Assault Shield is a shield-type weapon which causes the player to dash forward on use. By using this move, the player can cancel any enemy attack as well as reflect any bombs lying on the floor. In addition, it can be used on top of platforms to make enemies fall to their death.

Details[edit | edit source]

  • Block Damage Reduction: 75%
  • Special Effects:
    • On release of the shield's assigned button (cannot be pushed for more than certain amount of time, needs testing) , the player violently dashes forward shield-first.
    • Knocks back enemies on contact and dealing block damage (?). Dashing puts the shield on cooldown for 0.4 seconds.
  • Breach Bonus: -1
    • Base Breach Damage: 0 (0)
  • Tags: Shield
  • Legendary Version: Red Onslaught
    • Forced Affix: Bleed on Hit
      • "Bleeds the victim"

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Assault Shield is the only shield which has a breach bonus other than 0 -- namely, a breach bonus of -1. As a result, this shield is unable to stun enemies by damage alone.
  • Hitting the back of a Thorny with the dash from this shield will always result in a parry
  • The dash performed with this shield can be used while in the air and does not use up a jump, allowing the player to move significantly further in the air than without it.
  • Rolling immediately after Parrying grants a boost in momentum, allowing for faster run speeds.
    • When performing this tech, the player gains i-frames from the roll, while still putting out a hurtbox with the shield bash.
