Examples are on the talk page.

Special Weapon Effects[]

Ammo is no longer an issue. – Ammo regeneration. High damage.

Usage & Description[]

Like all Tediore legendary weapons, the Protector does not have any particular abilities apart from its ammo regeneration. Unlike other Tediore Legendary weapons though, its stats are not noticeably weaker than other guns, making it a good weapon from a pure combat point of view.


The Protector effect comes from the body3_Tediore_Protector body. It is based on body3, but has much more damage. Tediore body3_Tediore_X are usually roughly equivalent to body5, itself equivalent to a high damage or 2xbody3. The Repeater Pistols' lack of a body5 though make the body3_Tediore_Protector an excellent part. For an explanation on how to interpret the information on the following table, please see the stat modifiers page.
