Does the Carbonizer go through the shield? How does that work out? Can the AEGIS catch the SMAW grenades?
The Aegis Device only blocks the direct beam on the shield. Splash Damage can still hurt the Aegis Device user unfortenately. You cannot reflect the beam.
The Aegis Device can catch SMAW grenades and is able to hold two at the same time I believe.
There is no such thing as splash damage from a Carbonizer. Either the beam hits you or it doesn't. There is a chain lightning jump, but that's not splash damage. It's something entirely different.
Could be. I just used the term for the lack of a better word, but I I do believe that the Carbonizer is able to inflict damage besides the "direct" beam. I believe that I tried it out once by placing a player next to the wall and used the Carbonizer to shoot at wall right next to him and was still able to damage the player. Or I didn't shoot far enough from the players which meant I was still hitting him directly.
