For the legendary pistol in Borderlands 3, see Maggie (Borderlands 3).

Maggie is a legendary pistol manufactured by Jakobs.

In Borderlands 2, Maggie is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Mick Zaford located in The Dust.
In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Maggie is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Effect

Monty's wife don't take no guff. – Fires 6 projectiles at the cost of 1 ammo, with decreased accuracy and damage per projectile.

Usage & Description

The Maggie's special effect essentially fires six standard Jakobs pistol shots at once. While there is indeed a damage penalty, the total damage of all pellets are significantly higher than Purple Jakobs Pistols. 

Due to the low accuracy, the Maggie is best used in close to medium range. When considering its high rate of fire, damage, and the Large pistol ammo pool Maggie can be effective for a shotgun replacement. 

Notes

  • If the Maggie spawns with the "Two Fer" accessory, the item card will list 10 projectiles, even though it is not firing that many.
    • This accessory will also significantly reduce weapon accuracy.
  • The Maggie is effectively identical to the Masher type revolvers from Borderlands, although the Maggie fires one less pellet than the Masher.
  • The enemy most likely to drop Maggie, Mick Zaford, can only be fought by siding with the Hodunks at the end of the Clan Wars mission arc. By doing so, players loses the ability to fight Jimbo & Tector Hodunk, who have an increased chance to drop the Slagga.
    • The Maggie can be acquired together with the Slagga in one playthrough via use of the save and exit/continue strategy. This is done by only killing Mick Zaford after siding with the Hodunks, and retrieving the gun if it drops. The option to choose a side will be restored after restarting the game.

Trivia

  • Unlike most legendary weapons, the name and flavour text are not a pop-culture reference but instead draw from in-game lore. "Monty" refers to Montgomery Jakobs, the founder of the Jakobs corporation;
    • It is confirmed in Borderlands 3 that Maggie was Montgomery's wife.
  • The Brady Games Borderlands guide refers to the Maggie as "The Last of the Famous 'Masher' Line."
  • Maggie's Special effect is similar to Skullmasher, a Legendary Jakobs Sniper Rifle.
