Adaptive Shields are a common shield type in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Anshin.

Usage & Description[]

Adaptive shields boost maximum health and also provide a set elemental resistance. Unlike regular shields with elemental resistance, this resistance is dynamic and sets to the element the wearer was last damaged by.

Adaptive shields need to be attacked first to gain a resistance, which only persists for a limited time or until the shield is depleted, making high spikes of damage especially detrimental as they may completely deny this ability. It can also only resist a single element at a time, which means encountering enemies with multiple element attacks can be dangerous, particularly if one of them is slag as it greatly increases the risk of shield depletion.

As rarity increases, adapted elemental resistance and bonus maximum health increase.
