What are the Best Weapons in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands?

What are the Best Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands?

Here are some of the best and deadliest weapons in the game.
This article is over 2 years old and may contain outdated information

One of the most entertaining aspects of the Borderlands games is the randomly-generating loot system. When a gun appears at your feet, either from a chest or a dead guy, its stats and capabilities are randomly generated on the spot, scaled to your level. This means that you could receive a fancy-schmancy rifle from completing a quest, then stumble onto a different rifle that absolutely dwarfs it by complete accident.

This randomness does make it a bit difficult to quantify best weapons, but even with the random element, there are some weapons that are just objectively amazing. So, what are the best weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands?

What are the Best Weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands?

While this is by no means an exhaustive list, as that would be basically impossible to assemble, here are some of the most reliably deadly weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands:

  • Lil K’s Bread Slicer
  • Liquid Cooling
  • AUTOMAGIC.exe
  • Wailing Banshee
  • Envy
  • Swordsplosion
  • White Rider

Lil K’s Bread Slicer

In addition to the regular assault rifles that fire regular bullets, there are certain rifles that launch crossbow bolts or saw blades instead. In the latter case, the saw blades can fly a little further and are more accurate thanks to their wider shape. But you know what’s better than a rifle that launches a saw blade? A rifle that launches three. Lil K’s Bread Slicer pumps out three saw blades at once with every shot. Not only does this eviscerate everything in front of you in a horizontal line, but the blades can ricochet off surfaces, turning small rooms into whirling blenders of chaos.

This is a world drop weapon with no fixed point of spawn.

Liquid Cooling

Skuldugger-branded weapons have infinite clips, but the trade-off to using them is that they overheat with regular use, which can leave you stuck trying to cool down your gun at an inopportune time. Dial down that pesky overheating with Liquid Cooling, an automatic pistol that clears some of the overheat meter every time you land a critical hit. Paired with a Stabbomancer’s critical-guaranteeing abilities, and you’ve got a functionally infinite pistol on your hands.

Liquid Cooling has a higher chance of dropping from Lysia in Crack Mass Cove.

AUTOMAGIC.exe

In Borderlands 3, the Atlas brand offered guns with smart tracking capabilities, allowing you to tag enemies with a tracker dart and fire your bullets in any direction to hit them. Atlas doesn’t have an equivalent brand in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, so this feature is mostly absent, but thankfully, we got one gun that still has it. AUTOMAGIC.exe works the same as the Atlas weapons; peg an enemy with a tracker dart, and any bullets you fire out of it will magically find their target, even if you’re looking away or hiding behind cover. It’s great for dealing with slippery, flying foes.

AUTOMAGIC.exe can be dropped by the Banshee in Weepwild Darkness, alongside the following weapon.

Wailing Banshee

Melee weapons are a much bigger part of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands compared to other Borderlands games, as they have their own brands and special effects. Most of them are still situational weapons, better for mopping up smaller baddies, but the Wailing Banshee works great at both smacking range and slightly further smacking range. Every hit you land with this two-handed sword will launch additional projectiles behind the target, allowing you to simultaneously attack multiple foes in a line, even if they’re not physically in melee range.

This weapon is a guaranteed drop from the Banshee; you can’t miss it.

Envy

Feeling envious of enemies that are better at sniping than you? Don’t discourage that green-eyed monster, embrace it! With the power of the Envy sniper rifle, your foes will be seeing a different kind of green. Specifically, the large green puddles of armor-eating poison that spawn at their feet when you plug them with a critical hit. This is another great weapon for crit-heavy builds like Stabbomancers.

Envy has a higher chance of dropping from King Corrupt Hellsunder, one of the Obelisk bosses in the Drowned Abyss.

Swordsplosion

If there are two things Mr. Torgue values, it’s the sanctity of human life, and blowing stuff up in the most needlessly spectacular way possible. Enter, the Swordsplosion shotgun. If you played the Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep DLC for Borderlands 2, this will seem familiar, yet distinct. In its primary fire mode, the Swordsplosion launches large, exploding swords with every shot, good for attacking large areas. The real treat, though, is the secondary mode. In secondary mode, every sword you launch at an enemy will get stuck in them, increasing the amount of damage they take from attacks. When you reload the Swordsplosion, a giant magic sword will pierce your target from beneath, detonating all of the swords stuck in them as it does. 

Swordsplosion has a higher chance of dropping from LeChance in Wargtooth Shallows.

White Rider

Having trouble dealing with multiple armored foes at a time? Worry no more, as Pestilence rides a white horse! The White Rider SMG fires a concentrated beam of Poison weapon damage, good for eating through sturdy defenses. Even better is its secondary fire mode, which busts out a second poison beam, allowing you to focus fire on two armored enemies at the same time! Thanks to its naturally high accuracy, the White Rider takes the guesswork out of focused fire.

This is a world drop weapon with no fixed spawn point.
