Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands may technically be a spin-off of the legendary Borderlands series, but the game still lets you hunt for a near-endless supply of loot for hours on end. Of course, like in the main Borderlands games, not all loot in Tiny Tina`s Wonderlands is created equal. This article will help players decide between some of the Best Weapons Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has to offer
Every time a player kills an enemy or opens a chest, they are greeted with an explosion of color that denotes the quality of an item. This rainbow of rarity helps players instantly determine which loot they should prioritize, with orange which means “legendary” items, often at the top of the list. Not only do these ultra-rare items typically deal more damage than other weapons and spells, but many of them have unique abilities that set them apart from regular shotguns and sniper rifles found in the game world.
These weapons are the opinion of the writer and may vary from player to player. Each weapon has abilities that alter their stats; hence it may not gel with all playstyles. However, here are a few of the absolute Best Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands that are absolutely worthwhile regardless of your class and build.
Masterwork Handbow (Pistol)
Pistols weren’t exactly known for their firing rate, clip size, or damage output, but one pistol in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands stands head and shoulders around countless other weapons, and that is the Masterwork Handbow.
While this particular Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands pistol only has one bolt in the clip at a time, it really stands out when it lands a critical hit. Its base damage is incredible, but when a critical hit lands, the ammo is refunded, so there is no need to reload (which is a huge lifesaver when you have hoards of enemies rushing towards you).
And that’s not even all; it shoots off six other bolts that magically launch towards the enemy that has received the critical hit. That’s what makes the gun so great. Players who build for critical hits or are accurate with headshots will surely find this to be one of the best weapons in the game for taking out groups of enemies.
If you want your own Masterwork Handbow, your best bet is to farm Shrine Piece – Grindanna. However, some players have also reported that this item can drop from a random enemy.
Goblin Pickaxe (Melee)
Tiny Tina`s Wonderland introduces melee Weapons to the Borderlands formula that, similar to the game`s guns, are available in a variety of rarities. In an obvious attempt to make a very good first impression, the dev’s made one of the game’s earliest melee weapons one of the best weapons in the game to have in your arsenal.
Each hit spawns gold, so not only does the player deal damage to their enemies, but they also get paid for it. As the player picks up gold that drops, their movement speed increases, Spell Cooldown lowers, and the Action Skill Cooldown rate also lowers.
A fantastic co-op weapon as well, the Goblin Pickaxe is farmed at Mount Craw’s “Ancient Obelisk” by fighting Pigwart.
Reloading a weapon isn’t always as boring as just inserting a new clip. Some weapons do incredible things during their seemingly basic reload animations. Well, one of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands best SMG has an unexpected weapon reload benefit in just about the coolest way possible.
The gun shoots explosive balls that explode into a pillar of hellfire. If an enemy is hit or killed by it, the next shot is faster. When it reloads, it’s essentially a dark magic grenade.
One of the Best Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is the Shadowfire SMG, a powerful gun with a high rate of fire (6.37) and has decent accuracy. While it has strange spray patterns, with practice, it is devastating.
So far, the most reliable way to obtain a Shadowfire is through the Chaos Chamber. (or it could also be a world drop).
Reign of Arrows (Shotgun)
When it comes to legendary shotguns, Reign of Arrows is an incredible item. When the player needs to get up close and in person, look no further.
What makes it stand out is that it fires all six shots in its magazine in one trigger pull, and each of the shots can do 460 damage. It’s amazing when it comes to clearing waves of enemies out.
It also has a special ability, to fire arrows in a circle. Every enemy within the circle gets damaged, making it yet another reason why this gun stands out.
It isn’t clear where this is farmed; some have said Chaos Chamber, while others say it’s a world drop.
Lil K’s Bread Slicer (Assault Rifle)
Assault Rifles are awesome in this game, and the Bread Slicer is no exception. Lil K’s Bread Slicer uses three ammo per shot but fires a trio of saw blades. They each hit for about 119 damage, and it has a fantastic magazine (66).
With high accuracy and an incredibly high rate of fire (6.37s), it’s going to absolutely melt foes. The saws can also hit multiple targets, since they keep going, bouncing off of the grounds and walls. The Bread Slicer will consistently come with a Gun Damage and Fire Rate bonus, and is guaranteed to have a 150% Critical Hit Chance buff.
Sadly, it’s a World Drop, so it cannot simply be farmed when it comes to boss encounters. Some have said it drops in Haunted Castle, however.
Liquid Cooling (Pistol)
The Liquid Cooling Skuldigger pistol is a monster of a weapon. It’s a crit machine and can deal infinitely sustained damage if you’re good at maintaining those critical hits. It only comes in the Frost element, but it’s one of the better elements in the game because of its ability to slow and completely freeze opponents. Frozen enemies are susceptible to more damage, so sustained fire against frozen enemies with this already high-damaging pistol makes this an all-rounder.
To obtain this weapon, you can get it as a World Drop or by farming the Ancient Obelisk enemy— Lissia, Iron-Wrought— in the Crackmast Cove region.
Wizard’s Pipe (SMG)
The Wizard’s Pipe is an SMG that can come in any element but has a special ability where it summons elemental orbs. These orbs shoot out of the gun and correspond to the weakness of the current enemy you’re shooting, making it a versatile mobbing and bossing weapon. Its only con is that the projectiles shot from the gun aren’t hitscan, making it harder to shoot at agile or flying enemies.
This gun can be acquired by farming the Parasite boss in the Tangledrift region. You’ll have to complete the “Walk the Stalk” quest before being able to fight it.
Another Best Gun in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is the Crossblade. The Crossblade is a Blackpowder (or Jakobs) shotgun that fires energy waves. This shotgun, while on the card says it deals Dark Magic damage, actually shoots two elemental projectiles. One projectile will be Dark Magic, while the other can be any other element. These projectiles are shot in an X trajectory and are extremely powerful when dealing with mobs of enemies.
This gun can be acquired as a World Drop but has a significantly higher chance of dropping by defeating Gloopathoth, a secret boss that can only be fought in the Chaos Chambers.
Blue Cake (Rocket Launcher)
For all the Borderlands 3 fans out there, the coveted Revenge of the Cartels Yellowcake is back! Now named the Blue Cake, this fires a lobbed, explosive projectile that splits into multiple projectiles in its flight path. How cool is that! It deals massive damage but is maximized if you shoot at a range where the projectile count reaches its maximum. As far as it is known right now, this only seems to come in the Shock element. Being particularly strong against shields.
You can get the weapon through Chaos chambers. To increase your chances, just invest all of your crystals into the rocket launcher. You can also get it as a weapon drop as well.
A melee hammer, the Pincushion is a weapon best synergized with guns like the Sapsucker, where for each Crossbolt stuck into an enemy as your melee them, your attacks deal a percentage more damage. Particularly with an Elemental Effect imbued, like Frost or Dark Magic, that can immediately weaken/slow your enemies, and you’ll be unstoppable even at close quarters. And this melee weapon compliments the Brr-Zerker and their Action Skills excellently.
Unfortunately, the Pincushion doesn’t have a specific farming location, so the best thing to do is wait until the end of the game when you unlock the Chaos Chamber.
There are several variations of AUTOMAGIC.exe, and the prefix and suffix of this weapon will change, depending upon the drop that you get. So, what is so special about the AUTOMAGIC.EXE? Well, it is a Stoker pistol, which means it has a great rate of fire. On top of that, after the recent buff, the damage on this pistol is incredibly insane!
The first mode is obviously the normal shooting mode, but the second mode allows you to fire a tracker dart. So, all you have to do is stick the tracker dart on your enemy, and shoot anywhere you want. The shots will home in towards that enemy only, even if the enemy is behind cover, it won’t matter.
The only problem with this weapon is that its accuracy is awful. The pistol has a random spray pattern, so you will have to use this at close range only. Unless, you have used the tracker dart, obviously.
To get or farm the Automagic.exe, you will have to head over to Weepwild Dankness – The Corrupted Heard. The boss you will have to farm is Banshee. The fast travel station is just near the boss location. So, the time required to get to the boss is really less. However, you might need a couple of rounds to get it.
Manual Transmission (Assault Rifle)
Manual Transmission operates in a fashion typical for weapons manufactured by Skuldugger as it quickly overheats and breaks. In normal firing mode, only the upper rotating barrel is used. Changing firing mode right before the weapon breaks increases its fire rate and prevent it from breaking. Mode change, when executed correctly, increases the weapon’s fire rate. This can be repeated a number of times, increasing the fire rate drastically with each change in modes.
It is obtained as a rare drop from Vorcanar in Mount Craw.
Envy (Sniper Rifle)
Envy, a legendary Blackpowdered sniper, is part of some of the Best Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and works nicely with critical shots. The bullet puts three pools of poison under the hit enemy per each critical hit. Additionally, the bullet will also ricochet dark magic bullets into enemies per critical hits. This makes it yet another great weapon for dealing with mobs of enemies. However, a con of Envy is that it is only so powerful with critical hits. Landing body shots or normal shots, in general, are not that strong.
Players can obtain the weapon randomly from any suitable loot source but have an increased chance to drop it from King Q’urub Hullsunder located in Drowned Abyss.
Delugeon (Heavy Weapon)
The Coiled Captors DLC for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has brought plenty of fun new things to the game. The Delugeon Legendary weapon is one of them. This heavy weapon has an interesting concept. Firing it “soaks” an enemy, coating them in a layer of water. While this effect lasts, if you hit them with fire from the gun’s Lightning Twister Rocket mode, the lightning will interact with the “soaked” effect and dish out extra damage.
While this is cool, the soaked effect is honestly better combined with other Lightning Damage weapons such as the Live Wire.
This Legendary is not a world drop. To get it, farm the Chums boss fight in Dreamveil Overlook or use the Wheel of Fate. Players can also obtain it from the Chaos Chamber.
Live Wire (SMG)
This gun literally shoots out a stream of lightning which deals very decent damage on the enemies. It melts their armor quicker, but the most overpowered thing about this weapon is that the lightning actually chains to all the enemies around you.
So instead of shooting just one enemy, you are shooting the whole bunch at the same time. The art design is a great addon to the pleasing visuals of this gun, especially during a fire. Also, while holding the Live Wire, every 2nd Melee Strike zaps the target for 1s, dealing Lighting Melee Damage.
You can only get the Live Wire as a world drop through vendors and bunnies after every successful chaos chamber run. However, there is no dedicated loot source to farm the Live Wire as of yet. Therefore, the best method of acquiring the Live Wire is through runs in chaos chambers like the cash chamber. Try to gain as many crystals as possible and invest them into the SMG barfing bunny to increase your chances of acquiring this weapon.
That’s it for this article; we hope this helped decide the Best Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
