The Bee is one of the most popular shields in Borderlands 2 because of its beneficial amp (amplified) damage. The reason the amp damage is more beneficial, on this shield than others, is because the shield also has a 0 (zero) amp drain count. This means that every shot fired from a weapon, whilst The Bee is fully charged, does amp damage to the target.
This shield is used by many players for farming bosses such as Terramorphous the Invincible. Most players will use the shield along with the Conference Call shotgun. The two of them together make enemies such as Terramorphous a breeze to kill. Many players consider The Bee to be a game breaker, almost like a modded item to make the game too easy, however The Bee is a genuine item drop in the game.
After a patch in late 2012 the Bees amp damage was cut down from the original amount. Even with the patch the bee is still one of the best amp damage shields in the game.
