  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of Maxim under the Arbiters of Hexis, or the rank of Exalted under the Red Veil, and spending ReputationLargeBlack25,000 to purchase.


  • Damage absorbed is directly affected by Ability Strength.
    • Any damage absorbed by Electric Shield will contribute to Volt's Static Discharge passive, but it cannot exceed the 1000 damage cap on the passive itself.
  • Allies can press the Use key to pick up Electric Shields deployed by Volt at no additional energy cost to them.
    • Electric Shields picked up by Volt's allies will still decrease movement speed.


  • Only one member of the squad can hold an Electric Shield at the same time. If someone tries to pick up a shield while someone else is already holding one, the one being held will be dropped regardless of the holder's input.
