The Pestilent Defiler is a Hardmode gun that is dropped by The Plaguebringer Goliath. It fills the role of a sniper rifle, slowly firing extremely powerful shots at high velocity. In addition to its high damage, the Pestilent Defiler inflicts the Plague, Poisoned and Venom debuffs, causing up to 360 additional damage over several seconds. This projectile also splits into three smaller projectiles on impact that fly in random directions, potentially hitting other nearby enemies. Its extreme knockback helps repel enemies, making its slow fire rate more manageable.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Pestilent Defiler can hit the same enemy multiple times due to its splitting projectiles.
  • The Pestilent Defiler is based on a legendary pistol from Borderlands, known as the Defiler.
