We are allowing shields for the Heroes Divided game, but there are several special requirements.
Shields can be no bigger than 2′ x 3′, with a 4″ lip. Shield bearers will be restricted to carrying only a sidearm/pistol style paintball gun that is pump or mag-fed mechanical only. No hopper. Shield bears will NOT be able to have another role., i.e. medic, demo etc.
Shield bearers can be killed by standard paintball hit, barrel tag, and if a rocket or paintball grenade strikes the shield. If a rocket strikes the shield, all players within 10′ of shield bear are also killed. Shields are part of the players equipment and will NOT be dropped if the player is killed.
