The Heavy Gunner is a Maliwan trooper found in Borderlands 3.



Heavy Gunners are armed with dual multi-purpose guns on their arms. They can also attack with a devastating rocket fire barrage. They can leap into the air to rapidly close in onto their targets. They are the only Maliwan Heavy that lacks an element.

The pack on a Heavy Gunner's back is his weak point. Unlike other Maliwan Heavies, the Heavy Gunner's pack cannot explode but concentrated fire on their pack will interrupt the vast majority of attacks. Heavy Gunners cannot fire a rocket barrage while their pack is being shot, giving characters an easy way to deal with their attacks.
