I've picked up several from moonshot farming (it drops fairly frequently on moonshots). I've found it very effective, but I've found that nothing replaces the oomph of my Bee shield, though. It's a great shield to use for building up your Game of Thorns badass rank.

corrosive spike vs melee
homing corrosive spike vs ranged attacks

i think it comes in handy and its plenty more useful than a standard spike shield.
i just wish the legendary came in a variety of flavors

As plot kill moonshot has almost 100% drop rate on oranges, Impaler is the second easiest legendary shield to get.
This makes my correctly skilled Siren immortal:

Gaige can duplicate this to her Deathtrap, IMO much more fun, than immortality. Only corrosive, 'cause it's the worst element on spike shields, Maliwan does not want to take the fun out of it:

Bee is hyperion, you need to hide/run with it + only truly needed, when doing solo kills with roid bosses. Which really was not why they were put in Pandora 2. You kill warrior way too easily with any white gun, by using that buzzer. Well maybe I'm not fair. (There is no fair in hyperion teams). Cunning Zer0 can bring the fool down with no shooty things in his/it's hands. I personally couldn't get any sense of my woupens, when had that insect on.

The Impaler is a nice shield. It's not great, it's not a game changer, but it's nice.

Remember BL1, everybody used healing ones, and that was it. Why no quick change of shields, or relics, or class COMs....in BL2, and no loot they said.

As some one else stated, I find it useful against loader-heavy areas like heros pass and opportunity.

Impaler good shield only thing it misses is a good corrosive nova blast...I usually keep an impaler on each charecter and a hide of terra(inflammable). Try the impaler with maya and a corrosive relic and mod.

It's a great shield that I always carry:

Good capacity, RCR is ehh but the delay is silky if you've badass ranked it correctly. The shield is basically a familiar that spits 100% ACCURATE HOMING CORROSIVE SPIKES. That's insane. I wish they displayed the proc percentage rate but it has to be high. Impaler basically paints targets for you to shoot at while they're already taking damage.

But you know thet thing is just Oh'kay(sarcasm)
