Borderlands 3 – How to get Sand Hawk

Sand Hawk – Weapon Description

Sand Hawk is a Sniper Rifle of the Legendary or Orange rarity in Borderlands 3. The weapon arrived in Borderlands 3 with the new event called Revenge of the Cartels. This is undoubtedly one of the top tiers weapons in the game at the moment and you should definitely farm for it. The Mayhem 2.0 update has brought some really insane Legendaries to be honest. We have already covered the overpowered O.P.Q. System and the Yellowcake, so you can check them out if you want.

So what is so special about the Sand Hawk? Well, the Sand Hawk is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2. But in Borderland 2, Sand Hawk was a SMG and a not Sniper Rifle. But that doesn’t take away the fact how insanely powerful the Sand Hawk is in Borderlands 3. This weapon can be used with any build, character and play style. It can used for clearing rooms or taking down bosses, and this Sniper Rifle does it all in seconds.

This weapon shoots 9 bullets per shot that take up the shape of a flying hawk and every shot deals massive amount of damage. With the right build you can deal more than a million damage per shot. The only downside of the Sand Hawk is that it doesn’t have much range which is very strange for a Sniper Rifle. I have been using this weapon as a Shotgun to be honest.

Lets take a look at the description of Sand Hawk. The one shown here is an Anointed version called the High Capacity Vigilant Sand Hawk (Level 57):

  • Manufacturer : DAHL
  • Damage : 8408×9
  • Accuracy : 73%
  • Handling : 65%
  • Reload Time : 2.4s
  • Fire Rate : 6.64/s
  • Magazine Size : 24
  • Red Text : Wedge a pig.

Sand Hawk – Drop Location

The good thing about this weapon is that everyone who has the base Borderlands 3 game can farm for this. The Mayhem 2.0 update is a free update and you do not need and DLC or Season Pass to play it. With that being said, in order to get the Sand Hawk you can go and farm the boss called Katagawa Jr. . You can find Katagawa Jr. at Atlas HQ at Promethea. Here is the exact location of Katagawa Jr. :

But one thing you have to remember, you have to be on Mayhem Level 6 or higher in order to farm for this weapon. So you have to farm Katagawa Jr. at Mayhem Level 6 or more.
