Borderlands Wiki

Pot O' Gold is a unique booster shield in Borderlands 2 manufactured by Bandit. It can be obtained as a rare drop from Peter Zaford located in The Holy Spirits.

Special Item Effects[]

Blarney I say! 'Tis blarney! – When damaged, has a small chance to drop money.

Usage & Description[]

The Pot O' Gold drops money bundles of a $1 value each when hit. The money is then picked up instantly, which can be useful for Vault Hunters with high ammunition consumption, but the Pot O' Gold's utility in combat is generally inferior to other rare shields of the same level.

Drop Guide[]

The Pot O' Gold has a chance to drop from Peter Zaford, the Zafords' "bagman". It can only be obtained during the mission Clan War: End of the Rainbow, as the bagman does not respawn after the mission is completed. However, if the player saves and quits after killing the bagman but before completing the mission (by inserting the key into the exit), the mission is failed and can be retaken, allowing the bagman to be farmed.


  • In higher-level playthroughs, the amount of money dropped is insignificant.
  • The money dropped by the booster effect does not count toward the Dolla Dolla Bills Y'all challenge.
  • While the Pot O' Gold is coded to function as a blue-rarity booster shield, it uses the model and skin of a purple-rarity maylay shield.
