Aegis is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Maliwan. The Aegis spawns with the Dahl, Maliwan, Tediore, and Bandit barrels.

Usage & Description

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