For the common sniper rifle in Borderlands 3, see Bratchny (Borderlands 3).

Bratchny is the title of a group of common sniper rifles in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Vladof and feature the Hyperion barrel.

Usage & Description

Bratchny sniper rifles use the Hyperion barrel, granting them doubled accuracy, a slight increase in recoil and a reduced fire rate.


  • The Bratchny is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.


  • In keeping with Vladof's use of Nadsat in their naming conventions, the term "brachny," or брачный - the adjective, associated with marriage in Russian. For example: "брачный контракт" = "marriage contract".
    • In A Clockwork Orange this word has an opposite meaning: translates as "bastard".
    • In Russian localization this name was changed to "soyuz" (rus. союз) to keep masculine gender in names and prefixes of items with soviet aesthetic of Vladof corporation.
