Borderlands Wiki

Corinthian is the title of a group of sniper rifles in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Maliwan and feature the Jakobs barrel.

Usage & Description[]

The Corinthian is moderately powerful, but can have reduced accuracy and a lower damage rate as a result of the Jakobs barrel. However, certain elements can make this rifle very useful, such as slag.


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


In Borderlands 2, Mordecai uses a Corinthian to support the Vault Hunters (missions A Train to Catch, Wildlife Preservation and The Talon of God). It also can be seen in Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary cutscenes. His gun has a slag elemental capacitor, all Jakobs parts, and the critical hit bipod accessory. Mordecai's Corinthian is treated as a seperate weapon from normal ones and is not obtainable.
