Madcap is a legendary shield manufactured by Anshin.
It is exclusive to the Designer's Cut DLC and is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Special Shield Effects

Sometimes there is no next time. – Increased shield capacity. Reduces Fight For Your Life time by 50%. Always spawns with 3 shield augments.

Usage & Description

This shield is great for builds that utilize the U-Rad anointment and the Deathless relic as the character only has to use skills that boost shield capacity and shield recharge rate.

While the shorter Fight for Your Life sounds harsh, using the Too Angry to Die Guardian Rank practically nullifies the reduced Fight for Your Life time, and thus the downside is rather small when using that reward.



  • The red text is from a quote by Alan Bennett with the full quote being "Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs. no second chances. Sometimes it's now or never".
  • The Madcap always spawns with three shield augments. For example, a Madcap can spawn with absorb, projected, and health. The Old God and Gas Mask are the only other legendary shields in the game that can spawn with three augments, although the Madcap is the only legendary shield in the game that always spawns with 3 augments.
