General

The Shockwave Shield is the basic Explosive-resisting ship shield.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Shockwave Shields are highly versatile because Explosive-type weapons vary greatly in range and are used in a variety of fights, including the popular Manifold Missile rush and Vector/NET battleships that kite almost everything. They also counter one of the best pre-Xeno Division base weapons - the SICO Missile Turret.

Disadvantages

If you want maximum shield energy on your ships, you should go for Spectral Shields instead. Only use this shield if you expect to be fired upon by mostly Explosive weapons.

Trivia

  • Ships that have active Shockwave Shields glow orange.
