AEGIS and the Carbonizer or SMAW

Does the Carbonizer go through the shield? How does that work out? Can the AEGIS catch the SMAW grenades?

I can confirm that the Aegis can catch SMAW rockets, provided they're shot AT you and not the ground, of course.

Carby doesn't go through the shield, but you don't grab anything either. It's like the 2 higher powers clash with such force that they even each other out.

It'd be so cool if I could shoot Carbonizer shots back like a mirror, taking into account angle of incident etc.

But as is, it will block the lazer, but that's it. No shooting it back.

And it will catch a SMAW rocket, but it wont protect you from a blast (like it hits the ground), which in my mind, makes no sense.

That would be cool! Just don't kill yourself.

I have caught 1 or 2 rockets. It is pretty rare because most shoot it at your feet. The phase rifle is the interesting one to catch. Cannot catch behind a wall but if there is no wall then yes. Doesn't make sense.

But since the bullet moves so slow on the return, what's the point -_-

Good for closing ground though I guess

A teammate can also fire their smaw into your shield giving you a smaw round to fire.

I have caught a phase rifle shot , fired it back and got a kill. The phase rifle acts differently when it is phase tuned as opposed to hitting a target in the open. I think when it phase tunes and shoots through solid material it does more damage.
