Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Can be stacked with other teammates' to lower shield capacity by a maximum of 72%.
    • Shield reduction from this aura maxes out at 80%. This can be achieved by having all squad members equipping Mod TT 20px.png Coaction Drift alongside this aura.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This is most effective against the Corpus due to their heavy use of shields. It is somewhat effective against the Corrupted, albeit to a lesser extent due to that only some of the enemies using shields.
  • As only a select few bosses use shields, this mod has only a very minor effect against the Grineer.
    • Similarly, as Mutalist Alad V is the only Infested unit to use shields, this mod has no effect against the Infested in most situations.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, Shield Disruption showed a NovaIcon272.png Nova shooting bolts though a Shield Lancer's Riot Shield, which was more a depiction of punch through rather than shield reduction.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

Faction Aura Changes

We are rebalancing the faction Auras to not completely bypass our rebalancing effort. More importantly though, with the complete rescale these Auras (mostly Corrosive Projection) will not be as necessary as they were.

Corrosive Projection, Shield Disruption and Infested Impedance new Rank values are:

  • Unranked: -3%
  • Rank 1: -6%
  • Rank 2: -9%
  • Rank 3: -12%
  • Rank 4: -15%
  • Rank 5: -18%

Why: We think being consistent is key. Passively removing 100% of an enemy's defenses is not an interesting choice, and we were completely inconsistent in this regard with Auras (i.e the efficacy of 4x Corrosive Projections vs 4x Shield Disruptions).

Update 25.1 (2019-06-05)

  • Fixed enemies spawning being uneffected by Shield Disruption Aura worn by players in the Rift at the time.

Update 8.0 (2013-05-23)

  • Introduced as part of the Artifact Defense Event.
