The Shield can be used to protect yourself and objectives.
- Blocks projectiles and direct line of sight attacks while held
- Can be deployed to protect a larger area
- As the held shield takes damage, it will turn red -- if it takes too much damage in a short amount of time, it will be temporarily disabled and then reappear after a duration
- While deployed shots cannot penetrate inside of the shield sphere it but shots from inside the shield sphere can go outward.
- The sphere has a limited duration: even left undisturbed, it loses health at a rate of 250/s. It will last 18s if it takes no damage.
Hold LMB to hold the shield in the direction you are facing
RMB to deploy -- while deployed, you can switch weapons and the shield will remain deployed
- While deployed, the shield sphere will display a progressive visual indicator as to when it will disappear and announce when it can be redeployed
