The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necesary, capitalization should be fixed. For more information, see the forum.
The shields blocked bullets and some energy beams, as it could block melee attacks from regular enemies with the exclusion of bosses. Enemies who touched the shields would receive damage and take the effect of the mod it was equipped with. This weapon could only release four shields at a time (or five or six when shoot button is held if five or ten Speed Mods were equipped), and they wore out over a period of time.
One alternative way to kill bigger enemies was to launch the shield on them. Preferably called "axing", the shield would hover over the target, damaging them repeatedly. This method worked best with the Freeze mod. During other times, you could literally destroy the enemy from the inside-out by launching a shield into them. If they weren't destroyed, they would be knocked back.
In challenge mode, after you have beaten the game once, you could buy the Mega Version of this weapon if it had reached V10. The mega weapon would level to V99.
