General

The Metaphase Shield is an advanced ship shield that resists all three traditional weapon types - Energy, Explosive, Projectile, taking half damage from them.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Metaphase Shields provide lots of protection - second only to the Spectral Shield. They resist many of the damage types used in combat, and are therefore the best shield to use in most situations.

They also give much lower XP than the Spectral Shield and other basic shields, protecting you from high-level fleets.

Disadvantages

Metaphase Shields have poor mass efficiency compared to the basic shields, but this is usually made up by their superior resistance stats.

They are relatively weak against Alien Event Targets which regularly use Alien and Plasma Damage. This also goes for Xeno Division Hulls and above which can use Alien-damage weapons.

Trivia

  • Ships that have active Metaphase Shields glow red-orange, and are difficult to distinguish from those with Shockwave Shields.
  • This is the first shield slot event prize in VEGA Conflict.
  • Originally, the Metaphase Shield only had 80% defense.
