Try-Bolt is a legendary assault rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Torgue. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Weapon Effects

Do... or do not-bolt. – No Alternative Fire mode. Fires a burst of three sticky rockets that explode shortly after contact with an enemy or surface. Slightly increased stats.

Usage & Description

The Try-Bolt's burst fire mode makes it similar in function to a Dahl assault rifle, and gives the weapon a much higher fire rate than most standard Torgue assault rifles. Its automatic detonations make it better suited for direct damage compared to most Torgue weapons in sticky mode, although the character will not be able to stack stickies for large amounts of damage because of this.

As the rockets have reduced projectile speed, aim adjustment is required for a direct hit on small or agile enemies.



  • The flavor text is a reference to Yoda from the Star Wars franchise. The full quote is "Do, or do not. There is no try."
    • This also doubles as a word play with the weapon's name.
  • The name is a reference to the Tri-bolt in Quake Champions, which also fires a burst of 3 explosive projectiles.
