Faulty Star is a Shield of the Legendary or Orange rarity in Borderlands 3. It is a new Shield that came with the Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck DLC. And this shield is highly recommended for Moze players.

How to get the Faulty Star (Drop Location)

Let me start by saying that the Faulty Star is a world drop. But in order to get the Faulty Star easily, you can go and farm Evil Lilith on Castle Crimson in Krieg’s Mind. You obviously need to start the Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck DLC in order to get access to the mentioned locations. Here is the exact location of Evil Lilith:

Just spawn at Castle Crimson – The Walls and walk over to the location shown above. It is straight walk, so you shouldn’t have any problem finding the location.

Regarding the drop rate of the Faulty Star, the shield has a really low drop rate. I did a total of 30 runs of multiple DLC 4 bosses and I managed to get only two. And both of them was from Evil Lilith. I was farming at Mayhem 10 on Normal Mode.
