General

The Deflector Field is the basic Projectile-resisting base shield.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Deflector Fields perform best against sniper fleets: most destroyers use Projectile-type weapons to achieve long range.

This shield is best used on long-range Combat Modules since they tend to be targeted first by snipers as the major threat.

Disadvantages

Deflector Fields lack shield energy compared to the Spectral Field and Shockwave Field, making them especially vulnerable to carrier rimming, a tactic that uses squadrons to take out modules from afar. They are also least effective against Alien Damage which cannot be resisted by the three basic fields.

Trivia

  • Modules with active Deflector Fields are encased in a blue dome, which occasionally pulses light-blue but is hardly noticeable.
