Where to Find the Shield in Borderlands 3


The first mission in Borderlands 3 sort of acts as a tutorial. And during this mission, you will need to grab a shield as you will be facing your first ‘boss’, Shiv. 

Finding the shield might be quite difficult, even with Claptrap shouting trying to send you in the right direction. It’s quite high up, near the edge of the map. 

We’ve put some screenshots below showing the location of the shield. For more Borderlands 3 Guides & Best-of content for PS4, PC and Xbox One, make sure to check out our dedicated area here

Finding the Shield

The Shield can be found on top of the container ont he image below. It’s located in the Northern corner of the map, just check your minimap.

Shield Location

You’ll need to use Borderlands new climbing system to get up there, which means jumping, then jumping again to climb up a surface. Open the container, and you’ll find the shield inside.

Container which holds the shield

Still struggling? Look at Claptrap head on when he is stuck to the magnet. Now head left, the shield and container can be found near the wall, at the edge of the map.
