OverviewEdit

Shields are used to defend a ship from hostile fire and impact with objects. If a shield is knocked out, given enough time, it will regenerate; however, in combat, shield batteries can be used by a player to restore a shield at once.

A shield is defined by the following statistics:

  • its Class, which is a broad measure of the power of a shield
  • its Capacity, or how much damage it can soak before failing
  • its Regeneration Rate, defined in terms of capacity restored per second

Shields are further defined by their type, as shown below.

Shield TypesEdit

Shields in Freelancer come in three types:

Different types of weapons affect different kinds of shields to a greater or lesser degree, depending on the type of the weapon, and the type of the shield. One strategy to take advantage of this fact is to purchase the best shields possible of all three types: while one can only mount one type of shield at a time, one can switch shields at a friendly or neutral base to a type that is more effective against the weapons of the enemies the player may have in that area. One can also switch weapons to types favorable against the enemy's preferred shield type for an even greater advantage.

No Class 9/10 Graviton Shields or Class 10 Molecular ShieldsEdit

While different shields are better against different weapons, for raw shield capacity, the Graviton Shields are the best up to Class 8.

After Class 7, Graviton Shields cannot be purchased anywhere. A class 8 graviton shield can be obtained by purchasing a Titan. This may have been an oversight by the programmers, as Class 9, and 10 Graviton Shields are programmed into the game.

At Class 9, Molecular and Positron Shields are slightly better than Class 8 Graviton Shields. However, again, no bases sell Class 10 Molecular Shields in the unmodified game, so at Class 10, Positron Shields are the best shields in the game.
