- — Description
The Retractable Shield is a tactical equipment only available in the campaign of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The shield is mainly used as defense while moving. The player may fire from the hip with the shield on, similar to the C8 robots. The shield can also be used in "Shield Melee" to kill an enemy at close range. In addition to its offensive capabilities, the shield does not crack, keeping the vision nice and clear.
However, the shield cannot be used permanently. The shield is battery-based, and must be charged by leaving it alone for a while. The energy consumption will be faster when it is hit, or when it is used in Shield Melee.
The shield has one upgrade, making its battery last longer and tag enemies through walls, as long as the shield is on.
