Preparation is a tier 1 skill in Axton's Survival skill tree. It increases shield capacity and grants health regeneration when your shield is full.


  • Shield Capacity: +3% per level
  • Regeneration: +0.4% per level
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Capacity +3%+6%+9%+12%+15%
Regen +0.4%+0.8%+1.2%+1.6%+2.0%
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Capacity +18%+21%+24%+27%+30%+33%
Regen +2.4%+2.8%+3.2%+3.6%+4%+4.4%

Can only be leveled past 5 with Tactician and Legendary Soldier class mods.


  • Tediore Shields are ideal with this skill since they have higher than normal recharge rate and lower recharge delay.
  • Shields with long recharge delays are poor choices to use with this skill, although Willing can help reduce this problem.
  • With 5 points in Preparation, boosted by class mods, it will take less than 50 seconds to regenerate all lost health.
