Borderlands 3 Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot has brought a new collection of legendary weapons to the game.

This includes the Jakobs pistol Lucky 7 is the closest to a slot machine a gun can get, while ION CANNON is very deserving of its capital letters.

You could also receive the Boomer SMG, which is explosive as its sounds, or the Torgue pistol, Craps. There are also four new legendary class mods, one for each Vault Hunter, and a new legendary shield for you to hunt down.

How to get Lucky 7, ION CANNON, Boomers, Craps and other legendary Guns in Borderlands 3 Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot

There are 12 new legendary guns introduced in Borderlands 3 Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot.

Each new weapon has its own set of bonuses, effects and maybe even a special ability. Lucky 7, for example, has a slot machine mechanic, which randomly decides what effect your bullets might have.

All of these weapons, except for the ION CANNON, can be dropped randomly by any enemy within The Jackpot. This is, however, a rare occurrence and you're more likely to receive the gun by defeating the boss or mini-boss whose loot pool it's been assigned too.

Legendary Class Mods found in Borderlands 3 Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot

There are four new class mods - one for each Vault Hunter - in Borderlands 3 Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot.

Each class mod has its own special effect and a variety of bonuses, which could be anything from increasing your Vault Hunter's Max Health to a specific type of weapon damage.

Best of all, however, each class mod will provide five bonus skill points across a set of skills. This will allow you to invest in skills that you passed up on while levelling up.

Like with the majority of the legendary guns, there is a rare chance that one of these class mods will be randomly dropped by any enemy within The Jackpot. Each class mod, however, is assigned to the Jackbot's loot pool, which is the final boss of this DLC.

Like the name suggests, this shield is all about reflecting the bullets and projectiles that are sent towards you. This includes both when the shield is in use and when it's not.

It will also drop Fortify Charges, which give you a 10% Damage Reduction, and returns a large amount of damage to any one who dares try to melee you.
