Elder Opha are large Guardian enemies encountered in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They appear as black colored Opha with grey armor attachments.


Elder Opha first appear at Eleseer during the mission Beginning of the End and spawn in southern sector and near the Vault's entrance.

Elder Opha later appear in The Holodome Onslaught DLC during Digistructed Madness: The Badass Round.



Elder Opha is slow-moving, but heavy-hitting opponent able to aid their fellow Guardian allies. It can deploy a single Putti, which in turn fly to their target to attack in a series of strafing runs and can recharge the shields of any damaged Guardians in their vicinity. Opha always ensures that they have at least one Putti active at any given time.

When at a distance, Elder Opha can release Putti bombs, which can either be launched directly at/around or home in on Vault Hunters and cause moderate damage on impact. Opha are also capable of pulling out an energy orb from their stomachs which cause heavy damage. When in melee range, Opha tend to release a small nova blast, damaging and pushing Vault Hunters away.

Corrosive damage is most effective for damaging Elder Opha's health, while shock is most appropriate for depleting their shields.
