In a rough place like Pandora, you are going to need protection and Shields protect you in Borderlands. Shields have the regeneration capacity so if you are being shot from all directions, you can get to cover and take a breather.
How fast your shield regenerates will depend on the type of shield being used. Some shields also provide protection against the elemental damage as an additional functionality. All manufacturers except for Jakob’s cranks are there to provide these protective barriers in the game.

It can damage the opponents nearby through explosion.
The shield will be depleted in the form of an explosion when it’s not full.

The shield will cause an elemental blast when it is depleted.
