The Moon Buggy is a type of drivable vehicle. Its appearance is that of a dune buggy with a mounted turret equipped with a miniature satellite dish and oversized wheels.


Moon Runners are ostensibly designed by Elpis's resident mechanic, Janey Springs. They are digistructed at Moon Zoomy terminals throughout Elpis and provide versatile overland transportation. These will be the first types of vehicles available during the course of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Moon Buggies can seat up to two people; one to drive and one to man the turret. They have a durable suspension, allowing large jumps with minimal vehicle damage. They are also equipped with afterburners mounted to the rear of the runner, allowing temporary faster movement speed at the cost of maneuverability.

Scavs in Laser Moon Buggies may be encountered in Triton Flats and possibly other areas. The same vehicle might also be driven by certain unique enemies.

The Moon Buggy has a front MG which has limited coverage and low accuracy, dealing low non-elemental damage with a high rate of fire. The turret seat can either be a Dahl Incendiary Blaster Laser, or a Missile pod which fires manually-guided explosive rockets. When a Vault Hunter is in the turret seat, the missiles follow the crosshairs of the turret user, and using the aim button can make the blaster more accurate.

Moon Buggies handle very much like the Outrunners of Borderlands 2 and serve the same general function in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.


The following skins are available for the Moon Buggy, either by default or through finding them in lootable objects or from enemy drops.  Once one character unlocks a skin, it is available for all characters. There are 68 total skins available. These skins start dropping once the player has unlocked the buggy in normal mode.
