Borderlands 3 Legendary Artifact - Deathless

About the Deathless:

The Deathless is a Legendary Item in Borderlands 3. This Eridian Artifact lowers your health to 1HP in exchange for that you will receive damage and shield boosts. The Deathless is a high risk /reward artifact that can be taken advantage off since some skills provide greater boosts based the lower your health is.

Special Weapon Effect:

“What do we say to the God of Death?”

  • Reduces character health to 1.
  • Increases shield capacity by 100%.
  • Increases shield recharge rate by 25%, decreases recharge delay by 25%.

How to get the Deathless?:

The Deathless can be obtained from any loot source but has a 10% chance of dropping from Phoenix who is located in The Splinterlands on Pandora. Phoenix is one of the Sir Hammerlock crew challenges.


  • This artifact can be very powerful with skills such as Moze’s Desperate Measures, which increases gun damage based on missing health.
  • Since the character’s max health is not set to 1, only that they cannot be healed past 1, skills which scale with max health can also be powerful.
  • Since your Health is low, having a Stop-Gap shield equipped can be very useful as it protects your life points on shield break.
