Maliwan Manufacturer Overview

Maliwan weapons are THE elemental weapons of Borderlands 3. Offering the best elemental damage among all manufacturers, their weapons pack a punch but are somewhat limited by either charging time or slow projectile speed, making them not well suited for long range engagements. Despite these shortcomings, the sheer elemental damage and the versatility of dual elements make Maliwan weapons extremely desirable in any loadout.
