Spitter is the title of a group of common assault rifles in Borderlands 2. They are manufactured exclusively by Torgue, and use the Vladof gatling-pattern barrel.

Usage & Description[]

Rather than featuring Vladof-style fire rate acceleration, Spitters have an erratic fire rate, increasing and decreasing as the trigger is held down. They also have a chance to fire two shots in quick succession.

This weapon suffers from low accuracy but it has low recoil. It is also available only at green rarity or higher.


  • Ogre - Legendary Spitter with a 100% splash damage bonus, and a chance to randomly increase its fire rate and reload speed for a short period, during which its projectiles will also ricochet.


  • The initial sputtering style firing resembles an engine that misfires, hence the name.
