Confidence is the title of a group of common submachine guns in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured exclusively by Hyperion with old-style materials and prefixes and feature the Dahl barrel.

Usage & Description

Old-style Hyperion's SMGs have higher damage output at the cost of significantly lower accuracy and fire rate than their modern analogs. They also have a limited version of Hyperion's "reverse recoil" when aimed down the sights only.

This SMG does not have any stats that stand out amongst the other old-style Hyperion SMG weapons. The only aspect improved in it is a reduced recoil thanks to the Dahl barrel that it comes with.


  • In addition to the Confidence, a variant of this weapon exists as the Presence, made by the "new" Hyperion.
  • The Confidence only comes in green or higher rarity.
  • The Confidence is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
