The Borderlands 3 Infinity Pistol legendary is a returning gun from the old games. In case you've never heard of it, or the name isn't a clue. it has infinite ammo. Because of that it's one of the best guns in the game thanks to the fact that you simple never have to stop firing. 

It may not have the best stats, or deal the most damage but the fact that it can maintain a constant barrage of fire makes it a potent, invaluable tool. However, while we're about detail everything we know about the Borderlands 3 Infinity Pistol location and how to get it, there are spoilers here for the end of the game. So be warned.

Okay, so to explain concisely, the Borderlands 3 Infinity Pistol seems to be a random drop. While there has been a few specific reports of bosses dropping the Infinity Pistol, there's no guaranteed way to obtain the weapon and you'll need to cross your fingers RNGesus is on your side.

As for the specific bosses we know about that can drop the Borderlands 3 Infinity Pistol, the main one is right at the end of the game: Troy Calypso. Killing him has a chance of dropping the weapon, as seen in this video from Glitching Queen.

We've also seen a variant of the Infinity Pistol called Storming Infinity drop from Katagawa Jr, the boss at the end of the Atlas HQ area on Promethea. This comes from a shoddily recorded video by Vortex xR, but it does clearly show the legendary dropping. 

Finally, Twitter user @YaBoyKevinnn tweeted to let me know that he also managed to obtain a Ruthless Infinity from his seventh kill on Graveward. If we find out any more potential bosses that can drop the Borderlands 3 Infinity Pistol, we'll update this later down the line.

As mentioned previously, the Borderlands 3 Infinity Pistol has infinite ammo so you never need to stop firing. It also shoots in an infinity symbol pattern with hardly any recoil, which is neat.

As for the damage stats, the one acquired by Glitching Queen in the aforementioned video is at level 50 and deals 326 damage per shot, fires at a rate of 7.45 per second, and has a 4x weapon zoom. As she so helpfully demonstrates, it absolutely destroys the Chupacabratch.

There you have it! An incredibly hard weapon to get ahold of due to the luck factor involved but when you do, you'll be unstoppable. Good luck, Vault Hunter!
