The Avalanche is a Legendary item in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Maliwan Shield is a powerful shield that combines the defining traits of Maylay, Nova and Spike shields. It is an advantageous shield for melee-focused Vault Hunters because of its immense roid damage coupled with the potential to freeze attackers.The Avalanche has a modest shield capacity, while its recharge time is pretty long this is beneficial for taking advantage of the roid bonus damage.
Special Weapon Effects:
“I’ll bury you.”
It is a combination of the Maylay, Nova (cryo), and Spike (cryo) shield types. Extremely high roid damage, increased nova damage and increased spike damage. Greatly increased recharge delay.

- The Avalanche uses the same material as the Bigg Thumppr.

- It is the only Maylay Shield manufactured by Maliwan.
- The Avalanche functions similarly to the Hide of Terramorphous, albeit with the Cryo element instead of Incendiary.
