  • 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 ReputationBlackx64.png 25,000 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.
