The end comes from within. – Deal 20% increased elemental damage for the element it is resistant against. 25% damage reduction against all elements. Can spawn with 3 shield augments.
Usage & Description
The Old God is most often used in glass cannon builds to increase their damage even farther, forgoing shields with more survivability. Conversely, it is also often used in builds with high survivability to have increased damage.
Because of how damage is calculated in Borderlands 3, the 20% increased elemental is actually much more impactful than it first appears. This is because the more of a specific type of damage boost the character has, the less effective it becomes. For example, a character with just a 30% gun damage boost and a 30% elemental damage boost will deal more damage than a character with just a 60% gun damage boost or just a 60% elemental damage boost.
Because FL4K has no other elemental damage boosts besides Spiderant Scorcher, the Old God provides a larger boost in damage per second to FL4K than other characters.
The Old God can either spawn with 2 or 3 shield augments. For example, an Old God can spawn with absorb, projected, and health. The Madcap and Gas Mask are the only other legendary shield in the game that can spawn with three augments.
