The Metaphase Field is a base shield that provides equivalent protection to energy, explosive, and projectile damage dealing types of weapons, obtainable via blueprints from VEGA Fleets. This means that the fields will take the same amount of damage from energy weapons as they would from explosive and projectile weapons. In the past, Metaphase only resisted 80% of incoming damage, but this has since been raised to the full 90%.
Strategy and Setup
Metaphase Shields have very high shield energy. At level III, the shield amount surpasses that of a level V Shockwave field, and just below a level V Spectral Field. They are the most ideal shields to equip on Combat modules in any scenario.
Unlike other base shields they resist all damage types meaning unlike a Spectral Field which will suffer more from explosive and projectile weapons the Metaphase will never resist a less % if attacked by different weapon types (Alien Not Included).
High armor like Capacitive Plates III is much more important than shielding in bases. Its added weight will usually not allow high armor which is VERY important in base attacks.
It also does not resist Alien Damage which means it won't help against the powerful Xeno Cluster Missile in a base assault.
