Would be similiar to the show then.
Your thinking of chroniton torpedoes, they bypass shields entirely, in Voyager, see the year of hell episode. Those weapons bypass shields.
Transphasics are anti-borg weapons, they pack the punch of a tricobalt and borg cant adapt to them like they do with most weapons. Not as easily anyway.
You should also note that Borg dont run around with the same shielding most races do, the initial shots from an enemy strike the ship, until they learn to adapt. See the first encounter with the Borg on TNG, in the episode Q Who, the phaser hits the Borg Cube and does a lot of damage, not striking a shield, until after they adapt. Same goes for ground weapons, they dont have any protection until they adapt.
