Resist Shield

The Resist Shield does not prevent damage while active but instead mitigates it, as a result it is not adversely affected by damage received, making its sustained operational duration limited only by the size and efficiency of the power source. The Resist Shield does not stack with the bonus from Nanoweave or Flak armor. It provides 40% resistance to damage when active.

Hints & Tips Edit

It is important to note that 40% damage reduction is not 40% more health. It is equivalent to taking only 60% damage, which nearly doubles your effective health.

Use the following formula: Effective Health = Current Health / 0.60

Ex: If activating Resist Shield at full health: 1000 / 0.60 = 1667 effective health.

Ex: If activating Resist Shield after losing shields: 500 / 0.60 = 833 effective health.

This makes Resist Shield a stronger option than Nanite Mesh Generator or Adrenaline Shield if activated at the start of an engagement, but weaker if activated when already damaged.

Stats Edit

Duration 7(?) sec (15 sec Max Lv)
Recharge 17 sec

Level Cost Description
1 50 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 Generates a shield of nanites around the soldier that mitigates 40% damage instead of preventing it; as a result damage will not drain shield power quicker, allowing for longer sustained operation under fire.
2 100 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 Improves the efficiency of the Nanite emitters, increasing the maximum duration the shield can remain active to 10.5 seconds.
3 150 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 Improves the efficiency of the Nanite emitters, increasing the maximum duration the shield can remain active to 12 seconds.
4 200 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 Improves the efficiency of the Nanite emitters, increasing the maximum duration the shield can remain active to 13.5 seconds.
5 500 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 Improves the efficiency of the Nanite emitters, increasing the maximum duration the shield can remain active to 15 seconds.

Note: All ability levels reduce incoming damage by 40%, leveling up the ability increases it's duration.
