Vault Hunter's
"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?"
Manufacturer: Eridian
Type: Relic
Model: Vault Hunter's
Game: Borderlands 2

The Vault Hunter's Relic is a unique relic manufactured by the Eridians. The Vault Hunter's Relic is one of the pre-order bonuses given out to all players who pre-ordered Borderlands 2 or bought the Mechromancer Pack.

Special Effect

Increases the chance of finding rare loot by 5%.


  • The wording of the effect is subtle and somewhat misleading. For each Vault Hunter's Relic present in the game, the procedural generation algorithm which creates all the loot in Borderlands 2 decreases the weight emphasis of its Common table (by 0.06). In layman's terms, 6% of loot that would have been white instead gets a free upgrade, generally to green.
  • The Vault Hunter's Relic cannot be traded or dropped normally. If swapped for a relic on the ground with a full inventory, it will disappear.
  • Multiple Vault Hunter's Relics do stack their effects in cooperative play, but the effect is negligible.
  • If the Vault Hunter's Relic is lost it can be replaced by creating a new character and transferring the newly created relic at Claptrap's Secret Stash in Sanctuary.
  • It is impossible to obtain a Vault Hunter's relic with a higher or lower loot chance.
