Dog is a unique shotgun manufactured by Bandit. It is found as a common drop from Assassin Rouf located in Southpaw Steam & Power and Digistruct Peak.

Special Weapon effects[]

Because one barrel ain't enough, and two is too few. – Increased damage, fire rate and magazine size.

Usage & Description[]

The Dog is a powerful Bandit shotgun that can appear very early in the game, with attributes superior to a blue-rarity Bandit shotgun with otherwise equal parts (Room Clener). A purple-rarity Bandit Room Clener can have a tighter spread and do greater damage, but will still take second place to the Dog on magazine size and rate of fire.


  • The weapon's full title in the game files is "Thre Dog", but Thre is a prefix and is overwritten if the weapon spawns with an accessory or elemental capacitor.
  • Three Dog is the name of the radio host for the 'Galaxy News Radio', a popular radio station prominent in the game Fallout 3. One of his quotes is: "Three Dog: Because one dog ain't enough, and two is too low, it's Three Dog!"
  • The weapon was dropped by Captain Flynt on Day 3 of the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt.
  • A hotfix on 14 October 2013 as part of the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt gave the Dog and all other bandit shotguns one more shot in the magazine and a slightly faster reload.
