The projectile pattern of the Boring Gun.

The Boring Gun can be a challenging weapon to use due to its odd projectile pattern and spread. It is also completely ineffective against aerial enemies. However, it can kill aerial enemies that are in close range, such as rakk. This is not recommended due to the damage it may inflict on the character, potentially crippling them. It is deadly against shielded foes such as Enforcers, rendering their held shield useless as it travels underneath. It is recommended for use at mid range.


  • The sawblade projectiles are affected by obstacles, bumps in the terrain and gravity, and will change their course appropriately upon collision.
  • The sawblade projectiles will always drop to the ground, regardless of the direction they are shot towards.


  • The flavor text is a reference to an internet meme of the same name from a 2018 Bollywood film.
  • The name is a reference to The Boring Company, which makes the "not a flamethrower" that the Long Musket is based on.
