1 shot to pop a panel just ain’t it. It’s the weakest equipment in the game and everyone will choose every other equipment over it. Make it to where it cause take up to the same amount of damage a Spartan energy shield can. It’ll be on the level of the overshield. Obviously it’ll be rebalance to where the entire shield pop not just 1 panel and probably reduce the carry capacity to 2. Make it come out soon as you throw it too. A shield like this would make me choose it over an overshield in some situations right now I swap it every chance I get.
Yeah, I try to replace it whenever I can. It’s just not that useful, even against small arms fire.
If they’re going to keep it as weak as it currently is then at least reduce it’s pathetically slow recharge rate.
