Video: Shield - June 3, 2015
Daily posting, this video originally uploaded on November 6, 2014, showing the Shield weapon type.
Shields are defensive melee weapons that do 0.75x damage, but frontal attacks to the Shield user not only reduce damage by 25%, but makes them the target if they are in the enemy's line of sight of any targeted allies. Shield abilities generally increase weapon damage, frontal damage reduction and move, but there are also abilities for damage, heavy stun and nullifying damage.
An ability not shown in the video, but learnable by the custom main character, the Freerange character, Alex and Melissa is Paladin Smite, which adds Stun, Debuff and Illusion to Shield attacks against Symbiote Monsters, giving Shields the ability to disable some of the more powerful foes to protect allies.
Though Shields are generally not something used for offense, Melissa in particular has high damage output and a solid ability set with them.
