How does the board feel about shields?

Tell me what YOU think about the shield.
Catcher Freeman was like 14 feet with Trapezius muscles and he could fly UNDERWATER.

I love it but it is terrible.

Underpowered as a weapon, annoying as cover.

Good for sniping. Set the shield up and proceed to snipe.

Works one or two games in before the C4 starts flying over 2 buildings to take you out.

That's probably happening while you're sniping so works like one or two kills.

Seeing a dude slowly move towards me holding a shield kinda creeps me out for some reason. Usaly run like a little wussy lol

Wondering why they don't make the body armor out of what the shield is made of.
Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

I have it on the majority of my classes, and pretty much all of my SnD classes. It's pretty bad in this game though. The class I mainly run uses the shield, ballistic knives, a tomahawk and concussions, and the shield is pretty much used to get in closer to people safely. I've been using it since launch on a regular basis and I only actually have 400 some odd kills with it.

They're too easy to flank. Sprint around them and shoot them while there turning around
