The Fabled Tortoise is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Pangolin Shield has an extremely high capacity that makes you an absolute tank, however, it does slow down your movement speed. The Fabled Tortoise can give you some moderately solid defense if you use it for health gating strategies.
Special Weapon Effects:
“Win by a hare.”
Very high shield capacity, but reduced movement speed while active. Movement speed is increased beyond normal upon shield depletion. Greatly reduced health.

- The speed penalty of this shield is significantly less in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel compared to the speed reduction in Borderlands 2.
