BLTPS Legendary Shield - The Cradle

The Cradle is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Tediore Shield is a fairly low capacity, but fast charging shield. After the shield breaks, it gets thrown like a grenade, exploding with an Explosive Nova.

Element:

Explosive

Special Weapon Effects:

” …to the grave.”
When the shield is depleted, the shield is tossed in a similar fashion to other Tediore weapons to cause an explosion.

How to Grind the Cradle ?:

You can use the Grinder to create the Cradle in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. While there is no guaranteed recipe, you can combine 3 Purple Shields to obtain a random legendary shield.

Notes:

  • A level 50 cradle will only deal about 5,000 damage making it ineffective on high-level enemies, but a low-level Cradle will work well on low-level enemies.
  • The Cradle can spawn with resistance to elemental and explosive damage.
  • The Cradle’s nova damage is boosted by grenade damage bonuses.

Trivia:

  • The Cradle’s name and flavor text comes from a common saying, “From the cradle to the grave“, which in this case, refers to the shield’s disposable aspect once depleted.
  • The Cradle is one of four weapons and items in Borderlands 2 to have unique white flavor text, with the other three being the Fibber, the Mongol, and the Unforgiven.
