Crystal Shield Projector
"Provide troops with crystal shields."

Summary

  • The Crystal Shield Projector can be deployed anywhere on the battlefield. They function identically to Dr. Kavan's Ice Shields ability, where they are able to negate excess damage.
  • Unlike Ice Shields the Duration always stays the same.
  • Shield Hitpoints deplete over time upon activation.
  • This ability can be used anywhere.
  • Each use costs 9 more Gunboat Energy than the previous, with a starting cost of Gunboat Energy.
  • The Crystal Shield Projector is occasionally available to the Gunboat for a limited period of time.

Offensive Strategy

  • You can use Crystal Shield Projector to have your troops survive an attack from high damage defense such as Boom Cannons or Doom Cannons, without being destroyed or taking serious damage. Notably, it works well with Tanks and Scorchers, buying valuable time for such vulnerable units to avoid or eliminate these defenses.
  • Using the Crystal Shield Projector ability can protect Zookas from being destroyed by Mortars or Sniper Towers.
  • The ability is ineffective against defenses that deal continuous damage such as the Flamethrower since the low damage per hit means that the Crystal Shield Projector only serve as extra hitpoints; they negate little damage.
  • If the ability is used while troops have shields (either through the use of this ability or through the use of the Ice Shields), the ability will merely regenerate the shields back to maximum health; it does not create an extra layer of shield. Hence it should only be used when the troops do not already have such shields.

Defensive Strategy

  • Due to the low health points of the Crystal Shield Projector, Flamethrowers or Machine Guns alone are enough to break the shields.

Trivia

  • There is a unit that creates Crystal Shields, the Protector.
