Borderlands 3 Fl4k Class Mods RANKING & REVIEW

If you’re playing Borderlands 3 as Fl4k, you’re going to want to know which class mods you should be looking for. While you find a number of green, blue and purple class mods throughout the game, legendary class mods provide unique perks that the common mods just can’t live up to. Most characters in Borderlands 3 at this point have about 8 legendary class mods, and Fl4k is no exception. So which are the best legendary class mods for Fl4k in Borderlands 3? Read on to find out.

8. Friend-Bot


Increases pet damage. Your pet does a pretty insignificant amount of damage even during the main story, let alone on Mayhem Mode. This increase does absolutely nothing to change that. On top of that, the skills Friend-Bot gives bonuses to are not good skills. It’s a mod specifically for Fl4k’s Master tree, which is easily his weakest tree. Unless you’re specced heavily into Master, this mod is not even a little bit good.

7. Red Fang

If you’re using Gamma Burst (why), Fl4k’s pets taunt enemies (who cares). The skills it gives bonuses to are mediocre. If you’re going for a beastmaster build (again, why), you might find some utility in this mod, but even then, its bonus is pretty useless. If you’re not using Gamma Burst, a purple is better. It’s hard to decide which mod is worse: this or Friend-Bot. At least this one gives some kind of utility instead of a useless minor pet damage buff.

6. St4ckbot – Borderlands 3 Fl4k Class Mods

St4ckbot should be amazing but it’s actually pretty terrible. The bonus isn’t that significant, and the stacks drop constantly. They drop if you have any dots active. They drop if you throw a grenade. If you’re using a shotgun or masher pistol (which most Fl4ks do), it drops if even one pellet doesn’t crit. This mod is only mildly useful against huge, stationary bosses with obvious weak points. Which means pretty much only Graveward. The only reason it’s even this high on the list is because the other mods beneath it are even more terrible.

5. DE4DEYE – Borderlands 3 Fl4k Class Mods

35% increased damage to enemies over 75% health. It’s a decent damage bonus and it helps melt through shields and armor. It helps you get through the first third of boss fights. It’s not exceptional, but you can’t really argue that it’s useless. It gives bonuses to pretty good skills. Not flashy, doesn’t change any of Fl4k’s major mechanics in any way, but it helps get the job done. Overall it’s a pretty good option if you don’t have anything better available.

4. Rakk Commander

Rakk Commander gives you an extra charge of Rakk Attack. The problem is, Rakk Attack’s Action Skill cooldown is already super short. You don’t really need an extra charge. Additionally, there’s a much better Rakk Attack mod in the game (R4kk P4k). Nevertheless, it is a fun little damage increase and it’s better than the other mods ranked lower on this list. Its skill bonuses are mediocre. If you’re using Rakk Attack, use any of the mods ranked higher here. If you don’t have them yet, use this for a while.

3. Cosmic Stalker – Borderlands 3 Fl4k Class Mods

Cosmic Stalker is a very good mod. Definitely better than any random purple you’re going to find. The increase to kill skills is great for any build that dives into the red tree. The problem is that Cosmic Stalker is just a less good version of the Bounty Hunter mod. If you don’t have the Bounty Hunter, and you’re looking for a poor man’s version, Cosmic Stalker is that. It’s more or less tied with R4kk P4k in terms of overall usefulness, but since Cosmic Stalker is the 2nd best mod to upgrade your Hunter Skills and the R4kk P4k has a unique and fun mechanic, it lands in the 3rd spot.

2. R4kk P4k

Do you like rakks? Do you like launching rakks at enemies? Do you like even more rakks? If you’re using the Rakk Attack Action Skill instead of Fade Away (for some reason), this mod makes the rakks drastically better. When your rakk connects, it spawns 2 more rakks. Rakks everywhere. It also gives bonuses to good skills. It’s not as good as the Bounty Hunter, even with a rakk build, but it’s just… so many rakks. It’s worth it for the comedy factor alone, and it’s actually pretty strong to boot.

1. Bounty Hunter

Bounty Hunter is pretty much universally the best class mod for Fl4k no matter what build you’re going. You’re almost always going to pick up at least a few hunter skills, so having them up virtually all the time instead of just after kills is a pretty significant bonus. It’s not as huge of a bonus as Zane’s Seein’ Dead, which has a pretty similar effect, but it’s quite strong nonetheless. On top of that, treating bosses as every enemy type is a very strong bonus when combined with Hunter’s Eye. The skill bonuses are also great skills for DPS. Fl4k’s best class mod overall for sure.

Anyway, that about does it for the best class mods for Fl4k in Borderlands 3. Be sure to check out the Games Section for more content like this and also check out the Borderlands 3 Section for game guides for Borderlands including builds, tips, best guns, character reviews and more.
