— In-game description [?]


  • The engineer may Throw Shield at any point of the channel of Static Shield.
  • Not throwing the shield may inflict more crowd control, since the stun effect of Static Shield does not have an internal cooldown, allowing it to obliterate defiance bars if timed correctly by blocking attacks that hit multiple times.
  • 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.
  • Unlikely similar skills, the thrown shield gets destroyed if it hits terrain, failing to hit targets again.
