Energy shield damage distribution

Post by Ardagan » Sat Jan 04, 2014 7:23 am

Hi,

It seems to me that if I have more than one energy shield equipped, damage still goes to shields one-by-one.

Or it just seems to me that with 8 shields equipped, the more damage I received the faster they regen.

How does shield damage/regen works?

It is true, and we can either say it is game mechanics, or a bug :)

IMHO that should be considered a bug... or explicitly pointed in wiki/game.

When you select power armour it opens a menu where you can slot in the shields, solar panels, laser defence etc, all of which must be researched.

I believe it's perfect as it is. If you have just enough reactors to cover your gear, you will start to slow down as soon as you take one hit because the reactors are charging all shields. So now your exoskeletons don't have enough power to get you away from taking damage, thereby damaging more of the shields.
