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. – Discarded guns explode on impact and split into 4 "Tediore Spider" turrets that shoot until empty, and then jump at the nearest enemy, dealing damage.


Thrown weapon MIRVs into 4 projectiles that home in on targets.

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.


Variants for which discarded weapon splits into four turrets ("Tediore Spider"), the following lines can be heard:

Tediore Spider

Tediore Spider turret

  • You will die. YOU. WILL. DIE.
  • We are Tediore.
  • Accept your fate.
  • We will get you!
  • Shooty time!
  • Enemy sighted.
  • Blood! I want blood!
  • I live to kill.
  • Here comes that boi.
  • To live? To die!


  • This weapon always spawns with the "++" suffix.
  • The glitch causes that the gun from Dead Claptrap challenges is acquired twice: first directly and then via mail from VR-0N1CA.


  • The Baby Maker is a returning weapon from Borderlands 2 but as a pistol instead of a submachine gun.
