For the enemy in Borderlands 3, see Ravager (enemy).

Ravager is the title of a group of common shotguns in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Torgue and feature the quad (Torgue) barrel.

Usage & Description

Ravagers deal immense close-range damage with the bonus explosive splash, making them among the most powerful non-legendary shotguns in the game in terms of raw output. This comes at the cost of a low fire rate and heavy ammo consumption at 4 per shot. Ravagers are naturally effective against larger enemies due to their spread and at distances past point-blank or close-range, the wielder should lead the target to ensure multiple pellets hit.

The Ravager can trigger either one of Krieg's skils Blood Bath, Blood Overdrive, or both depending on how an enemy is killed, with a direct hit or by the splash damage of one of the pellets.

Gaige's Close Enough works with these explosive bullets, too, causing them to ricochet and explode on target from maximum range for devastating damage. Salvador's Keep Firing... can also increase its low fire rate and reload speed, allowing it to be much more effective and versatile.

  • The weapon card's listed damage does not account for the explosive damage bonus and is therefore lower than the actual damage output.
