In the sense that someone can run around you or throw an explosive behind you, yeah, it's not exactly a force field. As for it being weak itself, if that's even being insinuated here, it's def not. I've emptied a whole LMG load into one before and did squat.


Well every now and then you do end up getting shot through your shield. :| it's weird but it happens.

that's because on their screen, they shoot your side and such, i know cause that's how i deal with riot shielder, i sprint & jump while shooting on their side. They die and i move on.

I hear shield users screaming regularly because I either shot their feet or side when they thought they were covered...lag breaks this game in so many ways

I was crouched in a corner in the middle on Raid since my UAV showed a guy coming. I was facing him directly...

He dropshot me and got a headshot... Killcam shoes him dropshotting and shooting right at my shield.
Theater mode shows the same and shows me completely hidden behind my shield...

Remember it's your fault...and by no means bad netcode or hit boxes

I know what you're saying but I'm not talking about lag shots I'm talking about you crouching with a shield and still being shot dead right through the middle of your shield even on the killfeed.

As someone with a gold shield, we have 2 major problems:

1: Netcode is balls, which means people can step around you and shoot your from the side

2: Melee hit detection is also terrible

So your choice is basically get really good with a tomahawk, or make sure you concussion them first. I laugh when I see someone riotshielding because they are basically a free kill, even in hardcore.

Ohhh, that...yeah i had it happen to me a couple time in HC, but i guess it's because he had FMJ or he had my butt
