In Borderlands 2, we pay a lot of attention to legendary weapons. And why not, they are the best weapons in the game and each one has a unique effect. But in addition to these weapons, there is another type of weapon that falls in between the legendary and the unique ones, and those are the pink rarity weapons, better known as the seraph weapons.
These were first introduced in Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty DLC and since then, the community is crazy about them. Not because they are better than the legendary weapons, they are even slightly worse than them or contain some kind of difficulty to use, like low accuracy or low range. But what attracts the community is that, besides also having effects like the legendary weapons, there are very few seraph weapons in the game and they are not easy to get.
Therefore, in this list, we will not only show you the best seraph rarity weapons but also the items in general.
This grenade produced by Torgue can only be obtained by buying it through the seraph vendor in the Badass Crater Of Badassitude of the Dlc “Mr. Torgue’s Bloody Slaughter”.
When exploded, it generates small long-range grenades that, when exploded, generate more small grenades causing devastating damage. Properly thrown, a single one of these grenades can wipe out large hordes of enemies.
This grenade is almost identical to the legendary grenade Bonus Package, only this one is better than its legendary counterpart. This is because Meteor Shower not only generates more grenades but also because the base damage of these grenades is higher. As if this were not enough, this grenade mod has more range and can explode its grenades in a more concentrated way, so the damage will always be higher.
These grenades, being manufactured by Torgue, can only be obtained in the explosive element.
Who should use these grenades?
Because of their long range and the amount of explosive damage they can cause, we recommend this grenade for characters that have a very high range and can throw them without exposing themselves too much. Zero is the one who benefits the most from it, as long as he has a Sniper build.
You can obtain this shield by defeating Pete the Invincible in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode or by the Seraphim vendor in True Vault Hunter Mode or other normal modes.
Being a turtle-like shield developed by Pangolin, it has enormous ability. Like its legendary counterpart, Fabled Tortoise, this shield becomes even more powerful when there are other players using the same shield, but this comes with a problem. Both shields not only increase the extra shield capacity for each player using them but also increase the movement speed penalty for using them.
Between the two shields, the Fabled Tortoise offers slightly less shielding but also a lower team movement speed penalty. On the other hand, this seraphim shield will give you a smaller movement speed penalty if you are the only one using it, so it is recommended to use it only if you are the only one who will have it.
Who should use this shield?
This shield is highly recommended for characters that are at risk of taking direct damage, but at the same time don’t depend so much on their movement speed. Axton is the best for this, as he needs the means to protect himself while his turret does the heavy damage, but he should also support it.
There are many ways to obtain this gun, but some are much easier than others. It can be obtained as a rare drop after defeating Voracidous the Invincible, Dexiduous the Invincible or Omnd-Omnd-Ohk in Ultimate Vault Hunter mode. Although these are the most difficult drops. You can also get it from the Seraph Vendor in the Hunter’s Grotto.
This gun, which always has a corrosive effect, has a huge elemental damage rate and is destructive against armored enemies or robots. In exchange for this, it has really low base damage. Despite this, the weapon has the highest elemental damage per second in the game, although you can only use it at short range, as the ammunition explodes after a certain amount of distance.
Who should use this gun?
This gun is recommended for characters who can take advantage of its short range and not be afraid of dying on the spot. The best character to use it safely is definitely Maya, who can also take advantage and increase her elemental damage using her Phaselock.
Also, this gun is not recommended at higher levels of the game, as the base health and health regen of the enemies will increase a lot more and this gun will be overshadowed by other weapons that are not even legendary, but rare. Anyway, you can use it until level 50, when it will still be very useful.
Like all these weapons, you can get it by buying it from the Seraph vendor in Oasis from Captain Scarlett’s DLC. If you want to get it as a drop, it will rarely be Master Gee The Invincible who will drop it for you.
This gun has a very high base damage and your projectiles will be huge, but in exchange for this, your shots will become really very slow, it has a very high recoil and the reload speed is also quite low. Anyway, as it always comes with the fire effect, it is the best non-legendary weapon against unarmored and unshielded enemies, so it is worth it despite its overall speed, and even at higher levels, it is still useful.
Who should use this rifle?
Although it has a high rank, the speed of its ammunition makes it a weapon that is not recommended for use from a high rank. Therefore, characters like Zero are discarded. Because of its high damage, Salvador or Maya can make great use of it, but only if the situation warrants it, since against armored enemies, this weapon is not very good.
These were the best Seraph weapons of the game! Do you think any of them are missing? Tell us in the comments!
