“When a shield pack is activated, damage is applied to your energy pool rather than your health.”— In-game description
The Heavy Shield Pack is an unlockable Pack item for the Brute class. Activating the shield pack causes damage taken to drain energy instead of doing damage, to the tune of about 1 energy drained for every 8 damage absorbed. It can be toggled as desired, but has a short delay between deactivation and reactivation. Whilst active energy regeneration will cease and a small amount of energy will be drained per second. It is very similar to the Raider's shield pack, but has a slightly better damage to energy loss ratio. Despite this, due to the Brute's lower maximum energy and energy regeneration rate, the heavy shield pack typically proves less effective than the Raider's shield pack.
- Upgrade 1: Improved shield effect.
- Upgrade 2: -50% energy drain.
- Upgrade 3: Improved shield effect.
- The Heavy Shield Pack is best used when the Brute intends to be in small, enclosed areas like the generator room. With the Potential Energy perk the Brute's survivability increases drastically while in indoor combat.
