Plus Ultra - About

The Legendary Shield Plus Ultra is manufactured by Pangolin and comes from the Borderlands 3 Psycho Krieg - DLC.

Plus Ultra - Effects

While the Plus Ultra is active, it has a 25% Projectile Absorb Chance.

When it absorbs a projectile it grants you +30% Cooldown Rate for 4s.
Absorbing a projectile while this buff is still active resets the timer.

Additionally, the Plus Ultra has a hidden effect that doubles your Max-Health.

Bug Note:
The Plus Ultra's Cooldown Rate doesn't work for Fl4k's Gravity Snare and Zane's MNTIS Shoulder Cannon.

Plus Ultra - Variants

66.66% of Plus Ultras are Non-Elemental and each Element is equally common with 6.66%.

World Drop (BL3 - DLC 4)

DLC 4 - World Drop

DLC 4 - World Drop

Psycho Krieg - World Drops are items that drop from any suitable Loot Source, within the Psycho Krieg DLC, in addition to their dedicated sources.
There are 10 weapons, 4 Shields and 4 Class Mods in the Psycho Krieg - World Drop pool, so for farming a specific shield it's best to seek out its dedicated Source.
If you still want to test your luck, you should equip a Shlooter Artifact or All-in Shield to increase your Legendary World Drop Chances.

Suitable Loot Sources within the DLC:

  • All Enemies:
    Bosses, Crew Challenges, Generic Enemies, …
  • All kinds of Chests
  • Diamond Loot Room

There are 5 Epic Weapons and 2 Epic Shields have no dedicated source!
The best Sources to farm them are:

Drop Rates

  • Dr. Benedict
    10%
The number next to the Source notes Loot Luck.
