  • Breach Bonus: -1
    • Base Breach Damage: 0 (0)

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
  • Rolling immediately after Parrying grants a boost in momentum, allowing for faster run speeds
