The Strike Shield is a explosive resistant rechargeable shield designed for cutters only. It is available in the event Incursion. Being an explosive resistant shield, they take 50% less damage from explosive type weapons. They quite rare to be seen in use due to their specialized purpose dealing with explosive weapons.
The Strike shield is a very weight to energy efficient shield. Being both lighter and stronger than Shockwave shield V and having equal effective against Metaphase shield III against explosive weapons as well the ability to recharge. It should be noted that recharging shields only recharge when ships have not taken any damage for ten seconds. Their recharge can be halted if they are attacked. Their shields do not recharge if they have been depleted.
Players with excellent control of their cutters in battle could take advantage of the recharge effect these shields offer. But given how they resist only explosive weapons type, they are ineffective against common energy weapons. They will quickly deplete, making it difficult to take advantage of the recharging ability.
Unfortunately the shield is a cutter only shield. This makes its recharge ability very hard to perform as cutters always take damage in close quarters combat and usually will lose their shield against enemies before they can recharge.
- When it was shown in the event trailer it had a energy icon making some to believe it was a energy shield.
