Can someone explain the Phalanx Shield to me? I just respec'ed my commando at level 27 (playthrough 1 only) and started trying it out. But it's a little hard to understand it completely when testing because things are always so chaotic.

So it shields enemy gunfire/projectiles, but can I shoot through it without damaging it?

Does it make any difference if I'm inside it or just simply behind it?

Does it do anything for the melee enemies that enter it?

Yes, it protects from gunfire/projectiles.

You shooting through it won't damage it any, only hostile gunfire will.

Inside of it might be best, but you could just stand behind it.

No. Melee attackers that run in have to be dealt with by you.

I've seen melee enemies bounce off it before. Although that might just be a scripted joke for midgets.
