For the pearlescent assault rifle in Borderlands 2, see Bearcat.

Bearcat is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Torgue. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

I love the smell of popcorn in the morning. – Fires 3 bouncing grenades in a horizontal row. Consumes 4 ammo per shot. No Alternative Fire mode.

Usage & Description

The Bearcat is an unremarkable and impractical weapon for general combat as the spread and trajectory of the grenades can make it difficult to land a hit on small or agile enemies. The heavy ammo consumption means that frequent reloads will occur.



  • The flavor text is a play on a famous quote from the movie Apocalypse Now, as well as a reference to bearcat musk glands that emit an odor reminiscent of popcorn.
  • The Bearcat is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2 but as a legendary Torgue assault rifle instead of a pearlescent Dahl assault rifle. It also now consumes 4 ammo per shot.
