Blaster is the title of a group of common lasers in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured by Dahl, Maliwan, Hyperion and Tediore, and feature the Dahl barrel "Blaster".

Usage & Description[]

Blaster lasers fire energy bolts at a high fire rate with good projectile velocity, though the user must lead moving targets at longer ranges.

Depending on the manufacturer of the laser's body, Blaster lasers can spawn with manufacturer-specific gimmicks:

  • Hyperion Blasters retain their reverse recoil mechanic, which supports the Blaster's use of sustained fire and offsets the recoil. It also has a 50% bonus to critical hit damage (60% with a Hyperion stock).
  • Maliwan Blasters have an increase in elemental damage and chance, making it reliable for inflicting elemental status effects. Their continuous damage bonus also works as sustained fire will cause each subsequent bolt to deal more damage than the previous.
  • Dahl Blasters fire in bursts when zoomed in. They also have recoil reduction and the bolts penetrate enemies.
  • Tediore Blasters have inferior stats compared to all others, but retain the Tediore Reload-Throw gimmick, dealing more damage with more energy left in the gun.
