— In-game description [?]


  • Unlike many sequence skills, the time window when this skill becomes available is quite short. Try to throw the shield at the foe immediately after activation of first skill in the sequence, Static Shield (double-press the weapon 5 key).
  • Travels a set distance when thrown. The projectile pierces all targets on its way out and again on its way back, possibly dazing them twice.
  • The thrown shield will not return if it hits an object (wall, slope, etc.) before traveling its full distance. In this case the shield will only hit once, as it travels away from the player.
