Transistor Shield is a Warframe Augment Mod for Volt's Electric Shield that allows allies to pick up and move Electric Shields. Additionally, a percentage of enemy damage absorbed by the Electric Shield(s) will add up to Volt's Static Discharge passive.


Rank Damage Absorbed Cost
0 25% 6
1 50% 7
2 75% 8
3 100% 9


  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of Maxim under the Arbiters of Hexis, or the rank of Exalted under the Red Veil, and spending ReputationBlackx6425,000 to purchase.


  • Damage absorbed is directly affected by Ability Strength.
    • Any damage absorbed by will contribute to the casting Volt's Static Discharge Passive, but it cannot exceed the 1000 damage cap on the Passive itself.
  • Allies can press the Use key to pick up Electric Shields deployed by Volt; allies will use their own energy pool to maintain the shield around themselves, and the shield will use the default energy drain of Electric Shield (1 energy for every 4 meters traveled).
    • Currently, the energy drain does not take into account any Ability Efficiency-altering mods installed either on the ally who picks up the shield or the Volt who cast it. It is currently unknown if this behavior is intentional.


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 in the collapsible menu to learn how to build it.
