While Borderlands 3’s new DLC has built up hype for new legendary weapons, it’s time to take a step back and look at another important facet of of your arsenal: your shield. This guide will help you with how to get the Rico Legendary Shield in Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot along with stats and perks.
How to Get the Rico Legendary Shield in Moxxi’s Heist
The Rico shield is unique when it comes to the DLC, as it isn’t dropped from a boss or enemy, the Rico is obtained simply by finishing the DLC’s main questline, or specifically finishing the main quest All Bets Off. So, while the rest of the legendary games added to the loot pool might require a little farming, to obtain this shield, you need only enjoy the DLC for it to then be placed into your hands.
Stats and Perks
As you can see, the Rico (apparently short for ricochet) shield is free from being a guessing game about its special ability. While the capacity isn’t the best, considering when it’s shielded that half of all shots bounce off you rather than do damage, more than makes up for it. In addition to that, a shield that not only keeps its effect after breaking, but almost doubles it is a massive helping hand.
As you can see, the shield we obtained is also a little bit on the bland side as far as extra modifiers go, but there’s always the chance that the one you receive will be tougher when it comes to added effects.
Time needed: 1 hour.
To summarize How to Get the Rico Legendary Shield in Moxxi’s Heist
- Finish the DLC’s main questline
- The shield is awarded automatically upon completing the quest All Bets Off.
And that’s all you need to know about how to get the Rico Legendary Shield in Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot.
