Troublemaker is the title of a group of common pistols in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Vladof, and feature the Torgue barrel.

Usage & Description[]

The Troublemaker combines high damage (for a fully-automatic pistol) with a high rate of fire to make a very useful weapon. Magazine size is not as generous as on bandit-made weapons, but recoil (though high) is more controllable and accuracy is higher.

Being that this is one of the most powerful Vladof handguns (amongst the common ones), it is best suited with the double tap, damage amplifier or buttstock accessories; the double tap being the underslung cylinder identical to a laser sight (but off) which gives the gun the prefix "Dva", the damage amplifier being the stud on the side of the barrel that gives the gun the prefix "Purging" and the buttstock being the one that increases accuracy and reduces recoil while giving the gun the prefix "Resolute".


  • The Troublemaker is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
