TMP is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Vladof and commonly spawns with the Dahl, Maliwan, Tediore, and bandit / scav barrels.

Usage & Description

These are the most average pistols manufactured by Vladof. They have average accuracy, low recoil, decent magazine size and a fast reload speed. Blue quality TMPs have very high, sustained damage output even compared to any other non-Vladof pistol.

The TMP can come with a variety of barrels, each one can give the gun different properties:

  • Tediore barrel (standard) – Does nothing additional.
  • Maliwan barrel (elemental) – Increases elemental effect damage (if the weapon spawns with an element) and accuracy.
  • Dahl barrel (stable) – Increases recoil recovery rate. Reduced recoil and damage.
  • Bandit/scav barrel ("heavy") – Increases weapon damage but reduces accuracy.
