Attitude is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Hyperion with old-style materials and prefixes and feature the Jakobs barrel.

Usage & Description

Old-style Hyperion's pistols have higher damage output at the cost of significantly lower accuracy and fire rate than their modern analogs. They also have a limited version of Hyperion's "reverse recoil" when aimed down the sights only.

The Attitude uses the long, high-power, high-accuracy Jakobs barrel, resulting in a potent long-range pistol with a low fire rate but high damage, coupled to the standard Hyperion medium-high-capacity magazine. While unlikely to challenge an Iron in terms of raw power, a Attitude can lay down shots for far longer.


  • The Attitude is only available at green or higher rarity.
  • In addition to the Attitude, a variant of this weapon exists in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as the Leverage, made by the "new" Hyperion.
  • The Attitude is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
  • Attitudes have hexagonal stabilizers attached, which gradually spread open as they fire. This feature is common for E-tech weapons introduced in Borderlands 2. However, unlike the E-tech pistols, stabilizers' interiors do not glow and the Attitudes are capable of scoring critical hits.
