The Biotic Shield is a Throwing gadget introduced in the 17.5.0 update. It requires the clan rank Golden Division to unlock.

Appearance

It is a mainly golden device with black outlines that has a blue wire, a red wire, and a black antenna with a red highlight. It also has a gem embedded on the side and a blue part in it.

Performance

When thrown, it creates a small sphere-shaped shield that can absorb any damage inflicted by enemies, protecting your self and allies. It has the area of effect and energy shield attributes, the shield lasts for a period of time and can be increased by upgrading.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this gadget while getting spawn killed or in narrow hallways.
  • This gadget is more useful for co-operative modes, because it can protect you and your teammates.
    • Although, you can alternatively use it for yourself in Deathmatch.
  • This gadget is most effective when used in Point Capture. In particular, on a point that can be captured.
  • This weapon is also useful if you are the defender in Flag Capture. Hide behind the shield and shoot the enemy players without taking damage yourself.
    • Using the area damage heavies can be useful when you do so.

Counters

  • Attack and damage the players behind the shields with area damage weapons.
  • Bypass the shield's width. If it is in a doorway, see if you can reach to the players alternatively.
  • Wait until the Biotic Shield stops, then attack the player(s). If the players have powerful weapons, hide from then, if you can.
  • Use the Disabler to prevent the opponent from activating this.
  • Use high damaging Primarys such as Ultimatum or area damage weapons with a large radius like Ice Club or Lance Soul Card as they have enough damage radius to pierce through the shield.
  • Normal weapons cannot bypass it however using any wall break weapon can bypass the shield, however the damage will be reduced
