Sunshine is a unique nova shield in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel manufactured by Dahl. Sunshine is obtained from the mission To the Moon located in Lunar Launching Station.

Special Effect

Every time I shut my eyes... – When depleted, fires incendiary laser projectiles in every direction. Provides immunity to incendiary DOT.

Usage & Description

Sunshine is effective against melee attackers, particularly unshielded ones, and has much better stats than common nova shields of the same level. Due to it firing lasers instead of a nova, it also gives the Sunshine more effective range than a standard nova shield, allowing it to potentially chip distant enemies. However, the lack of a nova also limits the Sunshine's effectiveness, as the lasers fire from the user's feet instead of forming a body-encompassing explosion around them.

Jack can make use of the Sunshine via You Have My Shield and skills focused on decreasing his Digi-Jack's longevity, turning them into walking laser bombs during combat.


  • Kills by the Sunshine's special effect do not advance the Nova Say Die ("Kill enemies with a Nova shield burst") challenge.


  • The flavour text references a line of dialog by Cassie from the 2007 sci-fi movie Sunshine: "Good dream? Let me guess... the surface of the Sun? Only dream I ever have. Every time I shut my eyes it's always the same."
  • It is the only nova shield to be manufactured by Dahl. They usually make booster shields instead.
