The Shield is a feature introduced in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The shield is a portable force field that was made by the Earth Defense Force. When the player uses it, it will deflect and/or block any enemy projectiles that are fired at them, including rockets and fireballs. This way, the player can deflect an enemy's projectiles straight back at them and deal damage to them instead.
The shield cannot be used indefinetely, as indicated by the blue HUD in the center of the shield. The shield's cooldown timer will reset the less the player uses the shield and it can also be recharged from random pickups that appear during gameplay.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
- The shield is extremely useful when being overwhelmed by enemy fire and during boss fights, but only use it when necessary - using the shield too often will drain the shield's charge.
- The shield is very effective for blocking or deflecting projectiles fired by tough enemies like Khnums, Lava Golems, Major Bio-mechanoids and Space Fighters, or groups of weaker enemies such as Cloned Snipers.
