  • Creates a protective barrier that fully absorbs enemy fire.
  • Shots fired through the shield will deal 50% additional damage as Electricity b Electricity damage, and will also inflict 200% critical damage. These bonuses are not affected by Power Strength mods.
    • Firing through multiple shields will cause the damage bonuses to stack: additive for the electricity damage, and multiplicative for the critical damage. Check this blog post for more information.
  • Lasts 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds. This is affected by Power Duration mods, and the Pulse Volt Helmet.
  • Electric Shield affects certain weapons differently. For example, weapons like the Flux Rifle, Synapse, and Phage will become hitscan when their beams come in contact with the shield. This hitscan conversion also affects several other weapons.
  • Weapons with the disadvantage of hard range limits and/or damage falloff over distance will gain a very large range and/or lose the damage penalty when fired through the shield.
    • Warning: You can kill yourself while firing the Ignis, or especially the Embolist through the shield if you stand a certain distance into the shield. Since the Embolist requires short range to use, it can be very dangerous when used with the shield as you can kill yourself very quickly.
  • Give Conclave ratings of 10 / 10 / 30 / 50 for each respective rank.

  • Multiple instances of electric shield can provide a 360 degree wall of protection, or can be used once if backing up into a tight space, blocking enemy fire from all angles.
  • Take note that this kind of shield does not protect its users from above and below attacks.
    • However, as the shield is placed in the direction you are looking and centered at your crosshair, you can place shields above and below you to fix this.
  • Be careful of the Scorpion as her Grappling Hook can still catch you and drag you out of cover.

Maximization is a form of specialization: mods may be blended to result in values that vary between the top-end limits listed here. Click any maximized link to learn how to build it.
