Martyrs are enemies encountered in Borderlands 3. They are the most devoted members of the COV forces, willing to sacrifice their lives in service of the Calypsos.



Martyrs are a specialized type of psycho whose only purpose on the battlefield is to reach their target and detonate an explosive charge in a suicide attack. While the explosion caused has a limited range and only deals a moderate amount of damage, Martyrs should be treated as a priority target when present.

If a Martyr cannot reach its target, they may throw bundles of dynamite that explode on impact.


  • A Martyr will drop their explosives when knocked down but will pull out another charge and continue chasing when they get up.
