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

Usage & Description

Tends to have a faster rate of fire, more semi-auto as opposed to bolt action in other Jakobs sniper rifles. In some cases, the Jakobs adage "fires as fast as you can pull the trigger" can almost be applied to this weapon, making it useful for snipers who want to retain the relatively high damage of a Jakobs weapon, but still be able to fire off multiple shots in quick succession.
