The Shooting Star is a Legendary item in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This Scav Shiel is a very powerful roid shield, surpassing many high-quality Maylay shields.
Special Weapon Effects:
“Don’t look up.”
Extremely high roid damage. While depleted, each melee attack that connects with a target is accompanied by a ‘shooting star’, which inflicts additional explosive damage.
How to get the The Shooting Star ?:
The Shooting Star can be obtained randomly from any suitable loot source, but has an increased chance to drop from the Lost Legion Powersuit Noob during the mission Red, then Dead on the Lunar Launching Station.
How to Grind the Shooting Star ?:
You can use the Grinder to create the Shooting Star. While there is no guaranteed recipe, you can combine 3 Purple Shields to obtain a random legendary shield.
- A hot fix issued starting from November 11 re-balanced both this shield and Bigg Thumppr, severely reducing the roid damage bonus of each shield. The Shooting Star’s roid damage at level 50 after the hot fix is approximately 15,000; before the hot fix, it averages 100,000 roid damage.
- The Shooting Star may spawn with a Maliwan capacitor, granting immunity against shock, corrosive, fire or cryo elemental damage. It may also spawn with a Torgue capacitor, granting the Blast-Proof prefix and explosive damage reduction to its wearer.
- The red flavor text is a jab at spotting actual shooting stars.
