Revision as of 20:21, February 1, 2013

The Bee is a Legendary Amplify Shield made by Hyperion in Borderlands 2. The Bee is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Hunter Hellquist located in Arid Nexus - Boneyard.

Special Weapon Effects

Float like a butterfly... – Large amount of Amp shot damage, 0 Amp Shot Drain. Lowered shield capacity. Increased Shield Recharge Rate. Increased Recharge Delay.

Usage & Description

The Bee, while having low shield capacity and a long recharge delay, gives extraordinary Amp damage with zero shield drain per shot. This effectively provides endless Amp damage until the user takes damage from an outside source. Due to having no Amp Drain, The Bee can best be used with a weapon that has a high rate of fire.

The Bee may also spawn with the Grounded, Inflammable, Alkaline, or Blast Proof prefixes, giving the wearer immunity to electrocution, burning, or corrosion DoTs, or half protection from explosions, respectively.

Notes

  • The Bee also affects vehicle guns and MG damage, but not saw blades, rockets, or explosive barrel.
  • The Bee was rebalanced by Patch 1.2.0. The patch decreased the amount of Amp Damage (by about 10k for a level 50 example), increased Recharge Delay (by 2 more seconds), and reduced Recharge Rate (by 7k). Most significantly, Amp Shields have their Amp damage amount divided among the projectiles from multi-projectile weapons (all weapons with a yellow multiplier in the Damage stat), thus making all Amp shields, including the Bee, less effective on shotguns and other multi-projectile weapons, rather than more so.
  • The Bee also no longer adds amp damage to Tediore reloads such as the Baby Maker's or the Gunerang's.
  • It is currently unknown if "Significantly increased Recharge Rate" from the Patch 1.2.0 notes (retrieved 2012-11-16) is actually a typographical error since item cards in-game show the recharge rate significantly decreased instead.

Trivia

  • The weapon's flavor text is a reference to Muhammad Ali, who described his fighting style as "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."
