RPG is the title of a group of common rocket launchers in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Vladof and can spawn with either the Tediore or bandit/scav barrels.

Usage & Description[]

Depending on which type of barrel the RPG spawns with, the rockets fired can have varying properties:

  • Tediore – Does nothing additional.
  • Bandit/scav – Increased damage and reduced accuracy.


  • Every third rocket will be a free rocket that won't consume ammo regardless of the magazine capacity or the time at which it is reloaded. This means that if the launcher is reloaded early, the gun will still register the number of shots before the next free rocket (which in turn means that free rocket will not be lost from reloading). This causes the gun to sometimes fail to automatically reload when it depletes the magazine because it registers the next shot as a free shot when the magazine is empty.
  • blue or purple rarity RPGs all have the same material.
  • The RPG is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
