  • Mod TT 20px.png Redirection, Mod TT 20px.png Primed Vigor, and Mod TT 20px.png Augur Accord can help drastically improve a Beast's maximum shields, as this mod uses the player's maximum shields as the base.
    • With Link Shields on a Huras Kubrow, a maximum shield value of 6,265.5 can be achieved using the above shield mods with a HildrynIcon272.png Hildryn.
  • Link Shields will allow most direct forms of shield recovery to apply to the pet, including Harrow's Condemn, Hildryn's Pillage, the Rakta Dark Dagger's passive, and Volt's Capacitance augment and Protea's Shield Satellites.
    • Link Shields can create overshields, but only when the companion's Warframe gets overshields. This is most noticeable with HarrowIcon272.png Harrow and his Condemn130xDark.png Condemn or Protea with her Shield Satellites.
    • Link Shields does not share passive shield regeneration effects such as Arcane Aegis.
    • Link Shields does not apply shield generation or overshields from Augur mods or Brief Respite.
  • Link Shields can be equipped on Kubrows, Kavats, MOAs, and Hounds, but not on Sentinels.
  • Link Shields is mutually exclusive with Mod TT 20px.png Calculated Redirection, meaning if Link Shields is equipped Calculated Redirection cannot be equipped.
    • Due to their relative bonuses, the player's Warframe must have at least 250% as much shield HP as the companion's base shield HP (at level 0) in order for Link Shields to provide more companion shield HP than Calculated Redirection.
      • For example, a Huras Kubrow has a base shield HP of 125 at level 0. If the player's Warframe has 300 shield HP, Link Shields would provide 330 shield HP to the Kubrow, while Mod TT 20px.png Calculated Redirection would provide 344 shield HP to the Kubrow.
