Gearbox introduced an exciting mechanic to their first-person shooters. That mechanic became a standard in their looter shooter games when the first Borderlands came out.

Borderlands and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands are games that often blind the players with particle effects that can cover your entire screen.

In order to keep players having fun, preventing them from feeling too frustrated from being shot down by enemies, these games allow players to keep fighting even when they are completely drained of their HP.

Because of that, this new idea worked out pretty well. It is perfect for a PvE game that often overwhelms players with enemies.

In Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, you must Save Your Soul when your HP is depleted. If you manage to do that, the game says “Death Save,” which hints that you succeeded on a saving throw.

This is Gearbox’s way of making a fun reference to Dungeons & Dragons. After all, you are playing Tina’s tabletop RPG. However, instead of D&D, you’re playing B&B — Bunkers & Badasses.

Either way, there are ways to make sure that you will always be able to save your soul and keep fighting. With our help, you will have enough tips and tricks to keep coming back from bosses that can easily one-shot you. 

So if you keep getting shot down by your enemies or a specific boss fight, don’t worry. We are going to help you learn how to save your soul in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.

This way, you will be ready to defeat the Dragon Lord and fight Bunnidghod, the Sand Keeper.

How to Save Your Soul

Death Save

Once you are out of health, a timer will start, and you will be able to shoot your enemies. Hopefully, you will be able to take at least one down while in that state.

If you manage to do it before the timer runs out, you recover part of your HP and can keep fighting. Be careful, though. Every time you’re shot down, the timer becomes shorter.

Having a way to endure all the madness on the screen and keep fighting feels incredible, so make sure to take advantage of this mechanic whenever you can.

This mechanic works well because although it might allow you to come back countless times, you still have to earn it. This way, players don’t feel too cheapened when defeated and feel awesome when they pull off a Death Save.

It is important to always keep a short-ranged enemy nearby just in case you forget to check who is coming from behind. This is a great way to explore this mechanic and ensure that you are always going to have someone to take down to save your soul.

Luckily, taking down enemies is not the only way to save your soul in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. The game offers another method that might be possible to do during a few boss fights.

When going through the main quest, players will have to learn how to defeat Zomboss to progress through the game, and this method is especially easy during this boss fight.

Barrel to Save

Sometimes, players might come across barrels that drop health potion when they explode. However, health potions won’t help you save your soul. On the other hand, the explosion itself will.

If there are no enemies for you to take down in this state, but one of these barrels is near you, hit it until it explores. Please note that you must be really close to the explosion for it to work. If you hit the barrel and it rolls away before exploding, you might find yourself in trouble.

Final Thoughts

There are many ways to keep yourself alive for longer in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.

For instance, the Spellshot has an ability that makes you regenerate Ward and HP when you cast a spell. Also, some weapons have a life-steel effect. There is even Dark Magic that slowly heals you while you deal damage.

Whatever you go for, remember that you might want to have a quick weapon for when you need to save your soul. Sometimes the reload time alone will be enough to end the counter before you can even shoot an enemy.

Because the battles can be overwhelming, you might want to think about your defenses as well.

Causing a lot of damage to enemies is fun and all, but it won’t be enough to survive all kinds of challenges that Tiny Tina might throw at you.

This is why the choice of a class is so important. You must choose the best class for your playstyle and make sure that it will work to take down enemies and keep you alive.
