Vault Hero is a legendary submachine gun in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Maliwan. It is obtained as a reward for claiming eight reward weapons from the Vault Insider Program.

Special Weapon Effects

(No Red Text) – Always shock and corrosive.

Usage & Description

The Vault Hero has no special effect that distinguishes it from a comparable Maliwan SMG. However, given that the Vault Hero is obtained early in the game, its shock and corrosive elements make it effective against shielded and armored enemies if no suitable weapons have been found yet.



  • The Vault Hero is one of the few legendary items to not have red text or a special effect.
