Golden Touch is a unique shield in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Pangolin. The Golden touch can be obtained by completing the mission Golden Calves located in The Droughts on Pandora.

Special Effects

I wanna know where the gold at. – Always spawns with the Brimming, Fleet and Roid effects.

Usage & Description

The Golden Touch has no special effect that distinguishes it from a comparable shield. However, as it can be obtained early in the game and is guaranteed to spawn with 3 effects and unique rarity stats it can be a viable option if no suitable shields have been found yet.

  • The Golden Touch is one of the few unique items to not have a special effect.
