Aegis is the title of a group of pistols in Borderlands 2 manufactured exclusively by Maliwan. They can spawn with either Bandit, Dahl, Maliwan or Tediore barrel.

The Aegis is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

The Aegis has a somewhat slow rate of fire, however this is compensated for by a high elemental effect chance and damage on the shock, incendiary, and corrosive variants.


  • The Aegis frequently spawns at common rarity, making more powerful high-leveled versions significantly more rare.
  • Aegis deals an additional 80% splash damage. This damage is further boosted by grenade damage bonuses.
