Bangarang is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Tediore. It can be randomly obtained from any suitable loot source, but has a greater chance of dropping from Captain Thunk in Konrad's Hold.

Special Weapon Effects

To die would be a grand adventure. – Increased fire rate and reload speed. When reloaded, spins horizontally and sprays bullets while travelling in a random path, then explodes.

Usage & Description

The Bangarang has decent stats on its own and can be an effective sidearm, but is most effective on a reload throw, as it will become a moving hitbox that will constantly pepper enemies while traveling. Thrown guns can be used to easily spread status ailments or soften rooms of enemies.


  • The Bangarang will explode early if it gets into close proximity with an enemy, dealing massive splash damage.
  • Like the Gunerang, its explosion can also damage the character, but only when it also damages an enemy or NPC.


  • The weapon name and flavor text are a reference to the 1991 movie Hook.
