Tankman's Shield is a legendary sniper rifle in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Hyperion. It can be obtained as a drop from Captain Traunt on Athenas, and the Valkyrie Squad and Wotan the Invincible on Mayhem Mode 4.

Special Weapon Effects

You ever seen this dude tank anything ever? – Every kill adds weapon damage to the next magazine. Low base damage.

Usage & Description

The Tankman's Shield requires one-shot kills to efficiently earn the bonus stacks. Skills in Moze's Bottomless Mags and FL4K's Fade Away are especially useful with the weapon. However, the extraordinarily low base damage means that even at the 200% bonus cap, other weapons easily outperform it.
