Shields are an Awesomenauts mechanic. There are different kinds of shields in the game, but they all involve some sort of protection.
Crowd-Control Immunity Shields
- Siege Mode (Default)
Percent Damage Reduction Shields
These shields will reduce a percentage of the damage taken by your 'naut.
Flat Damage Reduction Shields
These shields will reduce a flat amount of damage taken by your 'naut.
- Monarch Blessing (Bronco Yeast)
These shields protect your 'naut from damage by generating a temporary extra layer of health. Dealing enough damage will destroy the shield.
- Snipe (Iron Rifle) Also a Crowd-Control Immunity Shield
These shields will negate any and all forms of direct damage to your 'naut. Crowd control and damage over time effects will still be applied, however.
- Splash Dash (Default)
