Hyperion gun shields need a display

Playing Borderlands 3 and using a Hyperion gun, it just occurred to me that I have no way to tell how low my gun’s shield is, or when it’s recharged, or anything. I was using an SMG with a little display attached to the side, that showed how many bullets left in my mag (something useful, but already shown on my HUD) and I can’t see any kind of shield display.
I like that the gun usually tells you how many shield “points” it has and what the shield does (reflect/absorb/amp), but I’d like some way to tell during combat when my gun’s shield is about to break, so I can take cover, like I do with my body shield.
Hyperion aren’t my favourite, but I do like the gun shield gimmick, but this simple-sounding addition would make them so much more useful.

Good idea! Even if it didn’t have a number, it could have a color to the shield (green, yellow, red) or a separate bar that drops down to zero.
