Revolver is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel that always have either white, green or purple rarity. They are manufactured exclusively by Jakobs and commonly spawn with the Dahl, Maliwan, Tediore, and bandit/scav barrels.

Usage & Description

The Revolver is one of the first weapons found in the game as Knuckle Dragger will always drop one when killed. Like most Jakobs weapons, it fires as fast as one can pull the trigger having the unique fanning animation typical of a Jakobs handgun.

Depending on the barrel used, the base stats of this weapon can vary as follows (not counting any accessories that might be attached):

  • Tediore barrel: No changes.
  • Maliwan barrel: Slight increase in accuracy.
  • Bandit/scav barrel: Increases damage at the cost of accuracy.
  • Dahl barrel: Increased accuracy and recovery rate at the cost of damage. Reduced recoil.

Notable Variants

  • Law - Unique pistol with +100% melee damage bonus. Grants health regeneration from melee hits if equipped with the Order shield.
  • Judge - Unique pistol with increased critical hit damage and projectile velocity.


  • The Revolver is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
  • Blue rarity variants will be named as the Wheelgun and can spawn with the same parts that are available to the Revolver.
  • Although the Revolver cannot spawn with an element, the Maliwan barrel's bonus to elemental status effect damage is still applied to it.
