Neogenator is a legendary adaptive shield in Borderlands 2 manufactured by Anshin. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source, but has an increased chance to drop from Spycho located in Frostburn Canyon. It also has an increased chance to drop from Sully the Blacksmith in TK Baha's Bloody Harvest.

Special Shield Effects[]

For an impenetrable shield stand inside yourself. – Regenerates health and taking damage from enemies increases the regeneration rate. Increased max health bonus and elemental resistance. Reduced shield capacity.

Usage & Description[]

The Neogenator provides health regeneration while active, which increases when the shield has recently taken damage. The default health regen is 0.0005%, but when it has recently taken damage, the health regen increases to 3%. Health regen stops when the shield breaks. The amount of damage taken does not influence health regen, but damage taken must be from an enemy to trigger health regen.

The Neogenator is better suited for prolonged combat in which the wearer is often hit while recovering from damage. It has limited effectiveness at withstanding high intensity spikes in incoming damage.


  • Deathtrap does not benefit from the health regeneration effect when the Neogenator is equipped by a Mechromancer using Sharing is Caring.
  • A Neogenator with 86% elemental resistance will take 4.53 seconds to recharge naturally.
  • As with all adaptive shields, when initially equipped (and after reloading the game) the Neogenator has no elemental resistance until after taking elemental damage. The shield loses its resistance after depletion and must re-acquire resistance by taking damage again when it has recharged.
