Wraiths are the guardian enemies in Borderlands 3. They are first met during the Beneath the Meridian mission.


Wraiths are ranged type of Guardians met at the final section of Neon Arterial and later on Nekrotafeyo. As Guardians, they are an energy-based life form and their health acts like a regular shield and recharges when no damage has been taken after some time. On death, it may release a soul that will possess a nearby Guardian ally if not destroyed.



  • Wraiths are ranged enemies that use their staff as the primary weapon to fire bolts of energy. If a character gets into melee range, a wraith will use the staff as a blunt weapon.
  • Wraiths have the following attacks:
    • Beam Burst - fires a series of bolts.
    • Swing - slashes with its staff.
    • Jump Smash - jumps and smashes the ground on impact.
    • Spear Throw - hurls its spear that creates a small shock explosion on impact.
    • Disc Throw - hurls a bouncing energetic disc-like grenade.
    • Backflip - Used to get put some distance between it and the character.
  • Like all guardians, Wraiths are susceptible to shock damage.
