The Shooting Star is a legendary Maylay Shield manufactured by scavs. It is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source, but has an increased chance to drop from the Lost Legion Powersuit Noob during the mission Red, Then Dead.

Special Weapon Effects

Don't look up. – Extremely high roid damage. While depleted, each melee attack that connects with a target is accompanied by a 'shooting star', which inflicts additional explosive damage.

Usage & Description

The Shooting Star is a very powerful roid shield, surpassing many high-quality Maylay shields.


  • A hot fix issued starting from November 11 re-balanced both this shield and Bigg Thumppr, severely reducing the roid damage bonus of each shield. The Shooting Star's roid damage at level 50 after the hot fix is approximately 15,000; before the hot fix, it averages 100,000 roid damage.
