Borderlands 3 Legendary Shield - Old God

About the Old God:

The Old God is a Legendary Item in Borderlands 3. This Hyperion Shield doesn’t just have elemental resistants it also boosts that specific elemental damage. Therefore the Old God can be utilized as a great defensive and offensive tool making it one of the best shields in the game.

The Old God has 4 shield components, however, the 4th boost doesn’t fit on the item card. You have the ‘Old God’ component and then it can roll with 2 to 3 Hyperion shield components.

Elemental Resistance:

Incendiary, Shock, Corrosive, Cryo, or Radiation

Special Weapon Effect:

“The end comes from within”

  • Spawns with 4 buffs with 2 fixed buffs
    • +20 [Element] Damage
    • +25% Elemental Resistance
How to get the Old God?

The Old God can be obtained from any suitable loot source, as a world drop on Xylourgos, in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles DLC. But it has an increased chance of dropping from Eleanor in Hearts Desire. Eleanor has a 15% drop chance.

  1. I don’t think it’s a reference to Zeus, as it’s not only shock. I got a Radiation variant with the resist and dmg bonus, also the bottom bonus is not static, I think it’s a random perk from the normal shield pool, mine had +10% move speed when full. Old God is a common name for Lovecraftian entities and since this DLC is themed around that, I feel it is a more likely origin.

    • Thanks, I’ll remove that pre-release speculation and add the proper info once I have more concrete information.
