Bounty of Blood - World Drops are items that drop from any suitable Loot Source, within the Bounty of Blood DLC, in addition to their dedicated sources.
There are 18 weapons in the Bounty of Blood - World Drop pool, so for farming a specific weapon it's best to seek out its dedicated Source.
If you still want to test your luck, you should equip a Shlooter Artifact to increase your chance of a World Drop by 1000%.
