Gameplay Tips

  • 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 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.
  • The SH-20 will sometimes fail to protect from "confusion blasts" emitted by enemies like Obsidian Observers if the recipient of the blast is on the edge of the confusion blast radius. Keep this in mind when running away from patrols and attempting to deal with them at range.
