Night Hawkin - About

The Legendary SMG Night Hawkin is manufactured by DAHL and comes from the Borderlands 3 Base Game.

Night Hawkin - unique Ability

Shoots bullets that deal Cryo Damage during the day and Fire Damage at night.

Item Card x1/x2/x3/x4 is misleading.
The Number of Projectiles shot changes based on the time.
When you spawn into the game the Item Card is set based on the area and time.
The Item Card doesn't change when the bullet count changes.

Arctic Prefix:
Instead of changing to fire damage it now shoots up to 3 bullets based on the time of day.

Firing Modes:
The Night Hawking can swap between either [Full-Auto & 4-Round Burst], [Full-Auto & Semi-Auto] or [4-Round Burst & Semi-Auto].
