SmallerRidley: Except against a team you'll get outflanked without much thought. It has a limited range to either side.
I was thinking something more along the lines of entering a chokepoint with your team's point man using the Aegis Device while the teammates lob whatever (TPC Launcher cells, grenades, etc.) to break through the enemy position. It may work, it may not. The point I was trying to make was I can't seem to think of many situations in which a solo player using the Aegis Device does really well.
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrew 13:3 (NIV)
I think it will be very interesting to see what limits will that weapon have, regarding around its block capabilities(There may be a certain degree of area that it is allow to protect you(Obviously you'll be open in the back), the weapon might stop absorbing firepower but the field may still protect you, etc.).
Hmm, is it possible that the bullets/missiles you absorb through that device be converted to your own ammo?
