Borderlands 3 Eridian Fabricator: how to get the Gun Gun that fires guns

If you’re looking for a handy way to farm level-appropriate weapons then this gun might be the one you want, so here’s how to get


How do you get the Borderlands 3 Eridian Fabricator? Previously known as the Gun Gun, plenty will know this weapon as the firearm that shoots out, well, more guns. Sure, it may not be useful against baddies, but it’s nifty if you’re looking to deck out your arsenal. Weapons that drop are level-appropriate, which is neat as you don’t have to worry about getting something you can’t use.

To power this bad boy, though, you’re going to need plenty of Borderlands 3 Eridium. Nothing good comes for free, after all. The quickest way to get these is by finding them around the various open areas of Borderlands 3 – they’re purple clusters of rock so you shouldn’t have many problems spotting them. Alternatively, you can go to the Borderlands 3 dead Claptrap locations or any other collectables, which will also give your Eridium.

Throughout this guide we’ll tell you what you need to do to get one of the more quirkier Borderlands 3 legendary weapons. So, here’s how to get the Borderlands 3 Edridian Fabricator. This guide does contain some very minor late-game spoilers, so consider yourself warned.

How to get the Borderlands 3 Eridian Fabricator

Getting this gun isn’t too tricky, just plough through the story missions. Eventually, you’ll come across one called the ‘Footsteps of Giants’. During this mission you’ll meet an NPC with the Eridian Fabricator – when you first meet him he’ll offer to fire it in exchange for Eridium, and after doing so he’ll ask you to accompany him on a mission.

Once you complete that mission they’ll hand it over and you can use it to your heart’s content. You’ll still need Eridiumn to fuel it, though, so keep that in mind.

And there you have it, that’s how to get the Borderlands 3 Eridian Fabricator, otherwise known as the Gun Gun. It’s a gimmick that keeps within Borderlands 3’s signature humour, but it’s useful to get some level-appropriate guns. It just depends on how much Eridium you have to burn.
