For the common assault rifle in Borderlands 2, see Gatling Gun.

Gatling Gun is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Jakobs. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Billy, the Anointed located in Jakobs Estate on Eden-6.

Special Weapon Effects

Watch me crank it, watch me roll. – Fully automatic firing mode with increased fire rate and magazine size.

Usage & Description

The Gatling gun provides an exceptional fire rate for a Jakobs weapon, with the fire rate increasing after sustained fire. Along with the high base damage, magazine size and ricochet ability, the Gatling Gun allows for a potentially powerful crowd-control weapon rivaling that of a Vladof assault rifle and should be used as such.


  • The Gatling Gun has a spooling duration before its fire rate can be reached.
  • The Gatling Gun can only spawn with the hand-crank trigger.
