The Shielder fires massive barrages of 8 shots in a small spread. Unlike every other ranged enemy, all I.D.P.D. troops (including the Shielder) can shoot your character from point blank.
The Shielder is very tough and will shield to block your attacks and reflect projectiles. This shield works similar to Crystal's shield ability, but has a short delay in its startup animation.
Attacks deflected by the shield:
- All types of Bullet Weapon and Shell Weapon projectiles (except Frog Pistol bullets),
- Grenades and Mini Grenades,
- Blood Launcher grenades,
- Lightning Cannon, Flame Cannon, and Plasma Cannon projectiles,
- Projectiles fired by Rebel's allies,
- Plant's seed,
- Thrown weapons from Chicken or the Gun Gun.
Attacks negated by the shield:
- Small Plasma projectiles (no impact damage but the projectiles explode),
- Bolt Weapons: bolts, splinters and seekers,
- Fire Weapons,
- Missiles (no impact damage but the missiles explode),
- Blood Cannon projectiles (no impact damage but the projectiles explode),
- Hyper Launcher's grenade (no impact damage but the grenades explode),
- Horror's rad beam,
- The shield is solid and blocks damage from the Gamma Guts and Sharp Teeth mutations,
- Green bullets like those of the Frog Pistol.
Attacks that bypass the shield:
- All explosions, including Blood Explosions and Plasma Explosions,
- Lasers and Lightning,
- Melee Weapons swing projectile.
