The special ability of the gun is that the projectiles it shoots can penetrate a target and explode, dealing with splash damage. The weapon can come in either burst fire or full auto modes. The variants of the weapon include times two and times three in the damage section, which increases not only the DPS but also the ammunition used.

How to Get Blood-Starved Beast in Borderlands 3

In order to get the weapon, you can play on Mayhem Level or without it at all. You want to finish the main mission from Fantastic Flustercluck DLC, called “Siege of Castle C”.

After you beat this mission, you will be able to come back to this map and farm Evil Lilith for the Blood-Starved Beast. His bar is health-only, so any fire weapon should help you beat the boss. Be aware, though, that he is a very tanky enemy, and comes in two phases. She is pretty annoying to farm, and you need to wait for some time during the immunity phase. After that, there is a 10% chance that he will drop this awesome DAHL Submachine Gun.

It has a low drop chance, especially if you are looking for a specific anointment. However, on April 8th, we got a new patch to Borderlands 3 and you are able to reroll anointments on weapons for the right price [250 eridium]. It might make farming for the perfect Blood-Starved Beast a lot easier, but you definitely know everything you need on now how to get Blood-Starved Beast in Borderlands 3.

Is Blood-Starved Beast Worth the Effort?

Definitely yes.

It is an awesome and unique SMG. Not many DAHL weapons are able to deal splash damage. It also can pierce through enemies, which makes it even more deadly for larger groups of enemies. Hopefully, after this article, you know exactly how to get Blood-Starved Beast in Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3 is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One X/S, and Xbox Series X/S.
