Want to protect your back from bullets, setup in a room and have a bit of protection, or just bash people with a massive, bullet-absorbing piece of metal? Well, if you equip the Heavy Shield special weapon in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, you can do just that. It’s a riot shield that can bash opponents to death and block attackers from dealing damage to your player.
Heavy Shield Stats
Knowing the finer details of each weapon is important. Special weapons are a bit unique, though. Some don’t fire bullets and they can deal different types of damage. This is especially true for the Heavy Shield.
Damage: 50 (each shield bash attack)
Unlocked: Level 12
- Fast Melee
- Shock Plant
- Fast Plant
Fast Melee, as the name implies, allows the player to execute the shield bash maneuver slightly faster than normal.
Shock Plant is an AoE (area of effect) attack that causes shock damage to opponents within very close proximity of the player once he/she plants the Heavy Shield. The damage and radius of the attack are comparable to the Boost Slam Exo movements.
Fast Plant is an attachment that gives the player the ability to plant the Heavy Shield faster than normal.
- Salvation (has a special gold & silver camo)
- Nugget (has a unique red skin)
- Disruptor (has a special grey & white camo)
- Catalyst (has a unique red, blue, and yellow camo)
The first 3 Heavy Shield variants are obtained through loop dropped in Supply Drops. The last one, Catalyst, is unlocked once the player gets a total of 300 kills using the weapon.
