World Drop

Base Game - World Drop

Borderlands 3 World Drops are items that drop from any suitable Loot Source in addition to their dedicated sources.
There are around 150 unique items in the Base Game - World Drop pool, so for farming a specific shield it's best to seek out its dedicated Loot Source.
If you still want to test your luck, you should equip a Shlooter Artifact to increase your chance of a World Drop by 1000%.

Shield - suitable Loot Sources:

  • All Enemies:
    Bosses, Crew Challenges, Generic Enemies, …
  • All kinds of Chests
  • Vending Machines
  • Slot Machines: Tink's Hijinx or Vault Line
  • Diamond Loot Room
