Veritas is a unique aftermarket pistol in Borderlands 2 made by Vladof. It is obtained from the mission Clan War: Wakey Wakey located in The Dust.

Special Weapon Effects

Shoulda stopped at one. – +10% duration to Fight For Your Life for every Veritas or Aequitas equipped in the party. 10% multiplicative critical hit bonus.

Usage & Description

The Veritas is a fairly unremarkable variant of the Vladof Assassin-pattern handgun, only worth using over a standard weapon for its bonus in Fight For Your Life. It can be beneficial if a character has a spare weapon slot for it, but will quickly be exceeded in capability as the character levels.



  • The flavor text refers to The Boondock Saints series of movies, joking that they should have stopped producing them after the first, as well as being a direct quote from the first movie. The Veritas (and Aequitas) are named after the tattoos on the main characters' hands.
  • The words "Veritas" and "Aequitas" can be read on the barrel of the gun.
  • Veritas is the Latin word for truth.
