About[edit | edit source]

The Shield Generator is a portable, throwable utility tool exclusive to the Gunner. Once the Shield Generator comes into contact with a surface, it will project an indestructible dome shaped field that will buff any teammate within its radius. Once the protection field expires it'll return to its owner and initiate a cooldown before it can be used again. The Gunner is supplied with four Shield Generators, which can be restocked at a Resupply Pod.

Enemies such as Glyphids cannot enter the field, and the shield will absorb ranged attacks from creatures such as Mactera. Whilst in the shield, Team mates receive a 50% Damage reduction buff, regenerate 10 units of Shield per second, and can return fire at any enemies outside.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Shield Generator replaced the Satchel Charge as the Gunners utility tool when Update 19: Guns! Lots of Guns! was released.
  • The shield blocks range attacks from dwarf weapons but if a piercing mod is equipped, it will go through.
