If anyone shot you, your screen emulates blood and turn in red, depending of damage received. OK. If you have a shield, and anyone shot you, your shield is damaged and you can not see throught it. OK
But after a time (depending of game mode, perks, etc), you screen clears but your shield not. I think that this is an adventage for people that do not use shield against people use it.
Some people says that you can not repair it in a combat, but i answered them that if you can health you waiting, hospitals would be empty for evers. I think that situation is not well balanced among use shields and no use shields.
And another thing, if you try to attack anyone with your shield and when your are in front of him, he target you, his weapon cross your shield killing you easly. is it collisions bad configurated?
Swap your shield with a weapon on the floor then swap it back again - hey presto your shield is undamaged and you can see through it again.
thanks, i will test it this afternoon, but do not understand why must do that, instead wait as other weapons
Personally I don't think the shield should repair it's self, it's part of the pay off for having full frontal protection. A skilled player will use this to their advantage i.e. shoot the shield so the enemy can't see properly then flank them for the body shots.
If your enemy in front of you, have armored ammunition, he can kill you firing at your shield easly. But if he wears a bulletproff vest, and you have the armored ammunition, you can not kill him in the same way that he can do against a shield.
I do not see any adventage in that frontal protection. Even i have in "kill cam" people that do not have armored ammo, kill me firing at my shield.
I think the shield should regen the cracks. It is just annoying and makes a bad weapon even worse.
and LOL @ "full frontal protection." That is complete BS.
I find it more useful on my back.
The shield helps protect the "rear" against bombs, bullets, knifing etc.
