How to get the Lyuda Legendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 3

Unlike a lot of the weapons in Borderlands 3, which require players to just grind bosses or specific enemies, the Lyuda Legendary sniper rifle can be acquired two distinct ways, both of which could take players a bit to pull off. We've outlined both methods below, one of which will guarantee the weapon, and the other of which will require you to farm bosses for Legendary Weapon drops.

Zer0 will grant players at ask to kill several targets to receive the Lyuda Legendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 3.

The first method we'll discuss is the guaranteed method. This particular way will require players to complete a late-game quest called Target of Opportunity. This quest is given to players by Zer0 and will require you to defeat several named enemies that can be found throughout the galaxy. We've broken down each of the enemies below, as well as where to find them.

  • Baron Noggin - Found in the Meridian Metroplex.
  • DJ DeadSk4G - In the bandit camp on the far left of the Splinterlands map.
  • Crushjaw - Found in the Cathedral of the Twin Gods.
  • Heckle and Hyde - Search for these two in the Jakobs Estate map.
  • Handsome Jackie - This target can be found in Skywell-27.
  • Psychobillies - To find these targets, head over to Ambermire.
  • Judge Hightower and his Gang - To find the Judge and his goonies, you'll need to be taking part in the mission to defeat Killavolt. They can then be found along the route.
  • Sylestro and Atomic - This duo can be located on Nekrotafeyo.
  • Sky Bullies - This final target can be found in The Anvil on Eden-6.

If you don't feel up to tracking down all of the targets listed above, then you can also farm for the Lyuda Legendary sniper rifle by killing the various bosses in Borderlands 3. Because of the save points located right outside of most boss spawn rooms, it's very easy to farm these particular enemies on Mayhem Mode to increase the chance of Legendary items dropping. Of course, it's not guaranteed what kind of Legendary weapons will drop for you, so it could take a while.
