Gameplay Tips[edit | edit source]
- Equipping the Shield makes players immune to many of the various status effects present in the game as long as the shield is up. The full list includes:
- The Static Field Conductors Stratagem; bear in mind, though, that a depleted SH-20 will not regenerate while the player is inside a static field!
- Slowing attacks, such as the Bug Stalker's poison and the Illuminate Apprentice's slowing orbs.
- The infamous "control-reversing" orbs fired by the Illuminate Council Member and Illusionist, together with the Obsidian Observer's confusion pulse.
- Being dragged to the ground by Cyborg Hounds. The shield also prevents Hounds from charging at a shielded player.
- Being set on fire by flame-based attacks and volcanic eruptions.
- The poison effects of the TOX-13 Avenger and the M-25 Rumbler.
- The stunning effect of detonated Stun Grenades and Airdropped Stun Mines.
- The SH-20 greatly increases the player's hitbox with the trade-off a protection.
- An active SH-20 can save the player from Airdropped Anti-Personnel Mines and Preset Land Mine Fields. The explosion will disable the Shield for a long period of time, though.
