[Guide] Vehicle parts and locations

I’ve been looking around and haven’t seen many guides and nothing about vehicle parts, so here is a work in progress, badly formatted guide to vehicle parts!

Edit: alot of these can be aquired in multiple different places, on non unique/rare spawns, example would be the technical mods, fuel barrel and toxic booster, which could spawn on most of the common cov technicals on eden-6, or the tesla coil for outrunner who seems to be able to spawn rarely on pandora
As such, the locations will only reflect places ive personnally been able to find them or places people confirm have spawn, when unsure ill keep a ? next to them

Note: anything found on ascension bluff might not come on the first visit, but when it gets scaled to level 30, so if you want to try farming the unscaled one to see what spawns there, tell me the results! But for now note that while twitchy wheel spawns on any outrunner spawn, everything else seems level/zone gated

Cyclones get a blade wheel and a thick wheel (I think the thick wheel came from Eden-6. Blade wheel I’ve seen on Nekrotafeyo I think.)
Cyclones also get an explosive blade launcher.

Outrunners get a energy blade booster (I think that was from a scavenged Eden-6 one, not a hijack)

I think, and I may be wrong, Technicals get a shock booster that drops shock boosters (like the WTF did) from Nekrotafeyo at the Maliwan complex there. I’ll check what I have unlocked when I get home.
Technicals get a tire launcher too. (I think that was from the Homestead mission location garage)

I think there’s some randomness to the vehicle part spawns. On one of my playthroughs so far I’ve gotten the outrunner tesla coil in Ascension Bluff.

im not that far in yet (finishing up skywell) but i was waiting on someone and just got my ok to do all of it, so ill update this once i get there, but thanks for the info

really… thats interesting.
the tesla was from a maliwan runner so if you really got one there, then maybe some are
though im sure hover only start to pop up once you get to promethea, maybe the tesla is early but rare af

I’m not 100% sure if they’re all right. I went through once and I’m working off memory when that was a “well if I’m here I might as well grab it” rather than taking note.

If my Moze finds any I’ll drop as accurate a bit of information as I can. Though I may get beaten to the punch as work leaves me little play time.

I just got the twitchy wheels for the buggy on Pandora in the droughts by the highway teleport. Took a few spawns but they popped.

so funny story, i was just looking up this thread to use it for farming locations on technical part locations and i happened to be fast traveling back and forth from meridian outskirts to neon arterial in promethea to get the heavy armor and the toxic booster, turns out the 2nd driver weapon spawns in neon arterial for the technical on the non-toxic technicals (i was just capturing them all even if it wasnt what i wanted) ill post it in the format of the post to add onto it

also just got the twitchy wheels from meridian outskirts for the outrunner

-Twitchy Wheels
Steerable rear wheels for extra maneuverability.
Found on: COV Twitch Runner
Location: Promethea, Meridian Outskirts

Updated, thanks for the help!

about the twitchy wheels though, seems like as long as a outrunner spawns, it can be twitchy wheels and i have no idea how to put that in

Any outrunner spawn? Since they are a random part option.


I know there’s a vehicle in Devil’s Razor (Technical) but I’m not sure what the parts are. Nekrotafeyo has a shock boost technical I believe. (needs confirming)
So if anyone is in those areas it could be worth nabbing them to see what it gives.

I found the third cyclone weapon.

-Explosive Needle Launcher
Shoots needles with a timed explosive that stick to surfaces or enemies.
Found on: Maliwan Cyclones
Location: Promethea, Meridian Metroplex (True Vault Hunter Mode)

the power cell boost is an outrunner mod on Nekrotafeyo not a technical mod like people are thinking
mods are more common spawning after you acquire them
Lazer wings are found on the outrunner on jungle planet main area on a tower only accessed by a jump I suggest getting a hover cyclone to reach easy no boosting

Your missing Runner turret weapon can be found on the last planet by hijacking the runners there. Though its hard to tell because of the description you gave to the swarmer and I don’t remember the name off hand. I remember 1 was laser guided by the gunner seat and that came from there. CoV had a sort of shotgun missile launcher that the gunner could change the firing pattern.

Your missing runner booster I think also came from the last planet and caused a shock pulse behind you when used.

Your missing Technical turret weapon is the tire bomb. It throws an explosive tire that continues to roll after hitting the ground until it collides with something. Though the game seems to count water on promethia as an object causing them to behave like barrels there. I think this came from a Hijack target crew mission near Roland’s Rest.

Your missing Cyclone weapon is an explosive spike launcher. These can be found on Maliwan Cyclones. However I didn’t see one until I hit the last planet.

The missing cyclone mod is a digibooster. Its a hijack target crew mission on the last planet. Effect makes the cyclone warp forward in short bursts.

I haven’t found the missing tire mod and cant remember if I had a missing mod option on the technical. I am still trying to fill out the paint jobs list also.

still working towards that last planet, no idea how close i am though

I’ve beaten the game but I’m still missing two technical mods and one technical wheel. I’ve searched everywhere and couldn’t anything

if you arent missing the ones listed here, then they should be findable in the neto-place i havent got to yet, or you should be able to find them in tvhmas early as the vehicles spawns, which is promethea outskirts

So an update to the runner turret weapons. CoV runners can spawn with a Shotgun Rocket. Maliwan runners can spawn with the Swarmer. The runner mod mentioned was called Energy Cells and also can be found on Maliwan Runners.

I am missing 1 tire and 1 mod on Technicals currently which means I’ve either missed a crew challenge somewhere or I need to hijack more vehicles driven by enemies.

I’m also missing a between 4-8 paintjobs per vehicle I think which a lot of them feel like tempting RNG hoping enemies spawn with it.

I’d not be too surprised if they were manufacturers loyalty bonuses for using a manufacturer enough. Entirely speculation mind.

I’ve had guns and trinkets so far. (Though I think trinkets may have been Moxxi and CoV radio towers)

I think I have a paintjob already for every manufacturer on each vehicle. The last random one I found was patterned after the Blue Angels (Navy version of Thunderbirds) on a technical I um… “found” with some CoV in it after I shot the heads off all the passengers then pulled the driver out and threw them to the ground before running over them with their own truck… >.>
