I don’t understand the need to lock certain shields behind the Takedown mid-bosses. Maybe I’m missing something, but I never use those shields, they just don’t seem that great compared to the more easily obtained Transformer, Stop Gap, and Front Loader, or even the Red Suit or Old God.
I’d rather have the guns split between the mid and main bosses, and the shields dropped into the general pool. Or is there a shield that is worth the effort to farm from the takedowns (not that they don’t just seem to drop on every run anyway)?
For me, shields are the least exciting find. Once I have a good one, I rarely swap it out, unless I’m trying to match ASE elements. I’d rather have new artifacts or class mods, or anything other than a shield. Unless they complete the cycle of immunity shields. That would be interesting to me.
