Legendary Maliwan VIP Weapon Issues (Master Thread)

So if you’re apart of the Vault Insider Program you already know about this. The Legendary Maliwan Weapon that you can get by doing the following “Claim at least eight VIP reward weapons to unlock a special Legendary Maliwan gun for Borderlands 3. The special Children of the Vault reward weapon from the Early Adopter Pack counts towards your total.”

I was wondering if anyone knew exactly where to get these weapons or anything about it if so please leave a comment or suggestions on where to find and get these weapons.

Can’t wait for BL3 :smile:

Just above that there is the free weapon spinner (which you get one spin of per season) and a header for Borderlands 2 and TPS - these use the accumulated reward points for guns in the game and tick the boxes.

So you’re saying that by playing Borderlands 2 and or TPS I can get points?

No, you get the points by redeeming codes which content creators may have, may get emailed out or may be announced on Gearbox Software Twitter, Facebook or so on.

Alternatively you get 300 by checking their twitter, facebook and instagram each week from the activities page on the VIP website.


You spend the points on the weapons there to get the ticks towards the gun in Bl3.

Yeah, you need to spend the points on guns for the boxes to get ticked - you get one for the pre-order, and one per free spin on the wheel. The remaining 4 you’d need to spend the reward points on guns for Borderlands 2 and TPS.

Now where do I spend these points for the guns? I’m also pre ordering the super deluxe $100 version and I don’t know if that’ll get me any points

The thing about that Legendary, is it going to be a level 0/1 gun? If so how long is it going to last? A trophy non the less, but I’d be a little circumspect.

I wouldn’t stress myself about that gun at all. It will be made obsolete by the time the level cap is increased. Is it a nice trophy? Yes, sure, but just like the Gearbox Weapons it won’t serve much of a purpose besides that.

Well I mean it would be something nice to show off to all my friends since it’s going to be a I think is a limited time only weapon. It also just looks like a fun weapon and something I could display on my wall in sanctuary 3.

The guns scale to your characater level. I’m hoping that you can have it across multiple characters.

still not gonna pre order for it for some”points.

I reject pre orders on games because of the state of the industry, see defective product “releases” of recent history. It’s just not worth it for some virtual tchotchke.

This is on top of “aaa” producers all rush to online streaming and each to becoming a platform nesting their players layer after layer of rents and another manipulative surveillance social media scheme the less i want out them. It’s not worth it. I’d rather play monopoly.

My last tick in the box isn’t showing up has it on yours?

I still have 2 boxes left to go as for why you cannot see it I can’t really help there. Are you sure you got all of requirements needed to have the boxes checked. Meaning getting the 8 guns (1 free check if you pre order.)

Yeah met all requirements and I check all my rewards aswell and I have 10 legendaries redeemed plus the other shiz that count toward it also

I got no clue someone’s else’s gonna have to help you with that maybe you have to wait for the release of your stuffs just bugged which would suck.

Some folks have found that logging out of shift and logging into the page again triggers a confirmation of the legendary reward.
