Against melee attackers, the Impaler operates as a standard corrosive-element [[Spike Shield]]. When struck by a bullet, however, the Impaler launches a homing spike, which will initially aim at the attacker. The spike has a low projectile velocity, a broad turning radius, and travels initially in a slight arc directly toward the target. If the target is too close, the spike may fail to track it, traveling fruitlessly in a broad circle until it exhausts its range. Hard cover in front of the target will also block the spike. If a closer target presents itself during the spike's arc, the spike may change course to track that alternate target instead.

Usage & Description

Against melee attackers, the Flyin' Maiden operates as a standard corrosive-element Spike Shield. When struck by a bullet, however, the Flyin' Maiden launches a homing spike, which will initially aim at the attacker. The spike has a low projectile velocity, a broad turning radius, and travels initially in a slight arc directly toward the target. If the target is too close, the spike may fail to track it, traveling fruitlessly in a broad circle until it exhausts its range. Hard cover in front of the target will also block the spike. If a closer target presents itself during the spike's arc, the spike may change course to track that alternate target instead.

Notes

  • Launched spikes (but not melee spikes) deal elemental splash damage, and are buffed by grenade damage bonuses.
  • A launched spike that detonates at close range can damage the wearer of the shield. This may happen when the shield is struck by a bullet while the wearer is engaging a melee opponent.
  • The Flyin' Maiden can spawn with a Maliwan capacitor, granting the "Alkaline" prefix and corrosive immunity to its wearer. It cannot spawn with resistance against any other element.
  • Currently because of a bug, this shield can not drop legitimately and is obtainable only using save editors.

Trivia

The Flyin' Maiden is a variant of the Impaler from Borderlands 2
