The Dropzone Update launches in August, including new gear and the new Dropzone map. Get ready to armor up with the Barricade Mk.2 shield!
This shield is closer to a riot shield than the Mark 1, with most of the shield being transparent plexiglass, instead of having to squint through a slit to see. Since it’s a lighter shield, you can bash with it more for less damage but with a short stun. It’s light enough to move quickly with, but it cannot be deployed as a barricade.
As with the Mark 1, it’s a piece of tactical gear – meaning it goes in the first Gear slot, and can’t be used at the same time as Revival Injectors, cloaks, and other backpack items.
The hypercorps know that you want to personalize your gear, so they’ve added a tag of your Emblem to the shield. Get ready to bolster your defenses, because all of this is coming out in August!
