Handgun is the title of a group of common pistols manufactured exclusively by Tediore in Borderlands 2, and also scavs in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They can use the Tediore, Bandit (or Scav), Dahl, and Maliwan barrels. The Handgun is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

The Handgun is a very common pistol. Most variants are powerful, and very accurate, although a larger magazine size can sometimes modify this. The Handgun also uses multiple elements, one of the most effective being any variant that fires slag.

Most other manufacturers have an additional bonus to the weapon stats when they use the barrel from the same manufacturer, but the Tediore barrel does not improve this weapon's stats any further.

Notable variants

  • Borderlands 2
    • Gunerang - Legendary pistol which homes into enemies when thrown or otherwise flies back to the wielder.
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
    • Shooterang - Legendary pistol which flies around like a boomerang when thrown with a reload, bouncing off surfaces and firing constantly before exploding.
