Hornet Pistol Guide – Borderlands 2

The Hornet

The Hornet pistol is one of the most effective weapons in Borderlands 2. I recommend this pistol within the Commando build: Gemgineer.

What is the Hornet Pistol?

Made by Dahl, this legendary pistol is a corrosive one and fires a 6-round burst when you zoom in. The gun has reduced accuracy but increased elemental effect and there’s somewhat of a chance for getting the elemental splash effect too. 

But what makes the Hornet so deadly isn’t the splash effect. The main point of focus for the Hornet is that it always has a corrosive effect which is why it is most effective against opponents with armor.

The Different Available Elements for the Hornet

Hornet is available in one element only: Corrosive.

How To Get the Hornet?

This legendary gun can firstly be obtained from any random suitable loot source, however, you can get it from Knuckle Dragger if you want increased chances of getting the weapon. Knuckle Dragger is available in the Windshear Waste.

  • The Hornet has a 10% drop rate on Knuckle Dragger.
