Iron is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Jakobs and feature the Jakobs barrel.

Usage & Description[]

Irons feature good damage and accuracy though with the high recoil standard to all Jakobs weapons. While the fire rate cap of an Iron is lower than other Jakobs revolvers, this does not affect the weapon's utility.
