COV (Children of the Vault) is a manufacturer introduced in Borderlands 3.


COV weapons examples

As they were bandits, they scavenged enough resources in any way possible and established their own production of weapons.

Weapons of the Children of the Vault have magazine size of the reserve ammo pool, but have a risk of breaking when overheated, as well as requiring a startup when switching to a COV weapon or after a repair.

Their weapons are created from the crazy alloy of material from Pandora's dumps, alien technologies of the Vault with a futuristic design. Some COV weapon seems to even use old manufacture parts of gun from older installments.


The following are items made by COV.
