The SH-32 Shield Generator Pack is a defensive backpack Stratagem able to protect the wearer from most damage. Despite the description, the shield is quite effective against Terminids' melee attacks, and does not have any kind of duration/lifetime/power restrictions.

Tactical Information

  • The shield provides 360º protection.
  • While the shield is active, the wearer is also immune to crowd control effect such as the spit from a Bile Titan, the knockback from rockets and puffball mushrooms, and the slowing effect of frost plants.
  • The shield backpack is able to provide cover for your buddy if you're operating a crew weapon like the Recoilless Rifle or Autocannon.
  • Some melee attacks from smaller Terminids will sometimes ignore the shield and hit the wearer directly, though it's hard to say why.
  • K-2 Throwing Knives have similarly been reported as able to bypass the SH-32's shield under certain circumstances.

Known Bugs

  • 1.000.300: The SG-8P Punisher Plasma cannot be used within the barrier of a Shield Generator Pack. The projectile will explode upon leaving the barrel when under the effects of this utility.
    • 1.000.302: Firing the Punisher Plasma while wearing a shield backpack no longer damages the Helldiver.
  • 1.000.304: "Hand Carts" Ship module does not reduce Shield Generator Pack's cooldown.
