How to get The Butcher

You can get The Butcher from random world drops in Borderlands 3, but there are a few dedicated farming methods for this weapon. One of these methods is to kill a certain enemy that has a chance to drop The Butcher, and here is that.

  • Raging Titan has a 33.3% chance of dropping The Butcher.
  • In Mayhem level 4, the Raging Titan has a 25% chance to drop The Butcher.

The only way to find and kill the Raging Titan is by heading over to The Slaughter Shaft in Pandora. Here, you have to fight the waves of enemies, where you will encounter the titan in the 5th round of the 5th wave.

The other way to get The Butcher is by killing Dinklebot at Skywell-27 on Promethea. He drops a Loot-o-Grams that you can exchange with Crazy Earl at Sanctuary III for a chance to get The Butcher in Borderlands 3.
