Special Weapon Effects

I can do this all day... – Ammo regeneration.

Usage & Description

The Defender's only special ability is ammo regeneration. The Defender should mostly be used for its ammo regenerating trait, rather than its combat prowess.


  • The Defender may also be found with a Carnage type barrel, allowing it to fire rocket projectiles instead of the normal pellets.
  • There are no Matador variations of the Defender.



The Defender effect comes from the body3_Tediore_Defender body. It is vastly superior to its body3 counterpart, but roughly equivalent to a body5. For an explanation on how to interpret the information on the following table, please see the stat modifiers page.
