Pepperbox is the title of a group of glitch pistols in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Jakobs, and feature the Vladof barrel. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.


  • This gun cannot be obtained by legitimate means in Borderlands 2. It can only be obtained through third party programs or by trading with someone who has it. This form of the Pepperbox was able to have an elemental effect.
  • It can be obtained in Claptastic Voyage and is of the new weapon rarity level, glitch.
  • Pepperbox pistols in The Pre-Sequel fire two bullets per shot at the cost of 2 ammo per shot.


  • The Pepperbox was meant to be the title of any Jakobs weapon that used the Vladof barrel. It was cut from Borderlands 2 presumably due to having an increased fire rate on a Jakobs gun being pointless, as players could not achieve higher fire rates physically on most Jakobs pistols anyway.
  • In real life, pepperbox pistols were guns that had multiple barrels. Revolver models had a separate barrel for each chamber, while more complex models had as many as over 20 fixed barrels, although some revolver models also had many barrels.
