Crit is a great option if you are making a build for Zane or Amara. Additionally, Crit only has one element, as given below.

  • Shock – this is effective against shielded enemies.

How to get Crit

There is only one way to get Crit in Borderlands 3, which is via the in-game mail. You randomly receive this weapon in your mail when you tip Miss Moxi. You can find her at Sanctuary III, where you have to find her tipping jar. The jar is placed on the counter, and it has a board saying, “Insert your tip.”

The amount of money you tip doesn’t matter, but players had more luck getting Crit by giving more money. The general chances of you getting Crit by tipping the jar are as follows.

  • If you tip $100, there is a 0.25% of getting Crit.
  • If you multiply that by ten and tip $1,000, you have a 2.5% chance of getting Crit in your mailbox.

You can keep tipping Moxi until you get Crit. You don’t have to worry about money because this SMG is worth every penny.
