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.
