Ward is a legendary shield in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Hyperion.
It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from The Graveward located in The Floating Tomb on Eden-6.

Special Weapon Effects

Free me master, see me shiver. – Bonus melee damage and +25% weapon damage when depleted. +2% max health per second when the shield is active; this effect doubles when the shield is depleted.

Usage & Description


  • For a few weeks after the release of Borderlands 3, Ward was guaranteed to drop with the Brawler prefix due to always having parts that gave it a double roid bonus. As a result, it always offered +300% melee damage while shields were depleted. This appears to have been changed without being noted in the hotfix on September 27, 2019.


  • The flavor text is a reference to the song "Aquarium" by Haken.
