Shields on a vehicle are created by putting an shield item in an item socket on the vehicle. Shields work on ships, aircraft and submarines. Note that both the maximum shield power and shield regeneration of such items are cumulative.
There is also a Laboratory Module that confers shields onto a ship, though it only lasts for 5 minutes.
- There's also an opportunity to obtain F.A.T.H.E.R.'s shield, by hijacking one of the his ships using a "Trained Hijacker's" item on them. If Hijacking is successful, you will gain the control of the invincible ship along with an extra shield. That extra shield provides 10.000 extra hitpoints.
- See Shield Generator for the main page.
Shield Generators are special Eco buildings that create shields for the buildings in their area of influence.
