The Boring Gun is a legendary shotgun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Torgue in Borderlands 3. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

This is beyond science. – Increased splash damage radius. Shoots 3 sawblades that drop to the ground and move vertically in a cone. The sawblades will explode upon hitting an enemy or a short period of time after firing.

Description & Usage

The projectile pattern of the Boring Gun.

The Boring Gun should be handled like a Shredda rocket launcher due to its unique projectiles. In comparison to a Shredda, The Boring Gun has the benefit of a significantly larger ammo capacity, faster firing and reload speeds, a higher projectile count and no initial wind-up time, making it a good substitute for a heavy weapon.

The Boring Gun can decimate grounded enemies if all three sawblades hit, and is very effective in enclosed spaces since the sawblades will move around. It is deadly against shielded foes such as Enforcers, rendering their held shield useless as it travels underneath. However, it can be a challenging weapon to use due to its odd projectile pattern and spread, and it is also completely ineffective against aerial enemies. It is also capable of crippling the user if the sawblades detonate at close range. As such, it is recommended to use this gun 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.
