Repulsor Shields and recharging shields in general are generally not used in most of combat as it takes a long 10 seconds to even begin recharging. However, its main use is in base sniping, tanks equipped with this shield can reduce alot of repair time by recharging it when they can.
Strategy and Setup
Projectile weapon are rarely seen in combat making the shield quite useless in that term. Its main use is in sniping bases, tanks equipped with the shield can reduce alot of repair time (Since only projectile turrets will fire at you, See Below for the technique used).
Like the other recharging shields it can recharge to full shield capacity if left alone for 10 seconds. Since bases usually non-stop fire at you it may seem impossible to recharge, but if you have tanky snipers you can send the decoys behind them to recharge and then back to tank.
Repulsor shields are poor choices for Fleet vs Fleet combat like the Deflector Shield. Projectile damage is simply not used in most meta fleets. Since it only has heavy resistance against that other damage types with destroy the shields energy.
Even worse, it has the lowest shield energy in the game at level III, it may have lower mass but it usually doesn't make too much of a difference in combat.
Unlike the other Recharge shields the Repulsor should rarely, if any time be used in combat. It protects a rare damage type used and has the lowest shield energy for a level III/V shield in the game. Put them on sniping fleets instead as it really benefits from all the projectile bullets.
Always equip level III, level II and I are simply too weak to do anything reliable as it will be depleted too fast to even be able recharge in most situations.
- Before squadrons got released the shield was still used, only to a certain extent though as the highest fleet bay there was was X and bases were very challenging.
- This is the first and only projectile recharging shield.
- Hulls equipped with this glow with a light blue like the Deflector Shield.
