Iron is the title of a group of commonpistols in Borderlands 2 manufactured exclusively by Jakobs with their signature long barrel. The Iron is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
Usage & Description
Irons are thoroughbred Jakobs pistols. They have very high damage and accuracy, although the fire rate is capped more severely. This is only noticeable, however, when one is using a macro or a modded controller or has a very fast trigger finger. They make fine sidearms and are suitable for virtually all situations. One must remember that it is a very accurate weapon so it is not particularly useful at close quarters.
As with all pistols that use the Jakobs barrel, the Iron is only available at green or higher rarities.
