Shield

From Codex Gamicus
Jump to: navigation, search

In gaming, a Shield, outside of the science-fiction term normally referred to as Shields, is a form of defensive armor, usually equipped in the Off Hand slot in games. Having a Shield equipped can often enable unique moves and gameplay mechanics not available otherwise. The Shield itself will often help mitigate damage taken by the player.
