Unpaler is a unique shield in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Pangolin. It is obtained from the mission On the Blood Path located in The Anvil, by siding with Holder.

Special Effects

Kind of tickles. – Increased melee damage when depleted. Deals shock damage to attacker when wearer is struck by a melee attack.

Usage & Description

The Unpaler is focused on melee builds, as it has a low capacity and a rather low recharge delay. Users should take advantage of the strong melee damage buff by constantly keeping their shield down.

The shield synergises with melee-focused weapons such as the Ripper and Face-puncher, and melee-focused characters such as Amara.


  • The Unpaler always spawns with a Brawler prefix.
