For the similarly named legendary submachine gun in Borderlands 2, see Baby Maker.

Baby Maker is a legendary pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Tediore.
It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source. The Baby Maker can also obtained by completing all of the Dead Claptrap challenges.

Special Weapon Effects

Safety off. – Always comes with either the Leg or Homing module. Consumes up to three additional magazines upon reload, with the on-reload effect varying based on the module the weapon comes with.

Usage & Description

While the Baby Maker's special effect can be used for crowd control, extended use will require a constant supply of ammo as the 4 child spawns will each consume a magazine's worth of ammo in addition to the gun's reload.

  • Leg module variants split into 4 weapons which jump at enemies and explode.
  • Homing module variants spawns 4 homing MIRVs that pursue enemies and explode on contact.


  • This weapon always spawns with the "++" suffix.
  • The amount of additional magazines used is dependent on the amount of bullets left in the magazine. A full magazine will deplete three additional magazines from the player's reserve, while an empty magazine will not use additional ammo.
  • If obtained via completing the Dead Claptrap challenges, the weapon will be given out twice - once by VR-0N1CA through the mail, and another by Claptrap. In this case, these weapons will have identical stats.


  • The Baby Maker is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2 but as a pistol instead of a submachine gun.
  • The flavor text is a double entendre, as it can refer to the gun's safety mechanism being turned off for combat, or the fact that pregnancies occur if contraceptives aren't used.
