Deflector Fields are resistant to projectile based weapons and are the third module shields that beginners unlock. They mitigate 50% of damage from projectile weapons. They have the lowest amount of strength and weight in comparison with Shockwave and Spectral fields.
They are more suited against long range attacks, due to the common use of projectile weapons by destroyers, such as Mass drivers or Siege drivers, against bases due to their their high range, attacking outside the range of turrets. To assist surviving such attacks, Deflector fields are often deployed. They are also vulnerable to Energy and Explosive weapons, which will drain the shield rapidly. They do not scale well with high level fleets and quickly become obsolete, with many players choosing the more powerful and versatile Metaphase field.
Modules equipped with Deflectors shields glow a luminescent blue when under attack.
