In this guide, I will show you how to farm it, so read on…
How To Farm The Torrent SMG in BL3
The Torrent Legendary SMG can be Farmed from a number of places and bosses. basically, it is a world drop and you can get it from anywhere within the Arms Race DLC Map from the Designer’s Cut. But I will show a dedicated location to get it from. It is a chest and it has a specific location. Here is the Map Point for you for ease of reference:
It is NOT a guaranteed drop every time, so you might want to save-quit a few times before you can get it to drop. If you are very lucky, then it can happen quicker, but I am considering the normal course of action.

The Red Text Reads “haha gun go brrrr”
Weapon Overview and Tips
It is a DAHL weapon and can drop in different elements also. There are two unique things to notice about the weapon; The insane fire rate of the weapon and every tenth shot is a shock damaging bullet. The weapon indeed lives up to its quotes and indeed goes “Brrrr”. The recoil on this SMG is also bonkers, but understandable. I think they did this to balance out the insane damage it does to enemies in a very short period of time.
My build suggestion will definitely be the one with any Ammo Build. Moze is the perfect candidate for such weapons and does justice to the large volume of ammo this SMG consumes. Instead of holding down the trigger, my suggestion would be to use it in bursts to save ammo and hit accurately. if you plan on long-range encounters, this is not the one to pick. But I would definitely recommend it for your main loadout due to the shredding damage it deals to enemies, even at Mayhem level 10 with all the modifiers.
