Many aspects of Borderlands 3 can be described as over-the-top and weapons like the Breath of the Dying legendary assault rifle only reinforce this point.
Given how having an extra legendary for your armor shredding needs never hurts, here's what we know about where to find the Breath of the Dying legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3.
Borderlands 3 Breath of the Dying
The Breath of the Dying legendary assault rifle is, sadly, not a fixed drop in Borderlands 3. This means that, instead of being obtainable from one boss only, it can drop anywhere in the world.
There are ways, however, in which to increase the likelihood of obtaining Breath of the Dying, or other cool legendaries. For starters, and if you've completed the campaign once, you could turn on Borderlands 3's Mayhem modes.
These increase both the difficulty, throwing bulkier enemies your way, but also the chance of legendary loot dropping. Playing on True Vault Hunter mode can further increase your chances.
The key to obtaining Breath of the Dying in Borderlands 3 is, as you can probably tell, perseverance. Luckily, killing stuff in the game makes for one hell of a time.
If you do end up getting the weapon, you'll have access to a gun that's quite devastating against armor. The Dahl-manufactured assault rifle has the VexHelElEldZodEth. special effect.
It not only converts all damage the weapon does to corrosive but kills make enemies explode and launch corrosive balls in multiple directions.
Borderlands 3 is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
