Dodge this. – Always corrosive. Fires slow-moving, homing projectiles. Upon impact, projectiles stick to the enemy (or surface) briefly before exploding, dealing corrosive damage in a small area.

Usage & Description

The Dahlminator is a standard Dahl E-tech Dart pistol with a guaranteed corrosive elemental capacitor and homing projectiles. As Dart projectiles also ricochet, this weapon is excellent at hitting enemies behind cover without much thought having to be put in to predict where the projectile will go.

As the projectiles are homing on targets, Gaige can make excellent use of this weapon by combining this with Anarchy stacks. However, at high Anarchy stack count, the initial projectile angle may be too steep to home on target before hitting an obstacle (wall/ground included).


  • No shots from this gun will trigger a critical hit, even if the dart is directly aimed at and lands on a critical point on the target, the only exception to this being if the Dahlminator is used against enemies such as crystalisks
  • A hotfix on 10/12/13 increased the stability and magazine size of the Dahlminator and all other Dahl pistols as part of the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt.


  • The flavor text is a reference to the film "The Matrix". The character Trinity says the flavor text. 1
