COV Gun Features

The Children of the Vault (COV) manufacturer replaces the Bandit manufacturer from the previous Borderlands games and as such, share many similar features. The unique selling point of COV guns however are their ability to be used without reloading, that means you keep firing until you’re out of ammo or the gun heats up. A heat gauge can be found above your ammo count and if you let it heat up, it has the possibility of breaking the weapon so take extra care when using these weapons.
