Borderlands Wiki
For the pearlescent assault rifle in Borderlands 2, see Sawbar.

Sawbar is a legendary assault rifle manufactured by COV. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Borman Nates located in Meridian Outskirts on Promethea.

Special Weapon Effects

Suppressing fires! – Always incendiary, reduced overheat rate. At long distance, shots fired split into three projectiles that travel out at an angle before exploding.

Usage & Description

At the appropriate distance, the Sawbar is capable of hitting enemies behind cover with the explosions, making it effective against large enemies at the proper range.


  • The Sawbar is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2 but as a legendary weapon instead of pearlescent.
  • After the 3/12/2020 hotfix, the Sawbar had its damage increased and its projectile split delay reduced.
