For the legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3, see Bearcat (Borderlands 3).

Bearcat is a pearlescent assault rifle manufactured by Dahl. The Bearcat can be obtained randomly from any suitable loot source, but has a higher chance to drop from legendary loot midgets and 010011110100110101000111010101110101010001001000, and Uranus in Helios Fallen.

Special Weapon Effects

I love the smell of popcorn in the morning. – Fires three grenades per shot and slightly increased magazine size. Consumes six ammo per shot.

Usage & Description

The Bearcat is largely similar to a Grenadier. The main differences are its increased grenade count and reduced ammo consumption of 2 bullets per grenade compared to an equivalent Grenadier's 3 bullets per grenade. It is best used at short range, as its accuracy is canceled out by its spread.


  • Neither skills that specifically boost gun damage, such as Maya's Reaper, or skills that boost grenade damage, such as Axton's Steady, will boost the damage of the weapon. However, more general damage bonuses, and elemental bonuses, will still function normally.
  • The Bearcat doesn't have a unique skin like most first generation pearlescents. It uses a skin of a purple Dahl Weapon.
  • A Bearcat without an elemental capacitor will not have the colored outlines for explosive when held, dropped or inspected. In this case, it is considered to be both explosive and non-elemental for the purposes of skills, taking bonuses from both explosive-boosting skills and relics, as well as non-elemental boosts from Axton's Duty Calls skill.
  • The Bearcat's grenades reccieve full amp damage bonus, even though they are listed projectiles.


  • The flavor text is a reference to bearcat musk glands that emit an odor reminiscent of popcorn.
  • It is similar to the Jackal shotgun from Borderlands, as both are manufactured by Dahl, pearlescent in rarity and fire grenade projectiles.
