Aegis Shield

The Aegis Shield is a New Conglomerate specific MAX ability that creates a shield on the player's right arm to absorb any incoming fire. It only blocks rounds that hit the shield directly, so it's still possible to harm the MAX by shooting it anywhere that is not shielded (eg: the sides, the back, the toes, etc...). The shield 's charge will slowly deplete when it has been shot at and will have to recharge when it becomes completely depleted. If some of the shield's charge is lost it will only replenish when the shield is not active.

Currently, pulling shield up doesn't interrupt reloading.

Sticky and Anti-Vehicle grenades will not stick to a MAX unit that has their Aegis shield active.

As of 2017, the Aegis Shield, along with Max's in general, have been somewhat nerfed indirectly due to more plentiful explosives, especially C4. While it will still take a few rockets to kill a max, a stick of C4 (or a tank mine) can instantly kill a max with or without the Shield (the shield no longer seems to absorb blast from C4 and tank mines). Take care when in close proximity to enemy infantry (Difficult with an NC Max due to your armament), especially Light Assaults with C4, as C4 can be thrown farther and faster than in earlier patches.
