The Regulators are Mesa and Mesa Prime's signature Exalted Weapon, which are used when her Peacemaker ability is activated. Unlike other ranged weapons, the rapid-firing Regulators will automatically target and shoot at enemies within a large aiming circle directed by the player, removing the need for precise aim.
Refer to the weapon's ability page for a list of mods that affect the weapon.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Regulators appear in the Arsenal after unlocking Mesa's Peacemaker ability.
- The displayed damage number of 125 in the Arsenal is the Regulators' base damage of 50 boosted by Peacemaker's innate +150% damage bonus.
- The ammunition related statistics displayed (such as magazine size, ammunition pool and reload speed) are merely a technical formality of the stat preview screen as the weapon actually consumes 0 bullets per shot, thus allowing infinite ammo economy.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name of the Regulators might be a reference to the Regulators, a posse from the American Old West said to have been co-founded by Billy The Kid.
- Before the introduction of modable Exalted Weapons, the stats of Regulators were affected by the mods equipped on the player's Secondary weapon.
- Regulators have an alternate skin available for them in the form of the Regulators Presidio Skin that players can equip if they own the Mesa Presidio Skin.
- The Regulators Presidio Skin can be equipped regardless of whether or not the Mesa Presidio Skin is equipped.
- On Mesa Prime, the pistols are named Regulators Prime. Their stats are, however, identical to Regulators.
