The Buttplug is a unique masher pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs. It is obtained from the mission Dump on Dumptruck located in The Droughts, if the optional objective of shooting The Holy Dumptruck in the ass is completed.

Special Weapon Effects[]

You plug 'em, and they'll be on their butt. – +110% melee damage. Fires six pellets per shot with reduced damage. Does double melee damage when used from behind. Has fixed parts.

Usage & Description[]

The Buttplug is a good early-game choice for melee oriented characters with its guaranteed blade accessory and increased melee damage for rear enemy hits. The Buttplug does significantly less bullet damage when compared to mashers of similar levels, getting most of its damage from its melee attachment. While it is very good in close quarters, the Buttplug can be borderline unusable at range due to its decreased bullet damage and incredibly low accuracy.

To make the most out of the Buttplug, it is recommended to either shoot or stab opponents directly in order to stun them long enough to get behind them and stab them in the back. A few shots from the Buttplug at close quarters will typically ragdoll opponents, making it much easier to melee them.


  • As all of the Buttplug's parts are fixed, two copies at the same level will have identical stats.
  • The Buttplug is internally categorized as a shotgun instead of a pistol. As such, it will benefit from any skills or gear that boosts shotgun damage.
  • Higher level Buttplugs can be obtained through Crazy Earl's Veteran Rewards Vendor on Sanctuary III.


  • A buttplug is a sex toy that is designed to be inserted into the rectum for sexual pleasure. This fits the general theme of the quest that rewards the weapon, as it focuses on butt jokes in general.
  • The Buttplug is the first Masher that can be obtained by the player.
