Splitter is the title of a group of common lasers in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured by Dahl, Maliwan, Hyperion and Tediore, and feature the Tediore barrel "Splitter".

Usage & Description

Splitter lasers fire multiple lasers with a single trigger pull at the cost of 3 ammo per shot. This makes them effective as a close-range weapon where they can catch targets in their energy spread or as a medium-range weapon against large enemies.

Depending on the manufacturer of the laser's body, the Beam lasers can spawn with manufacturer-specific gimmicks:

  • Dahl Splitters fire in bursts when zoomed in and have reduced recoil. It also comes with the ability to penetrate through enemy targets, inflicting damage to several enemies at once.
  • Hyperion Splitters start with a low accuracy that improves as the weapon is fired for longer. It also has a 50% bonus to critical hit damage (60% with a Hyperion stock).
  • Maliwan Splitters have an increase in elemental damage and chance, making it reliable for inflicting elemental status effects. It also has a continuous damage bonus that deals more damage the longer the trigger is held.
  • Tediore Splitters fire 6 beams per shot as opposed to 3 with a non-Tediore body laser. When reloaded, the weapon is thrown and acts like a Tesla grenade.
