Google Stadia version also in development.
