Borderlands 3 – How to get Brawler Ward

Ward – Shield Description

The Ward is a Shield of the Legendary or Orange rarity in Borderlands 3. When you look at the Ward for the first time, you won’t notice anything other than some basic stats. The shield is pretty average and most of the players won’t use it in place of something like the Transformer.

So is there anything special about this shield at all? Actually yes. In order to unlock the true potential of the Ward you need to obtain the correct version or prefix which is the Brawler Ward. Most of you might have got the Raid Ward which is very average and the melee damage boost it grants upon shield depletion is probably around 80%. But the Brawler Ward can offer up to +300% melee damage when shields are depleted. So if you use this with Amara running a melee build then you can do some insane damage. And if have you have the Face-Puncher shotgun then you can use it with any character.

Lets take a look at the description of the Brawler Ward (Level 50). Sadly the one I got comes with +180% melee damage boost.

  • Capacity : 10509 (Depends on the shield level)
  • Recharge Delay : 6.7
  • Recharge Rate : 1285
  • Ward
  • Roid
  • Roid
  • Red text : Free me master, see me shiver.
  • +180% Melee Damage while shield depleted

Where to find the Brawler Ward

I would recommend farming for the Brawler Ward from Graveward. But let me tell you, this shield has a very low drop rate. Even in TVHM and Mayhem 3 difficulty I managed to get only 3 Wards after doing like 70+ runs. Among those 3, 2 were Raid Wards and only one was a Brawler Ward. I would recommend increasing your Luck % or do the farm with people in your squad. Otherwise you are going to have a tough time. Here is a video showing the Brawler Ward dropping from Graveward:

I always try to show videos of me getting these rare drops because I don’t like suggesting locations for farming without testing them out myself. If this guide has helped you then let me know in comments. Happy farming!


That’s all folks!
