Extreme Hangin' Chadd is a unique pistol in Borderlands 3 manufactured by COV. Extreme Hangin' Chadd is obtained from the mission Swamp Bro located in Floodmoor Basin, on Eden-6.

Special Weapon Effects

So Chadd's not even real? – Always incendiary. Does not consume ammo. Massively extended overheat limit. Fires 2 bullets per shot.

Usage & Description

The Extreme Hangin' Chadd works as a reasonable substitute for an incendiary Infinity. The low accuracy of COV weapons makes long-range shooting impractical unless shooting at large enemies.


  • The weapon is decent on an elemental-based Amara since it is always incendiary and has infinite ammo.
  • The weapon also synergizes well with Moze's Click, Click... skill, as the weapon can be fired at maximum heat for extended periods of time.
  • The weapon should be used for short to medium-range combat with hip fire as the flames around the sights makes it difficult to aim when zoomed in.
  • The weapon can be fired even if the character is out of pistol ammo.
  • The weapon's overheat limit is around 999 shots before it breaks.


  • The name refers to a "Hanging Chad", which is a partially hole-punched ballot card (or chads) with its corners still intact.
  • The red text refers to a skit by the Derrick Comedy group where Donald Glover's character, upon realizing he was duped in an investigative sting, says: "So, Chadd's not even real? You guys just played me like a sap, for the big scoop?"
