Game Description:

Shield should be turned towards the attacking unit to take effect. Has its own durability and can be destroyed. Does not protect against area of effect weapons.

Everyone loves a Cossack with an ECU. It’s like your first girlfriend in High School. Hopping from beacon-to-beacon, hoping for some captures, maybe completing a task… there’s parallels there right? But I digress…

The ECU is the only additional physical defensive shield you can purchase in the game and for 50,000 Silver (Ag), you can have it in either light or medium configuration. Choose wisely though, as once you add it to a side of your bot it cannot be changed and you’ll have to buy another.

ECU’s block gun damage, homing missiles and energy blasts, however they are useless against Splash damage rockets which damage both bot and shield. To use, it’s easy as… just turn your shield toward the incoming fire. When it reaches its damage limit, it breaks off.

The ECU is a peculiar little shield as it can only be affixed on certain bots and on the “arm” portion of the bot, not a top-mounted point. Below is a list of robots which the ECU cannot be added to:

The Schütze, Gepard – the top light hardpoint, Gl. Patton – either of the top light hardpoints, Leo – the top light hardpoint, Griffin – either of the top light hardpoints, Rhino – either of the top medium hardpoints, Gareth – the top medium hardpoint, Galahad – the top medium hardpoint, Fujin, Jesse, Doc
