Tactical Package "Shielding"

What are your thoughts on this specific tactical package? I was using it and I honestly didn’t even notice a difference.
It says: Shielding speeds up your armor’s energy shield recharge rate.
What do you guys think about this? I’ll even throw in a poll for yous.

actually is true, the shield recharge a little faster, but just a little bit faster

i don’t really use it, i prefer any other tactical package

I have never noticed a change. I figured i’d give you slightly sturdier shields. (110% or something along those lines.)

Kinda like Juggernaut on CoD 4 back in the day.

If it reduced the delay, then in might be useful.

That.

Also,one of its better uses is if you are a gunner on a Hog…have the Gunner mod and the Shielding package if you are the gunner.

Shield regen should be faster without this

For anyone that doesn’t know:
Shielding Package + Stepping into a Regen Field doesn’t “Stack” BUT No Shield + Shielding + Regen THEN stepping out of it does speed it along a little.

EDIT: Explanation: Regen reduces Delay + Shielding speeds up recharge.

(I have not tested this in a few months so might be fixed. If not the two go well together.)

Yeah other then that, I’m still not really seeing a use for it…

It depends on playstyle. For me i creep on edges of maps. Occasionally stepping in to the map. So i don’t take the heat often thus my shields are almost fully up in the next battle. Even if i get rushed.

For someone who’s constantly in a fight its not so useful.

It’ll sometimes buy me an extra second when I need it but it’d be better if it sped up the delay as others have said.

I think its yet another excuse for them to use armor mods to neuter your spartan of his (up till now) natural abilities.

  • Slow movement, huge maps? Sprint
  • Slow as molasses shield recharge. Shielding mod
    -Cant pick up grenades? Resupply.

Its ridiculous, and shouldn’t be this way at all.

See that’s probably why it’s barely of any use to me… I’m always the one to jump in the fights.
