The Portable Shield Generator is an Internal-sized component.

Portable Shield Generators are internal components which grant a 20 HP shield to the equipping unit, recharging at a rate of 5 HP per second when sufficiently powered. Any damage dealt to the unit will be applied to shields before hull. Multiple shield components can be used on a single unit to increase durability.

  • Portable Shield Generators do not make units invincible! They add very little HP and are instead best utilized with kiting tactics to allow the shield to regenerate.
  • Try putting this component into a Re-simulator...
  • Shields can't charge from batteries (including crystal power). This is caused by shields being implemented as batteries and is considered a bug.
