1340 Shield Is a unique absorb shield in Borderlands 2 manufactured by Vladof. It is obtained from the mission Out of Body Experience located in Bloodshot Ramparts, if the AI core is given to Dr. Zed.

Special Shield Effects

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. – Unique voice module. It will speak in the voice of Loader #1340.

Usage & Description

The 1340 shield is useful when not paying attention to the shield's charge bar, since running low, becoming depleted, taking elemental damage, or becoming recharged triggers a voice cue. Other than the unique voice module, the shield's stats seem to be in a similar range to those of any other blue absorb shield.



Depleted Recharged

"Sorry boss! I'm gone!"
"Aw, crap!"
"Outta Shields!"
"Shields gone, boss!"
"Begone, prepare!"

"Be careful, boss"

"I'm back, baby!"
"Sexy and you know it"
"Come at me."
"Full shields."

Hit by Corrosive Hit by Fire Hit by Shock Hit by Slag

"Acid, huh? Nerds."
"Corrosive's no biggie."
"I laugh at corrosion. Ha!"

"I think we are corroded."

"Corroded. Boring."

"Fire never hurt anybody."
"You're on fire. Big deal."
"This isn't so bad."

"Kinda warm in here."


"This stuff's pretty gross."

"You alright, boss?"


  • Despite being a Vladof absorb shield, it uses the core and skin of a Hyperion shield.
