For the seraph shield in Borderlands 2, see Big Boom Blaster (Borderlands 2).

Big Boom Blaster is a legendary shield in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Pangolin. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from The Unstoppable located in Ambermire on Eden-6.

Special Effects

For all your big boom blasting needs! – Has a chance to drop a booster that restores shields, a grenade, and ammo.

Usage & Description

This shield drops boosters that will restore 60% of the character's shield immediately, gives 1 grenade, and 1 heavy ammo all at once. The shield is useful for restoring shields and prolonged battles where grenades or heavy weapons are used frequently.


  • The Big Boom Blaster pairs well with the Tran-fusion grenade mod as it allows for an effectively infinite source of healing.
  • The Big Boom Blaster, when paired with a Money grenade, can allow for exceptionally fast accumulation of currency, especially if the grenade also has a homing mod.
  • The Big Boom Blaster cannot drop a booster more than once every 2 seconds. Despite this, it is still an excellent shield for survivability.


  • The Big Boom Blaster is a returning shield from Borderlands 2 but as a legendary Pangolin shield instead of a seraph Torgue shield.
