For the legendary shield in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, see Whisky Tango Foxtrot.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a legendary shield manufactured by Anshin in Borderlands 3. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source but has an increased chance to drop from Crushjaw located in Cathedral of the Twin Gods on Pandora.

Special Effects

Situation normal. – When damaged, has a 25% chance to throw 3 IEDs in a spread in front of the wearer; one directly ahead and two at 45 degree angles to the left and right. These IEDs act as sticky bombs that explode on enemy contact or after a set time.

Usage & Description

The Whiskey Tango Foxtrot has been made less risky to use than its previous incarnation, as the IED bombs are no longer shield boosters that can easily harm the user. It can be used as a offense-oriented shield for close range combat, as the IEDs are sent towards enemies.


  • The IED explosions have the same element as the shield.
