IVF - Borderlands Legendary SMG

The IVF is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Tediore SMG has increased base stats compared to other Tediore sub-machine guns. Upon reloading you will throw the IVF away just like other Tediore weapons.  On detonation  the weapon will spawn 2 smaller guns/projectiles that will also explode. This somewhat turns this “grenade” toss into a MIRV “grenade“.


Shock, Incendiary, Corrosive, Cryo, or None

Special Weapon Effects:

Upon reloading, it is thrown like a typical Tediore weapon and explodes. The resulting explosion results in two smaller guns which also explode. The smaller guns deal reduced damage.

How to get the IVF ?:

The IVF can be obtained randomly from any suitable loot source, but has an increased chance to drop from The Bosun located in Pity’s Fall.

How to Grind the IVF ?:

You can use the Grinder to create the IVF. While there is no guaranteed recipe, you can combine 2 Legendary weapons and 1 Purple SMG to obtain a random legendary SMG. Be sure to make it a luneshine grind for a “guaranteed” legendary and also get a chance of getting a luneshine buff.



  • IVF is a common abbreviation of in vitro fertilization, the process by which an egg is fertilized outside the body. Certain fertility treatments, such as IVF, can increase the chance of conceiving twins.
